Lake had six more stops before finally landing in Seattle: Washington DBs (2004), Montana State DBs (2005), Tampa Bay Buccaneers assistant DBs (2006-07), Detroit Lions DBs (2008), Tampa Bay Buccaneers DBs (2010-11) and Boise State DBs (2012-13).

The University of Washington announced Monday that head football coach Chris Petersen will step down following the team's bowl game.

After three straight 10 win seasons, the Huskies fell to 7-5 in 2019. He's only 55. He will coach in the bowl game for the Huskies.

In a press inaugurate, Petersen says he'll be a "Husky for lifestyles, however now is the gorgeous time for me to step a long way flung from my head coaching duties, and recharge".

Chris Petersen's sixth season as Washington's head football coach will also be his last.

Petersen led the Huskies to two PAC-12 championships, the 2016 College Football Playoffs, and three consecutive New Years Six bowl games. He coached defensive backs in 2014-15 and was elevated to co-defensive coordinator alongside Pete Kwiatkowski in 2016.

This is one of the best coaches in the country, someone who seemed built to do this very job in this very place, and he just decided he'd rather not work in this particular trade.

"Chris has been transformational for not exclusively our soccer program, however our complete athletic division", athletic director Jen Cohen mentioned.

"Chris has been transformational for not only our football program, but our entire athletic department", UW athletic director Jennifer Cohen said. Jimmy is a great teacher of the game and his track record of developing young men both on and off the field speaks for itself. "I'm in a position to't thank him enough for his provider and leadership, and I preserve up for having him stick with it staff in a leadership advisory role, so he can continue to impact folks across our department and your total campus".

Washington was anticipated to be a contender within the Pac-12 once more this yr, however struggles to interchange a number of key gamers on protection and an inconsistent offense led to a subpar marketing campaign. Washington will be the 42-year-old Lake's first head coaching opportunity. If moving up the college-football food chain was Petersen's priority, he would have left Boise State long before 2013. He previously coached defensive backs for six years in the National Football League with the Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. "This wouldn't be possible without the mentorship of Coach Petersen and I would like to thank him for everything he has done for me, as well as Jen Cohen for entrusting me with this opportunity". "He combined with a lot of really good players at Eastern to be the kind of player that elevated our entire program to which the program has never receded and Jimmy's a real big catalyst to all that".

"I could not be more excited about taking over as head football coach at the University of Washington", Jimmy Lake said.
