Huskies morning links: Assessing the dismissal of Marcus Peters

First, more reaction on the Huskies’ dismissal of Marcus Peters.

  • In the end, Jerry Brewer writes, Chris Petersen had little choice but to boot Peters.
  • Peters’ dismissal is the latest in a string of behavior issues with which Petersen has had to handle. “This is not a shock,” said Rick Neuheisel, now an analyst for the Pac-12 Networks. “I’ve said before that this was going to be (the Huskies’) biggest challenge, going from a coach who was very player-friendly, very lenient in Sarkisian — not that that makes him a bad guy — but he was trying to get good players. And players were supposed to toe the line, and when they didn’t it wasn’t the end of the rope for them. …“It’s to each his own. All I know is, the coach in the chair has the best facts and knows how best to proceed.”

Discipline under Petersen:

  • Suspended: Cyler Miles (all of spring, plus season opener); Damore’ea Stringfellow (all of spring, then transferred); John Timu (two weeks in spring); Derrick Brown (indefinite and ongoing); Marcus Peters (one game in September)
  • Dismissed: Patrick Enewally; Lavon Washington; Marcus Farria; Marcus Peters
