ESPN analyst says Petersen wouldn’t be interested in UW

If you were watching the Boise State-Fresno State game, the announcers quickly discussed whether Chris Petersen would be interested in the UW opening.
Analyst Rod Gilmore said he didn’t think so saying “the Washington job isn’t the one that would pry him away. It would take something really special.” He mentioned that UW would be a rebuilding job and that it’s a big city that might not suit his family and that “I just don’t think that’s the one that would work right now.”
One thing to keep in mind is that the ESPN announcers get a lot of special access to the team and players that regular media don’t get thanks to all the rights fees they pay. The announcers and producers usually fly into town a day or so ahead of time and meet with players and coaches to get info to aid in the telecast. So it’s pretty likely Gilmore said that having gotten that impression either from Petersen or others close to the program. Truth is, that’s also what everyone has been saying for a while now, anyway.
