Today, in awkward

Okay, maybe it wasn’t a Kiffin-esque fire the coach on the airport tarmac moment, but you gotta admit canning a coach while his show is airing has a certain cold-bloodedness that you have to respect in this day and age.

I mean, if you have to pay the guy $14 million anyway, you might as well get your money’s worth out of publicly humiliating him.

I really wonder who’s the next idiotic/lazy AD to hire Petrino.  You know somebody will, despite the almost certainty of it ending in disaster.

    Does he not have a locker where they can just leave a note?

    One can only hope he lands on his feet at Auburn. They deserve each other.

      I read today on either the AU, or FU, board where a fan thought Petrino would be a great OC addition. Took about 15 minutes after he was fired.
      Now I have never been a Chaney fan as our OC but petrino would be too much for me. It does sound like an Auburn type of thing though.

  3. Why would a major university be so unprofessional as to tell media before they’ve told the employee? Wait… we’re talking about Louisville.

    I really don’t see how anyone worth a damn would look to fill that vacancy. Seriously! You’d have to be desperate, delusional or a homer like Brohm if he takes the job.

      And we’re talking about Petrino. If anyone ever deserved to be ditched midstream in the most outrageous way possible, it’s him (including by Louisville). Hope he enjoys the dish that is best served cold.

    The only thing colder would be to fire him on the air during his show.

    FSU might be interested.

    We already know Petrino has no shame so I’m sure this doesn’t phase him.

    He will next take his talent to The Nick Saban Home for Ex-HCs. Nick will rehab his butt.

    I could make it on 14 million for a few years.
    Could even afford a brand new Harley and some babe to ride… with me.

    They should have printed out a short letter and taped it to his locker.
