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.

    Has he really interviewed 8 candidates already? He must have begun interviewing on Friday or Saturday when it seemed likely that Strong was gone. That just seems like a lot to have already interviewed.

      Doesn’t take Tommy Turtleneck long to interview. Only two questions are asked. 1. Are you immoral?and 2. Is winning the only important thing about your program? If the answer is yes to both questions then they’re a fit for UL.

    If he indeed interviewed, that would confirm many suspicious WKU officials had that he’d be a very brief hire. About as brief as Pitino’s 15 seconds, should he leave.

    No doubt he’d like to be up there in the min $3 million a year range.

      Yeah, UK is all about hiring coaches with integrity, such as Calipari. This is the most ignorant comment I have ever read. Rupp Arena is named after a well known racist and bigot and your current head coach has had several titles vacated. WOW, this comment is exactly the reason that anyone outside of your fanbase thinks UK fans are complete retards.

      This kid is just mad because Bobby is an outstanding coach and he knows its gonna lead to a decade of UofL football shitting all over UK again.

    Nice of Jurich to give him the time of day, but Bobby P hasn’t paid enough penance yet. As much as he might hate to realize it, he’ll be on the hill for another season before he hops back on that “big school” Harley.

    That is absolutely AMAZING! They KNOW FULL WELL that he would only be there until he got a better offer somewhere else. They KNOW that! Yet they entertain him anyway?!?! He’d be gone in 3-4 years tops. UL will never be a destination job in college football. That’s why Charlie is hookhorned now. Next year is gonna be a 5-8 win season at best at UL. If Belicheck took over!!! Hey, if the BEAR came back from the dead, he’d be lucky to win more then 8 at UL next year. This just proves that winning is the only thing to them. I guess that’s why Tommyboy wasn’t mad at Charlie for leaving. It’s all about winning.

    I’m from Bowling Green and as far as I know Petrino has been a class act since he got to Western. He’s amiable even when his past comes up. I think Western fans are well aware that he could leave at any time, and if he leaves after one year he has to pay back like all of the money he’s been paid. Everyone involved knew why he was at WKU and what he ultimately wanted, and WKU got an 8-4 season out of it which is what they wanted.

    Side note: His daughter has a great personality, and by personality I mean body.



    • Gitback Coach
      5:08 pm January 7, 2014 Permalink

      That’s actually good to hear, because I encountered/observed Coach Petrino only three times during his first tenure at U of L, and he was anything BUT an “amiable class act.” He was an arrogant, self-important jerk from BEFORE hello. I couldn’t understand how he and Pitino coulde even co-exist in the same city. They must have eaten at separate restaurants.

      If he has truly learned some humility, good for him. I, for one, will remain skeptical, however.



    • kycatfl1
      5:38 pm January 7, 2014 Permalink

      Funny, from a VERY RELIABLE source, 19 players would have been ineligible had WKU been invited to a bowl game. Old Bobby told WKU officials it wasn’t his job to make sure they went to class and actually passed. Total scumbag. Perfect for UL.

    He is going to burn UL for a second time and they deserve it for not caring what trash they let in there. He is going to take them to the bank, and then get them NCAA penalties and I can’t wait. I’m excited for them to hire him, it just shows how trashy their program really is.

    Interesting how many comments here are along the lines of “It’s all about winning.” Seems like it’s been all about anything but that in Lexington for four years. How do we feel about that? It looks like a lot of people know if Petrino is rehired, UL will continue to whip us every year, so we’re already pulling out the old “moral superiority card”. You know… the same one we hate for fan bases like UL and IU to pull on us.

      thats what happens when your current f-ballrecruiting coordinator was arguably the main guy in one of the biggest recruiting scandals of all time. and then you become the first? school to not fire said coach after he’s given a 2 year show cause.
      and when your head b-ball coach knowingly gave employees raises/bonuses to keep an affair quiet, once again, he didnt get fired for it.
      and, then you look to re-hire a guy who lied to his bosses about an affair that put the school at risk for high-paying settlements.

    Lies from Uncle Tom again, no way in Hell he’s interviewed that many coaches yet. Bobby is more than likely the only one and he gives that number to make people think their knocking down to door because it’s so desireable to live in LOSERVILLE. I’m sure that Saban, Miles, Superior and even Urban has interviewed for this destination fanbase, city and school.

    Petrino is a stud coach. He’s proven it and his teams put up monster offensive stats. Stoops is doing a fine job but it’s going to get ugly if Petrino is dominating him down the road because UK had its chance to go after Petrino. Winning cures any bad history and UL fans remember Petrino having great teams and that’s why they want him back. I don’t blame them…he’s that good. The pressure and what ifs will only go stronger on the UK football program if Stoops struggles.

      If Jurich hires Petrino he may well beat UK on a regular basis. We won’t know that until they play. However, what we will know is that Jurich has no moral character at all. He would have 2 high profile coaches with their embarrassing private sex lives played out on a national stage. Both have proven untrustworthy and seemingly incapable of telling the truth. He also kept a football assistant that was proven to be a cheater at his last job. I think UL would be in for extreme ridicule across the country. For that reason alone, I can’t imagine Petrino being hired.

    So far, I’m getting a lot of “absolutely nots.” I’m saving these as ammunition for later just in case UK does hire him and then I start hearing a lot of “He’s a damn good coach and we always wanted him! Also, it was never actually proven he was on that motorcycle.”

    If Steve Spurrier has trouble sustaining success at South Carolina (with a shit-ton of resources and a huge fanbase), what makes anyone think Petrino can have sustained success at UK (with all of their resources invested in mens basketball)?

    He would make a great representative of the University of Kentucky, and the state as well (he’ll be a state employee). “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

    And like Cards78 says, we’re good here.

He said give me five good years of Petrino and he’s happy.

    O M G get Bobby back! He did so well while he was here! I mean if he can replicate what he did in the Big East he can surely do that & better in the ACC right!? Yeah for sure! We totally don’t need a Bridgewater or Brohm type QB to have any success regardless who our coach is!
    We’re gonna dominate the ACC our first year there without Teddy Bridgewater, just like we did in the AAC with Teddy Bridgewater! I mean he’s such a good offensive coach he doesn’t even have time to worry about defense, but when has that ever prevented anyone from winning against actual good competition? Haha

    Even UK, as desperate as they are to win, passed on Petrino. Louisville will have our retread basketball coach, and a football coach we didn’t want!.

      How is Pitino uk’s “retread coach”? As I recall, after rescuing you from your millionth NCAA probation, he won a championship (two really) and then put you hillbillies in the rearview for 30+ large with the Celtics. Barnfart didn’t have the stones to pull the trigger on Petrino because he had already taken heat for hiring calipari – what with him being a half step ahead of probation at every school he’s ever coached.

    Pitino & Petrino: Poster boys for lying, adultery & abortion !!! What great faces for your athletic dept. Tommy turtleneck is not what he claims to be. Oh yes I almost forgot the NCAA cheater Clint Hurt.

    If UofL hires Bobby Petrino the main reason it will upset some of you is because you whiffed on your chance to get him. Some of your fans wanted him, some did not. You guys know how good Bobby is. Even if it is not him, UofL will hire a great replacement.

    I hate to say it, but UK should have hired Petrino….

    If he is hired at Loserville, they will continue the annual beatdown on UK and it will be our (UK) own fault!

    I didn’t want him, dude bolts soon as he has a better job offer, but yeah some ppl did want him can’t deny that. He is a great coach no doubt, but not top 10, that’s reserved for title holders.
    Out of all the candidates I’ve heard they have interviewed none come any where close to Petrino, if they don’t get him they’ll basically be taking a shot in the dark & hoping it turns out great.

    Petrino would have defintely brought the “AirRaid” to UK….

    The so called “AirRaid” we had last year was a bust as usual…

    I just dont understand why UK continues to hire these dud football coaches, its just amazing.

    What if UL hires Petrino, and it doesn’t work out? He doesn’t win like he did before? It is possible, sometimes you go back and its just not the same……..

    Do you think Bobby will remove Charlie’s core values from the locker room?

    When did Louisville fans start pretending to care about football? Even Charlie Strong commented on the bandwagon Card’s fans. And Petrino? Really? Have they no shame? Wow.

    Great Move. I think Bobby Petrino would be a great coach for Louisville, even if he only stays for a few years. Clearly, did not want to be in the pros. Clearly, wanted to coach football in the South. Clearly, he’s a good coach. Clearly, he likes women and motorcycles. 3 out of 4 ain’t bad…I just don’t understand why he doesn’t want to coach in the pros. :0)
