A website,, posted a blurb that former Air Force and North Texas State assistant football coach Chuck Petersen has been offered the head coaching position at Orange Lutheran (scroll down to the Feb. 29 entries on that link).

I left a voice mail for Petersen today, and am awaiting a returned phone call.

Today is something of a target date for Orange Lutheran to announce who would succeed Jim Kunau, who was reassigned at the school following the 2011 football season, Kunau's 19th running Lutheran football.

In 2003, Petersen was named American Football Coaches Association's assistant coach of the year. He has extensive experience as a college football offensive coordinator. He is considered an expert at installing and running the option offense.

A name that was out there as a finalist was Tesoro coach Brian Barnes. Barnes said he had no discussions with Orange Lutheran administration about the Lutheran football coaching position.
