As recently as this season, Chris Petersen claimed to take his coaching career one year at a time. He insisted he wouldn't be the next Joe Paterno or Bobby Bowden, and won't be coaching into his 60's.

It wasn't unrealistic to imagine Petersen retiring a Bronco.

But after 13 years in blue, he decided it was time to don a different color. Like purple.

Chris Petersen has agreed to a 5-year, $18 million contract with the University of Washington. Petersen met with Huskies Athletic Director Scott Woodward for 90 minutes Thursday night, and gave a verbal commitment to become the next Washington head coach. The news became official after Petersen met with his team Friday morning.

Boise State announced linebackers coach and associate head coach Bob Gregory will serve as interim for the school's upcoming bowl game. Petersen did not speak with the media Friday, but select players will be made available on Monday.

So who will take over the reigns of the Bronco program? Athletic Director Mark Coyle said he has already begun a nationwide search for the next Boise State head coach. Several names stand out, in former Boise state defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox. He would be an odds-on favorite if current defensive coordinator, Pete Kwiatkowski goes with Petersen, as some outlets reported Friday night.

Arkansas State head coach Bryan Harsin and former Boise State coach Dirk Koetter are two more hot names. Koetter is rumored to be interviewing at the University Monday. :whistle:

No one that Mike Smith has worked for in previous stops. No one with Jacksonville ties.

Falcons Smith would lean on continuity in coaching search

AP News
Lynn DeBruin

Dec. 10, 2013
FLOWERY BRANCH—Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter has interviewed for the head coaching position at Boise State, Falcons coach Mike Smith confirmed today. Koetter wasn’t available for comment and Smith declined to discuss Koetter’s candidacy other than to say he’s aware Koetter has talked to Boise State about the position.
“My focus and Dirk’s focus is on cleaning up the game from yesterday and that’s what he’s doing right now,” Smith said, referring to Atlanta’s 22-21 defeat at Green Bay Sunday. Smith bristled when asked a follow up question regarding the potential impact to his staff if Koetter is hired by Boise St. "Look, this isn't the time or place to discuss things that haven't happened yet, but I will say unequivocally we don't want to derail the offensive process and continuity we've developed as an organization. Whatever direction that Thomas, myself, and Mr. Blank choose to go in, be rest assured we will keep the train moving forward. When asked if his comment regarding continuity may include the return of former offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey, Smith wouldn't confirm or deny. "Mike Mularkey is an outstanding football coach that helped us build something very special here, but commenting prematurely on any hire would be getting ahead of ourselves and ahead of the goals we still hope to obtain this season."

Chris Petersen recently left Boise State to become the head coach at the University of Washington. Koetter was head coach at Boise State from 1998 to 2000 and posted a 26-10 record with the team’s first trip to a bowl game before leaving to become head coach at Arizona State.

Koetter is in his second season as Falcons offensive coordinator. He guided one of the league’s best units last year but injuries to Julio Jones, Roddy White and Steven Jackson plus sub par offensive line play have contributed to a plummet in offensive production.

Unless that move coincides with a trade for Adrian Peterson, then Mike Smith will have lost the complete confidence of this Atlanta Falcons fan.

If the Falcons bring Mularkey back, I might have to turn in my fan card, otherwise I'll just be screaming for everyone in the organization to be fired.

Well looks like Dirty Dirk is going to be here next year. I was really hoping for a change at OC just for the simple fact that even when we were healthy last year we still had redzone woes and this year the redzone efficiency has been pathetic.

Falcons DC Mike Nolan contemplates his future
Wednesday, Dec. 11, 2013
By Michael Cunningham

FLOWERY BRANCH – While it appears that Boise State has zeroed in on Falcons’ offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter, Atlanta’s defensive coordinator Mike Nolan declined to say whether he plans to return in 2013.

The Falcons’ defense has been worse than its offense. Nolan has run the defense for seven different NFL teams since 1993.

“That’s the team’s decision, not mine. So that’s a question for later,” Nolan said.

If Koetter and Nolan are not back and head coach Mike Smith is retained, he would have his third set of coordinators. Koetter and Nolan followed Mike Mularkey and Brian VanGorder and have been in place for the past two seasons.

The Falcons’ defense has been hit by injuries even harder than the offense in 2013. As the losses have piled up, the team has played rookies more regularly.

On defense in Sunday’s 22-21 defeat at Green Bay, linebackers Paul Worrilow (71 snaps, 100 percent) and Joplo Bartu (25, 35 percent), defensive ends Malliciah Goodman (25, 35 percent) and Stansly Maponga (15, 21 percent), cornerbacks Desmond Trufant (71, 100 percent) and Robert Alford (71, 100 percent) and safety Zeke Motta (53, 75 percent) were rookies who all played major snaps.

Nolan said one positive for the season has been identifying unknown rookie talent such as Worrilow and Bartu, who both were signed as undrafted college free agents. Nolan said he also liked some of the schemes he came up with this year, even if the results didn’t show it.

“So going down the road, there are some things we did that we will be able to utilize in the future,” Nolan said. “And maybe it’s good they didn’t go so well because other people won’t be expecting us to use them, thinking, ‘Well, that couldn’t be anything they want to carry over.’”
