07:29 AM ET 12.06 | Well, that was quick. Boise State football coach Chris Petersen met with University of Washington Athletic Director Scott Woodward on Thursday night to discuss the Huskies' coaching vacancy, booster Travis Hawkes tweeted and confirmed to the Statesman. A private flight from Seattle landed at the Boise Airport at 8:02 p.m. Thursday. The people on board immediately got into a black car headed to a Boise hotel, according to airport sources. Woodward and a woman returned to the plane 2 hours, 10 minutes later and left -- without Petersen. The meeting lasted about 90 minutes. ... [Earlier Thursday,] Boise State spokesman Max Corbet said Petersen was in his office Thursday and would be again Friday. That left an opening on Thursday night.

He's turned down better job offers than this...is he getting out of Dodge now?

It's now or never on a jump up from Boise State. The shine is off that apple as other lower-tier progras (NIU) pop up.

What program can offer the stability Petersen enjoys at Boise? What community can offer as much to his family?

I doubt that the shine has diminished in Boise, Idaho.

Some luster is definitely off the Boise apple. But it'll come off the NIU apple pretty soon too.

Chasing the latest shiny object isn't what most smart people do. Good things have more substance than just a shiny exterior.

I think UW has a shot.

December 6, 2013  09:29 AM ET

So they brought a woman to a hotel to meet with Petersen...

Wonder how much she charged UW for her services

PNW was always the rumor of where he wanted to be. Sounds like he agreed to a deal.
