Just give him one more chance

I’m thinking Bobby Petrino’s career has as many lives as the proverbial cat.

Missouri State coach Bobby Petrino, whose return to the sidelines was delayed until the spring due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was named Missouri Valley Football Conference coach of the year Thursday.

Petrino led the Bears to a 5-1 record, and they were co-champions in the spring conference. Missouri State, winners of just one game the previous season, had been picked to tie for ninth in a preseason poll but will open the FCS playoffs Saturday against North Dakota.

No D-1 AD’s gonna be dumb enough to give him another chance, right?  Shit, who am I kidding here?

    The question is, which university president would approve the hiring. The number of ADs who would hire him is probably a larger number than the number of presidents who would hire him.
    Whether a president would hire him is a function of the willingness of that university’s major boosters to stand behind the president.

    Let’s face it. He may be a scum bag, but the dude gets teams winning, so someone in the FBS is going to a least look past the stank and hire the guy.

    Shows how much attention I’ve been paying, I didn’t even know the guy was coaching again.

  8. He is universally loathed within the sport, so no, I doubt it. But he is still a damn good offensive coach.

    (Future conversation):

    (Michigan AD): “Sir, can you beat Ohio State immediately?”

    (Bobby Petrino): “Absolutely!!”

    (Michigan AD): “You’re hired.”

    Bobby Petrino is the shit stain on the underwear of life.

    No matter what you do, no matter how much you try, you just can’t get rid of that shit stain.

  12. SZD had a fantastic segment on him a while back. The dislike for this man is ubiquitous in the sport. No big time program is ever hiring him again.

      That’s what people said before he got hired by Louisville. His teams win games. Some school with a winning history that has fallen on hard times will hire him. UT is a perfect example. Auburn is another likely prospect. FSU too. Hell, GA Yech would probably be well advised to hire him given their track record of late. Ole 404 is gonna be gone soon. Petrino has plenty of prospects. He’ll be back at a major program in 3 years tops.

    My poor father, who died way too young, must be rolling in his grave. He played football at Missouri State.
