What an idiot this guy is. He had it MADE at Louisville, then left for the NFL, where he QUIT after half a season. And now, he was in a great job at Arkansas he had the Hogs doing very well. But now, all that is gone! Great coach, but a gigantic dumb ass
If you thought that the Bobby Petrino affair had already run out of bombshells, Arkansas Athletics Director Jeff Long dropped a nuclear warhead during his press conference announcing the firing of Petrino: The Arkansas head coach had given mistress Jessica Dorrell a $20,000 gift at some point in their relationship. And at that point, you could kind of feel Petrino losing his remaining support among the Arkansas fan base.
And just like that, the career of one of the most controversial coaches in the SEC, if not the nation, came crashing to an end. And a program that seemed like a darkhorse national title contender a week ago was left trying to pick up the pieces.
There are almost too many questions right now to list them all. Will Arkansas go with an interim coach now or try to get a new head coach in before the fall? What does this do to Arkansas’ dreams of finally winning an SEC Championship? In short, what happens next?
Of course, there are a number of schools that would take a gamble on Petrino, Texas Tech maybe? Just a thought.
