Chris Petersen: I Told Art Briles the Full Story About Sam Ukwuachu's Boise State Dismissal

Uh oh Art Briles

Baylor's Sam Ukwuachu was found guilty of sexual assault on Thursday. If Baylor was hoping it'd be the beginning of the end to the ugly and indefensible incident, well, they thought wrong.

Ukwuachu started his career at Boise State, where he was dismissed, among other things, for a sexual assault for which he was convicted in 2013. 

On Friday morning, Art Briles said that he was unaware of Ukwuachu's past at Chris Petersen's Boise State.

Later in the day,  Chris Petersen — now at Washington — struck back.

After Sam Ukwuachu was dismissed from the Boise State football program and expressed interest in transferring to Baylor, I initiated a call with Art Briles. In that conversation, I thoroughly apprised Coach Briles of the circumstances surrounding Sam's disciplinary record and dismissal. 

So now either Art Briles is lying, or Chris Petersen is lying. Either way, it's all bad.
