08:23 AM ET 01.10 | Stanford reportedly has made preliminary contact with Boise State coach Chris Petersen about its coaching vacancy, but so far there is no word on whether he'll be interviewed. ESPN reported that Stanford has asked for permission to interview Petersen, a report that Boise State officials declined to comment on. Meanwhile, associate head coach Greg Roman and offensive coordinator David Shaw are scheduled to interview this week for the job left vacant when Jim Harbaugh became the 49ers' head coach.

I'm sorry, but I just don't see Petersen accepting. He's turned down bigger jobs than Stanford in the past ten years.

It looks like a big wish list for a couple of great spots. Is Greg Roman any good?

I honestly don't know. How does one grade the results of an "Associate Head Coach"? At least with Coordinators you have tangible proof of accomplishments in the form of statistics. But with AHC's, what do you use as a measuring stick?

4.23 in the SEC Coach's Combine and 5.7 in the PAC10 Coach's Combine.

That means it must have been a 9.8 in the Big Ten's combine.

Peterson can coach. Time to move on unless some real competition is the deterrent......

I would really like to know exactly why Petersen and Patterson have remained at BSU and TCU respectively. They have been courted by "high profile" schools. My assumption is they are grounded in character traits beyond money and prestige but outside the health of Petersen's son, I've seen no other reasons released. It has got to irritate high profile schools that these two turn them down to remain at "The Little Sisters of the Poor."

And in another year, Patterson has no reason to even think about it. He'll dominate the Big LEast and be in a BSC game every year, if not get a legit shot at the NC game.

Peterson is a real question mark. Is Boise that great a place?

DC, "character traits", I think you're right! Maybe, just maybe Petersen and Patterson feel that by staying put they can help the kids and the program become better, instead of going to some "high profile" school and having to put up with all the BS that comes with being a HC.

AO, that question is the one being asked by fuming, mad, irate and arrogant ADs and University Presidents when Petersen says no thanks to their $$$$$$$ and the opportunity to coach their BCS conference team!

OT, my guess is you got it right with this part. You want loyal/passionate fans but if the crazies get in the majority....

+1. TCU is getting ready for the Big Time. If you can't beat 'em. Join 'em... And THEN beat 'em.

What "high profile" schools has Petersen turned down?

... I am asking this because I know when Florida was looking for a coach, internet rumors suggested Petersen was being talked to. It doesn't mean an offer was provided to Petersen that he turned down, it just means they talked. Were there other "high profile" schools that actually offered Petersen?

Good point G97...I should have said "BCS conference" schools instead of high profile...but there are many on here that think all "BCS conference" schools are high profile just because of conference affiliation. My bad.

~ All Out ~, yes some people think Boise is a great place. I've been there a few times and really enjoyed myself, I'm not so sure I would like to live there.
