Chris Petersen, according to the reports, has agreed to a new five-year contract that will keep him with the Broncos through the 2010 2014 season.
“This is something that obviously we’ve been wanting and working on for quite a while with coach Pete, and we’re just thrilled that we’re able to come to terms and reach an agreement on this new contract,” Boise State athletic director Gene Bleymaier said. “We would like to think that coach Pete will be with us at Boise State throughout his career in coaching … We couldn’t be happier with coach and his staff and what they’ve done for our university and for our football program.”
The financial particulars of the deal were not released, but President Bob Kustra told the Statesman that it’s more about the length of the deal than money.
Petersen did allow that “considerations” for his assistant coaches were built into the new agreement.
