His analyst/coach life fits together nicely, but if his two half-year jobs ever yield to one year-round opportunity — not that he is actively looking for such a change — Petersen would like it to be in Minnesota.

“This is where I’m from,” he said. “I’ve been around. The weather in California is great, the people in Texas are phenomenal and New York is fun. But Minneapolis is such a great city to live in. Whenever I would leave Minneapolis and play somewhere else, it was always great to come home.”
