Boise State Football: Head Coach Chris Petersen Met with Washington AD

Update: Multiple sources, including are reporting that it is a done deal. The offer that AD Scott Woodward brought to Petersen on Thursday night must have been enough to convince the coach.

Multiple sources, including Idaho Statesman sports reporter Brian Murphy, CBS Sports columnist Bruce Feldman and Idaho Press-Tribune Boise State beat writer B.J. Rains confirmed late Thursday night that University of Washington AD Scott Woodward was in Boise to talk to Boise State head coach Chris Petersen:

Twitter blew up as the conversation commenced in a local Boise hotel. So much so, that it may have even caused Broncos AD Mark Coyle to leave a basketball game early: 

According to these same sources, the meeting lasted approximately 90 minutes and ended with Woodward flying back to Seattle with his plane leaving at 10:23 MST:

Brian Murphy had tweeted the flight information earlier in the night, but then followed up with a stake-out at the Boise Airport. He wasn't alone; B.J. Rains was also hanging out in the freezing cold to get a glimpse:

Some in Bronco Nation were very concerned because of these events.

First, the earlier reports that Petersen would be interviewed by Washington on Friday sure seem as if it were the other way around. After all, they came to him.

Where will Chris Petersen coach in 2014?

Also, the meeting lasted a mere 90 minutes. Why fly all the way to Boise for a 90-minute meeting unless it was a full-blown sales pitch?

Also, Petersen could have something in his hands to think about. Woodward certainly didn't come unprepared, and an offer is most likely on the table.

However, this isn't the first time a team came to Petersen with an offer. In every previous case, he has remained in Boise. Will this time be the same?

Stay tuned.
