OU football notebook: Boise State coach Chris Petersen to visit Norman

By Jake Trotter, Staff Writer, Published: March 22, 2010
The 2006 Fiesta Bowl is about to come full circle.

Boise State football coach Chris Petersen announced that he will visit Oklahoma’s practice sometime next week during Boise State’s spring break for "professional development.”

"I just think Bob Stoops has done such a great job at Oklahoma over the years — he’s got his formula on success,” Peterson told the Idaho Statesman. "I just have a bunch of questions. And I want to watch how they practice.”

OU and Boise State have plenty of history.

The Sooners were knocked off in overtime by the Broncos during the 2006 Fiesta Bowl through a series of late-game trick plays. The win helped solidify Boise State as one of college football’s top programs, even though the Broncos don’t play in a BCS conference.

Peterson also plans to visit Oregon’s football program during his off week.

Ex-OU assistant recruiting coordinator David White has taken an assistant’s job with Yale, according to

White came to OU as a graduate assistant after spending several seasons as the head coach at Las Vegas Bishop Gorman.

Thanks in large part to White, OU signed a trio of big-time recruits from Bishop Gorman in running back DeMarco Murray, linebacker Ryan Reynolds and defensive lineman Justin Chaisson.

After serving out his term as a grad assistant, White was given the job of assistant recruiting coordinator, which he held last year.

After spending last week away from football due to spring break, the Sooners will come back to practice beginning today.

OU will also practice Wednesday, Friday and Saturday this week.
