First up, Boise State University Head Coach Chris Petersen.
He's been coaching the Broncos since the 2006 season and has guided them to three unbeaten regular seasons and two BCS bowl wins, in the 20007 Fiesta Bowl and the 2010 Fiesta Bowl.
He is the first and only two-time winner of the Paul "Bear" Bryant award, which he won in 2006 and 2009.
He also won the Bobby Dodd Coach of the year award in 2010.
The Razorback Nation's Aaron Peters, Adam Alter and Mike Irwin discuss Petersen's chances.
Chris Petersen is the name we are debating today. (Aaron) Not very realistic to be Arkansas' next head coach if you ask me. He's built Boise into a power and never even hinted that he wanted to leave Boise and his name always comes up when a big school has an opening, so what makes this more valid than any of those, Adam?
(Adam) The biggest positive I've got on this guy is if there's ever a chance to get him out of Boise it might be right now. They made the big move to the Big East thinking that might make them more of a player at the BCS table, well those automatic bids are going away and now they have to travel 1,000 miles for every football game and get almost nothing out of it.
(Aaron) Yeah, but there's also other big jobs out there besides Arkansas. Mike Irwin, what do you think when I ask you is Chris Petersen gonna be Arkansas' next head coach?
(Mike) No, he's not. He'd be a great get. Look, there's no question this guy can win at Arkansas, he can win in the SEC. What he's done there is amazing and he hasn't just beaten mid-major competition. I mean, he's proven he can win in a big game. He is in a position where if he ever leaves, he's not gonna take a rescue the program job.
