Sorting through a whirlwind week and a day:
Now Petersen apparently has emerged as a top candidate for the Huskies post, and that’s nothing new. He was contacted by Stanford and UCLA in recent seasons, too. But Petersen – a former Yuba City High School, Sacramento City College and UC Davis quarterback – has made one thing abundantly clear: He appreciates the low-key lifestyle. He doesn’t chase jobs. He wants to blend in with the rest of his staff and not stand out in a big market. His family loves Idaho. Translation: The grass is bluer in Boise.
