It should come as no surprise, but despite Penn State's reported efforts to sway him, Chris Petersen will not be leaving his post at Boise State. This happens every year -- usually multiple times -- and the result is almost always the same, so this latest news should come as no surprise.
The report comes from David Jones, the same person who wrote of the Nittany Lions' efforts to woo Petersen over the last two weeks.
First, Boise State coach Chris Petersen has made it known he is not interested in Penn State's vacant head coaching position. No shocker there. Petersen has not professed any interest in any vacant position for five years, including UCLA and Texas A&M just this month.
Petersen was reportedly Penn State's top coach, though the search continues to be deliberate, likely lasting well beyond the holiday period. It's unknown which coach the search committee will turn to next, with all staying quiet on the Penn State front lately -- outside of the Petersen reports.
