The word is that Bobby Petrino only received a courtesy phone interview from Auburn after the President and Jacobs vetoed his hiring. Supposedly football never came up but only his behavior at Arkansas. At one point Petrino offered that he and his reconciled with wife come down and have a face to face but was refused. He was left hurt and angry according to Scarbinski.
I personally though he could choose between Tennessee and Auburn, but Kentucky didn't even want him. Now he is being mentioned with lesser jobs and scenarios.. if so and so leaves he might get an offer.
Petrino is washed up at the big schools imo and will have to work his way back up at a smaller school.
I was wrong gauging winning vs baggage. Lying to the same people who would hire him has done it's damage. Mom was right
