In a surprise move, Chris Peterson is stepping down as head football coach of the Washington Huskies. He does so after a 7-5 regular season. His resignation is effective after the Huskies bowl game.
Defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake will take over as coach.
Peterson is regarded as one of the best coaches in the country. During his 6 years at Washington, he was bowl eligible each year. This, after a sensational run at Boise State which saw the transition from the WAC to Mountain West.
Peterson will take on an advisory leadership role with the school. His record, entering the final game, is 54-26.
