SEATTLE (AP) - Chris Petersen says it was simply a gut feeling that it was time to take on a new challenge by leaving Boise State for Washington.

Petersen was introduced as the Huskies new coach on Monday at a news conference overlooking his new football home in Husky Stadium. Petersen says he's constantly been asked `why?' he finally left Boise State after eight years as the Broncos head coach.

The 49-year-old says it was a combination of timing and fit.

Petersen was 92-12 at Boise State, including five conference titles and two Fiesta Bowl victories. He replaces Steve Sarkisian, who was 34-29 in five seasons at Washington before taking the job at USC.
