SEATTLE (AP) - A person familiar with the decision tells The Associated Press that Chris Petersen has agreed to leave Boise State and be the football coach at Washington.

The person told spoke on the condition of anonymity Friday morning because the hiring had not been announced by Washington. Petersen reportedly met with Washington athletic director Scott Woodward on Thursday night in Boise.

The decision was first reported by ESPN.

Petersen will replace Steve Sarkisian, who went 34-29 in five seasons at Washington before leaving earlier this week to take the job at USC. Petersen was 92-12 in his eight seasons at Boise State, turning the Broncos into a national program with two Fiesta Bowl titles. But he's coming off his worst regular season in his tenure with the Broncos after going 8-4 including a 38-6 loss at Washington in the season opener.
