|Boise State & TCU Become Coaching Destinations
|SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) -- Boise State and TCU used to be stepping stones for coaches.
They came, they won and they left for bigger, richer programs.
Those days may be over. As they prepare to meet in the Fiesta Bowl, Boise State and TCU have become destinations.
That much was clear on Friday, when the Broncos announced they had reached an agreement on a five-year contract with Chris Petersen, a deal that came a few weeks after TCU's Gary Patterson agreed to a contract that will keep him in Fort Worth through 2016.
