The Washington Huskies have been one of the biggest surprises in college football this year, emerging as the team to beat in the Pac-12 while climbing to the No. 4 spot in the nation.
And now it looks like head coach Chris Petersen could be heavily rewarded for a job well done.
According to Adam Jude of the Seattle Times, “Petersen is in the process of negotiating a long-term contract extension with the University of Washington to remain the Huskies’ coach for the next decade.”
The extension could reportedly be for up to ten years, while making Petersen the highest paid coach in the Pac-12.
Petersen, currently in his third year with the team, has compiled a 24-12 record. Later today, the Huskies will be looking to advance to 10-0 this season with a win over USC at home.
Kickoff between Washington and the Trojans is set for 7:30 p.m. ET on FOX.
