We could have made Chris Petersen the offensive coordinator or receivers coach, but why not allow him to have the duty of developing the quarterbacks?
Turning Kellen Moore into the winningest signal-caller in the history of the FBS (50) is one thing, but Petersen has proven that it really does not matter who his guy is. He won with Jared Zabransky, and he will continue to win with whoever is his guy.
Petersen is a superstar developer, and he has been the most impressive coach to follow outside of your obvious two or three star choices.
Coach “Pete” has led his Broncos to a top-five finish in both total and scoring offense (Is 73-6 considered a good record?).
Plus, despite only playing the elite competition a few times a season, we have seen Boise State put up points, points and some more points in the process. There has not been anybody better in terms of more consistent, productive track records in the passing game.
Note: Petersen was a former QB and WR coach at UC Davis, Pittsburgh and Portland State. Before coming the head coach at Boise State, he was their OC (’01-‘05).
