Bobby Petrino Becomes Louisville Head Coach…Again
Louisville has a new head coach with a familiar face.
The school announces that Bobby Petrino has returned as head coach of the Cardinals.
According to ESPN’s Joe Schad he will receive a seven-year deal to coach the team that gave him a start.
He coached the team from 2003 to 2006, until he left to coach the Atlanta Falcons. Where he then left the team in the middle of its turmoil to coach Arkansas.
THEN he got caught with his mistress after an accident on his motorcycle, which turned out to be a Razorbacks volleyball player.
Its safe to say its been a wild ride for the coach.
After leaving his latest job as head coach for Western Kentucky he will now have to pay $1.2 million back to the school for early termination of the contract which was only worth $850,000.
Petrino was 41-9 with Louisville during his career with a win in the 2006 Orange Bowl on his resume.
