Bobby Petrino Has a New Gig

By on December 10th, 2012 in Member Post 6 Comments »

Bobby Petrino has landed  a new  head coaching job. After he tried to get hired back in top tier level schools ( NC State – no, Kentucky – no, Tennessee – no, Auburn – no) he finally settled on taking the job at Western Kentucky.

A press conference is expected to announce the hiring at 4 p.m. CT.

Petrino will replace Willie Taggart, who was hired by Southern Florida – another school that did not have interest in hiring the disgraced coach.

I wonder, if he does good at Western Kentucky will he be back in the SEC before long or his he doomed to finish coaching at the second tier level of college football?

    He talked about at the end ASU, replacing Gus Malzahn… I guess that gig fell through too.

    Too much baggage.

    If he keeps winning, and maybe shows he can lead a program and not drive it into the ground, he’ll get a chance to move up again.

    If he wins, and behaves at WKU, a big name school will eventually pick him up. Miami will looking for a sharp coach like Petrino as soon as they think the NCAA has forgotten about them.

    Speaking of Miami, why is it taking so long for the NCAA to act on that?

      I think its because everybody thinks they deserve the Death Penalty and they aren’t going to do that to another program, especially one like Miami. They figure that as long as Miami is imposing stiff penalties on itself, they can drag out the investigation until the “story” has lost its punch. I’d say another year.

    I still think Petrino will land a high profile gig out west somewhere. Not Oregon or USC but just about anybody else. Its still kind of surprising to me that in the land of Clinton, Petrino got pinched for schtuping the help. I thought that was how Hawgnation rolled.
