    Re: Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    The guy has lied to his past 3 employers and his wife and family. What idiot is going to believe a word he says? Maybe he can catch on as an OC somewhere, but why would you ever let him be the face of your program? Why would you let him be the representative of your university that goes into recruits homes?

    I'm not sure even ESPN wants him and that's pretty bad (after all, they let serial cheater Holtz represent them).

    Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    Perception is a HUGE factor for CF programs these days. This is especially true in the SEC. The fact that he straight up lied AND tried to cover up AND broke univ. statutes by giving the chick a Cush job spells doom for BP in the eyes of any component Univ. Pres. or A.D.

    The dude has shown a pattern of incredible immaturity - unless / until he spends a few years NOT screwing up, he's toxic, imo.

    Is there a school desperate enough to hire him? Most likely, yes - but to put it in perspective, three SEC head coaches have been filled since he was fired and he wasn't seriously considered for any of them. Not even the barn...
    Exactly. The lack of a serious look by the SEC teams answered the question about his future that many were unsure of. It could have gone either way imo.

    Less than a year ago Arkansas was back to heights last seen with Lou Holtz. Now he can only get a sham phone interview(scolding)with one of the dirtier top gigs at Auburn.....washed up.

    I believe the Arkansas team crumbling this year had a lot to do with it. Not leaving his team (your program) on a solid foundation with his departure says something about his coaching methods. It was Louisville Déjà vu.

    Not so fast my friend. I'm betting wifey would like the money that would come from a new head coaching gig as much as Bobby.

    All I can say is that Mrs. Petrino is much more understanding and forgiving than Mrs.1967 would be.

    You choose your actions in life. You cannot choose the consequences.

    BP has done too many people too much personal wrong in one lifetime to be trusted with a head coaching job at any level. If any organization chooses to ignore his past, they deserve to share his future.

    Petrino is learning a lesson Fulmer had trouble accepting. A winning record on the field will only go so far in countering a corrupt mindset. Both are washed out as far as an SEC coaching job, over character issues, not their ability to coach.

    Sometimes woman will stand by their man for their kids future. If Petrino can't land another big time job and his character becomes less of an issue with the job market, maybe she'll leave him. No doubt he's a serial adulteress. I mean he hired his own mistress? Pretty advanced

    Lying to your employer is not a good thing. When people kept saying, "oh, they will hire him back at Arkansas after the season", I kept saying, not a chance in hell. There was a lot more to his exit than people knew. The Arkansas AD is highly respected and his word is weighty right now.

    I agree. Southern Miss is who I think.

    And maybe she is standing by for the money.

    Re: Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    I am truly shocked that Kentucky did not hire him. It seemed like a huge no brainer. There may be more issues with him that has been released in the media or maybe they felt he would bolt as soon as he got back to some success.

    Re: Is Bobby Petrino washed up with the big jobs?

    The fact that Kentucky wouldn't bother showed his real market value. It then resembled the NFL draft, with Petrino falling farther and farther through the rounds. He remains radioactive. I suspect his half-life is two years, though Arkansas State or USM may be desperate enough to have him.
