UW’s Scott Woodward in Boise tonight to interview Chris Petersen

The rumblings first started tonight about a private plane flying from Boeing Field to Boise.

Then a report from Bruce Feldman of CBSsports.com confirmed that Washington athletic director Scott Woodward was in Boise to interview Chris Petersen, moving up a planned meeting they had for Friday.

UPDATE, 10:44 p.m.: UW has offered to make Petersen one of the highest-paid coaches in the Pac-12, multiple sources have told The Seattle Times. Petersen was scheduled to make about $2.2 million this season at Boise State.

UPDATE, 10:18 p.m.: The Idaho Statesman, citing a Boise State booster, confirmed the meeting between UW and Petersen. That booster, Travis Hawkes, tweeted that he heard after the meeting that Petersen was “expected” to stay at Boise. Take that for what you will.

UPDATE, 9;25 p.m.: Woodward boarded a private jet after a 90-minute meeting with Petersen, according to reporters at the Boise airport. Petersen did not get on the flight, for what it’s worth. (See tweets below.)

It certainly sounds like this could get wrapped up quickly — by Friday, likely — if Petersen wants the job.

ESPN reported earlier Thursday that Woodward was to interview Alabama offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.

Here’s our recap of Day 4 of UW’s search.
