BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Back in 2006 when Chris Petersen began his first year as head coach at Boise State, he drew up a pretty simple game plan for himself: Give this head coaching thing a try and re-evaluate at the end of the season.
In so many ways, it's safe to say things have worked out better than Petersen - or any Broncos fan - could have expected.
When his team plays at BYU on Friday night, Petersen will be on the sidelines for his 100th game as head coach of Boise State, a program that was successful when he took over but one he has clearly elevated, making it, among other things, college football's winningest during the last seven years.
