Chris Petersen steps down at Washington, Jimmy Lake named head coach

Chris Petersen To Step Down At Washington Jimmy Lake Named New Head Coach

Chris Petersen has resigned as football coach at the University of Washington. There's just a handful of guys as a coach that you respect and admire and Chris Petersen is one of my guys that I have that opinion of. He left after only one season and eventually wound up on Petersen's staff at Boise State as a defensive backs coach.

Lake had six more stops before finally landing in Seattle: Washington DBs (2004), Montana State DBs (2005), Tampa Bay Buccaneers assistant DBs (2006-07), Detroit Lions DBs (2008), Tampa Bay Buccaneers DBs (2010-11) and Boise State DBs (2012-13).

The Huskies went 7-5 this season, finishing with a victory over rival Washington State.

"It has been a privilege and knowledgeable dream fulfilled to be a part of this world-class establishment", Petersen mentioned.

He's been under the tutelege of Petersen for almost a decade; he knows everything about the structure, discipline, and systems of how to run a program and have success at this level.

"Chris has been transformational for not only our football program, but our entire athletic department", Washington athletic director Jennifer Cohen said.

Washington's defense has led the Pac-12 in total defense and scoring defense the past four years.

The school said Petersen, 55, will transition into a "leadership advisory role" within the athletic department.

As a Huskies fan, I can't wait to see what Lake will do as the head coach and I'm intrigued at how the offense might change with Petersen no longer on the sidelines. Jimmy is a great teacher of the game and his track record of developing young men both on and off the field speaks for itself.

The 42-year-old Lake drew interest from Colorado during CU's coaching search last year, but opted to stay at Washington with Petersen. Together with veteran defensive coach Pete Kwiatkowski, the duo have been the architects for a Washington protection that's been among the many finest within the nation in recent times and developed a protracted checklist of National Football League draftees.

"I could not be more excited about taking over as head football coach at the University of Washington", said Jimmy Lake. He was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 2016 and has served as the Huskies' lone defensive coordinator in the last two seasons. The SEC announced the fine Monday, two days after fans nearly completely covered the field at Jordan-Hare Stadium following the 11th-ranked Tigers' 48-45 win over No. 9 Alabama. It beat Southern Miss in the 2015 Heart of Dallas, but lost to Alabama in the CFP, dropped the 2017 Fiesta to Penn State, and lost the Rose Bowl against Ohio State.

The SEC fines start at $50,000 for a first offense and go up to $250,000 for a third and subsequent violations. Kwiatkowski was MSU's defensive coordinator from 2000-05.

Because Johnson already has earned his degree, he could join another program as a graduate transfer and wouldn't have to sit out a year.
