Posted by our site Mod..
Just got a text from an Arkansas commitment and he told that the rumblings are that Boise State's Chris Peterson will likely be the next coach at Arkansas.
Swapped texts with the guys at our 247 Arkansas site and they have said they heard the same from some recruits in attendance today. Patterson and Gundy the two other names people are tossing around.

That is what I am thinking as well.
I agree.. But where there's smoke, there's fire... I thought Peterson would never leave Boise because of the situation with his Son.
Gundy seems more reasonable to me.
Not always when it comes to coaching searches. I honestly don't see Peterson taking the Arky job. I think he could have already had a better job if he wanted it.
Pathetic. Same boosters that called DGB and said petrino was going to wherever.
Not far off.
Can't wait till these guys settle for some Oc.
I'd be shocked.

I also heard Peterson may take a look at Cal FWIW.

He's a west coast guy, if he ever moves, it will be to a PAC-12 school.
Dude would never take the job at Arkansas. GTFO.
I could be wrong, but I thought he turned down the Southern Cal job before Kiffin took it. And now we are supposed to believe he wants Arkansas instead? I would be shocked
There hasn't been a big job in years he wasn't likely to take
I dont think it is far fetched at all. Arkansas has the money and facilities to get a big time coach
I just don't see this happening. Doesn't his son have some sort of disability?

I could see him heading to Eugene when Chip Kelly takes off at the end of the year. Oregon and a place like Cal would be the only type places I could see him going. JMO
I read somewhere that his son's doctor moved to the Bay Area.
Dude could have almost any job he wants and he is going to take the Arkansas job. I find that hard to believe
He is a good coach. But, he wouldn't be a good fit at Arky imo.
Saban and Miles would take Petersen's lunch, on the recruiting trail.
Petrino got out recruited as well, but his x's and o's gm was top notch. Plus, he wasn't a nice guy, which added more to his in gm ability.
Petersen should stay at Boise or take the Cal job.
Don't be an idiot Jeff.
There is a lot more to it than that for Peterson. As I already said he has reportedly turned down some very big jobs before. I just don't see him taking the Arky job.
Aussie, who is the girl n the far right again?
I love that pic!
Won't believe it till its confirmed, very few situations would get Petersen to leave Boise and Arkansas doesn't seem like one of them.
All-seeing instrument. Supreme perception. Omnifocal accumulator... Its gaze upon the blind. Information divinity by man designed.
I'd be shocked not because I don't think Arkansas is a good enough job for him -- it just seems like an odd fit. I can't imagine that nerdy dude calling the hogs.
