I know it’s cold, but did hell freeze over today? According to Wave 3’s Kent Taylor, former UofL head coach Bobby Petrino interviewed for his old job today, seven years to the day after he left the Cards for the NFL. Taylor reports that Petrino is the eighth coach UofL AD Tom Jurich has interviewed for the vacancy.
Petrino did not leave Louisville on good terms all those years ago, and it is widely known that there aren’t many warm feelings for the current Western Kentucky head coach in the UofL athletic offices. However, Bobby claims to be a changed man and the Cards are desperate to hang on to their success, so…who knows.
UPDATE: InsidetheVille is reporting that Petrino is expected to be announced as UofL’s new coach within the next 24 hours. Heads up, Louisville volleyball team.
