The University of Washington announced that head coach Chris Peterson will step down after the Huskies’ bowl game and be replaced by defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake.
Petersen owns a career record of 146-38, including his eight seasons at Boise State and six years at Washington. Director of Athletics Jennifer Cohen announced that Petersen will transition into a leadership advisory role for the athletics department.
In his six seasons at Washington, Petersen led the Huskies to two Pac-12 Championships (2016 and 2018), the 2016 College Football Playoffs, and three consecutive New Years Six bowl games. The Huskies won 39 games from 2015 through 2018 – most ever by the UW in a four-year stretch. If the Huskies win their bowl game this year, it will be the program’s 40th victory over the four seasons from 2016 to 2019, setting a new record.
