Chris Petersen staying at Boise State

With big-time head coach openings at Stanford and Michigan, Chris Petersen announced on Monday that he isn't going anywhere.

Petersen said he would remain as Boise State's head coach. Petersen was reportedly getting interest from Stanford about its head coaching vacancy. Jim Harbaugh left Stanford last week to take the San Francisco 49ers head coaching job.

Petersen is 61-5 in five seasons at Boise State, including two undefeated seasons. His teams have won at least 10 games every season he's been there. Petersen has also led Boise State to two Fiesta Bowl wins.

And once that business was out of the way, Petersen announced that Brent Pease was returning to Boise State as the offensive coordinator and Robert Prince was returning to coach the wide receivers and coordinate the passing game.
