SEATTLE (AP) At some point during the whirlwind of the past few days, Kalen DeBoer grabbed the phone and for the first time in his coaching career had a conversation with Chris Petersen.
One of DeBoer's big questions for the highly successful former coach and someone he admired from afar: How best to make the transition from coaching at a Mountain West school to being the head coach at Washington?
"I think his experience moving from Boise (State) here, I think is very relatable to my situation. ... I'll pick his brain as well as others on what's been successful here and how to attack it. It was just really good dialogue and understanding Washington in general," DeBoer said Tuesday.
