BOISE -- The big question continues to linger. Who will replace Coach Petersen at Boise State?
There's been a lot of chatter today that a decision might be imminent.
Mark Johnson confirmed Tuesday that Dirk Koetter had a video conference interview with president Bob Kustra a day after his phone interview with athletic director Mark Coyle.
This on a day that former offensive coordinator and Boise native Bryan Harsin withdrew his name from consideration.
So, the short list KTVB reported Monday is down to two . . . or is it?
Boise State's "short" list:
- Dirk Koetter, - Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator
- Justin Wilcox - UW defensive coordinator
- The wildcard: Jeff Tedford - former University of California coach
Reports out of Northern California close to the Cal program say Tedford interviewed Tuesday, and that this is now a 2-man race between Koetter and Tedford.
Tedford coached the Cal Bears for 11 seasons taking them to eight bowl games with the best season in 2006 and a 12th ranking after finishing tied for 1st in the (then) Pac 10.
He was fired after last year's season when the Bears won only three games.
Expect a decision to be made Wednesday and the introductory presser soon after.
