per USA Today:
Boise State has hired Arkansas State coach Bryan Harsin, a person with knowledge tells USA TODAY Sports.
Harsin, 37, went 7-5 last season in his first year as a head coach. He was an assistant at Boise from 2002-2010 before going to Texas as offensive coordinator for two years.
Harsin replaces Chris Peterson, who was hired Friday to take the job at Washington.
The buyout Harsin will owe Arkansas State is $1.75 million that must be paid within 10 calendar days. However, Boise State is getting $750,000 as a buyout from Petersen for his departure to Washington.
Petersen was 92-12 in his eight seasons at Boise State, turning the Broncos into a national program with two Fiesta Bowl titles. The Broncos won five conference championships under Petersen and between 2008-11 won 12 games in every season. The Broncos reached as high as No. 2 in the AP Top 25 in 2010.
