Chris Petersen now joins former Oklahoma head coach Bob Stoops and former Florida/Ohio State head coach Urban Meyer as coaches who have left the college game in their 50s and in stunning fashion.

Washington head coach Chris Petersen is leaving his head coaching job at Washington, defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake is taking over. He also spent time with Petersen at Boise State from 2006-11.

The Huskies entered the 2019 season with Pac-12 title and College Football Playoff aspirations, but they finished 7-5 in a significant step down after posting a combined 32-9 (24-5 Pac-12) mark over the prior three seasons.

Even after a disappointing season in Seattle, there was nothing to indicate that Petersen would be on his way out of the program.

Conley, Director of the Europe program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, told The New York Times . And it's making North Atlantic Treaty Organisation stronger", Stoltenberg said.

"It has been a privilege and a professional dream fulfilled to be part of this world-class institution", Petersen said in a statement released by Washington. Boise State coach Bryan Harsin also was on Petersen's Boise State staff.

"Chris has been transformational for not exclusively our soccer program, however our complete athletic division", athletic director Jen Cohen mentioned. Petersen will coach through the Huskies' bowl game before transitioning "into a leadership advisory role for Husky Athletics", according to the media release. "I'll be a Husky for life, but now is the right time for me to step away from my head coaching duties, and recharge". Vacancies exist around the country, as programs change course and look to go in a new direction after the disappointment of a season gone counter to expectation. I had personally thought Lake was going to be groomed to take over as the next Seahawk coach; he's that good. He was promoted to co-defensive coordinator in 2016 and has served as the Huskies' lone defensive coordinator in the last two seasons.

But Lake immediately went into coaching, serving as a graduate assistant for EWU before coaching defensive backs (DBs) in Cheney from 2000-03.

Auburn was fined for celebrations after the 2013 Iron Bowl that ended with the "Kick-Six" and after the 2017 upset of No. 1 Alabama that clinched the Southeastern Conference Western Division title. "It has been such a privilege to watch how he has been so committed to the development of our young men, not just on the field, but more importantly off".

Lake is about to turn 43, worked with Petersen at Boise State for a few years, worked as the defensive backs coach, and worked his way up into the defensive coordinator spot at Washington. Lake was elevated to defensive coordinator in 2018.
