Bobby Petrino is Interested in Kentucky Job


Yesterday news came out that former Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino is interested in the Kentucky football coaching job.

This from

“I just know this, that he’s interested in Kentucky,” Bobby Petrino Sr. told the Louisville Courier-Journal on Wednesday. “He wants to stay in the SEC. That was his life’s goal was to go to the SEC.”

Kentucky announced on Sunday that coach Joker Phillips would not be back next season and that the coaching search would begin immediately. While Petrino might want to throw his name into the mix, he might be a long shot for the job.

I would be very surprised if Bobby Petrino gets an extended look at the Kentucky coaching job due to his past trangressions.

Maybe I am wrong, but I hope I am not.
