Chris Petersen rumors fly anytime a big time program has an opening and so it's hard to take just a normal rumor seriously, however multiple outlets are reporting that Petersen will indeed interview for the Badgers football head coaching position. First the Wisconsin State Journal speculated that it would be happening and then earlier on Friday Madison radio station The Big 1070 began reporting that two sources were telling them Petersen would interview with Alvarez on Monday.  Petersen has consistently shot down rumors of him leaving for other jobs in the past and he has deflected questions up until as late as yesterday.

Can't be unknown and it would be hard news by now if it was going to happen this soon - unless he's breaking his contract. Seems like he's one of the most honorable head coaches in the business, so that's extremely unlikely, too.
