Chris Petersen Stepping Down at Washington

The Big Lead

In what can only be categorized as a surprising college football coaching carousel bombshell, the University of Washington announced Monday afternoon that Chris Petersen is stepping down from his role.

Petersen will transition into an advisory role in the athletic department after the Huskies bowl game. Defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake has been named the team's new head coach.

Peterson went 54-26 in six years at Washington and led the school to a College Football Playoff appearance, a Fiesta Bowl, and a Rose Bowl.
