Bobby Petrino to Louisville reportedly picking up steam

The Louisville Cardinals could be on the verge of landing former head coach Bobby Petrino. Following Charlie Strong’s departure to Texas, Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich stated that he wanted to hire the best available candidate. When it comes to university donors, that is apparently Petrino.

After interviewing for the job, Petrino is one of Jurich’s three finalists.

Make no mistake about it, despite his troubles at Arkansas, Petrino is one of the best coaches in college football. He spent four seasons coaching Louisville (2003-06) before leaving for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons. In his time there, Petrino coached the Cardinals to a 41-9 overall record. Following his one season stint with Atlanta, he took over for Arkansas, turning the Razorbacks into a double-digit win team.

Petrino was fired by Arkansas after the 2011 season for an inappropriate relationship with a former student-athlete turned employee. He sat out a season before being picked up by Western Kentucky, who has already interviewed offensive coordinator Jeff Brohm for a possible replacement.

Petrino has an 83-30 overall record in the NCAA.
