A coy Bobby Petrino?

Gag me with a spoon

Take us back in your career a bit. You were at Louisville and then jump to the NFL and the Jacksonville Jaguars. How’d that work?:

“I was sitting in the meeting room with my brother, Paul, and we were watching video from the year before, right around this time. … The secretary came in and said, ‘There’s a guy by the name of Tom Coughlin on the phone,’ and we both kind of laughed and joked, yeah right. … I went and got on the phone and Coach Coughlin told me his offensive coordinator just left and took the head job with the Cleveland Browns and he wanted to hire a young quarterback coach and grow him in to be the coordinator. … I flew down there, went through the interview. … I really didn’t want to take the job. I was real hesitant about taking it, but I didn’t want to look back 10 years from now and say, ‘What if I would’ve done it?’ … Went and did it and had a great experience.”

Seriously, does anybody believe it took Petrino more than a nanosecond to make up his mind on that career move?

    And while he feels responsible for Arkansas’ 4-8 season, he didn’t mind too much getting in this dig.
    “The weight room, training room and locker room are way off the charts, way better than what we had at Arkansas.”

    ‘What if I would’ve done it?’ … thought he was talking about the volleyball hottie here

    Did Bobby leave his brother a note explaining he took another coaching job?
