He’s baaaaack. Bobby Petrino has been hired as the new head coach at Missouri State. The school announced the news this morning and will introduce Petrino at a press conference tomorrow.

Former Baylor coach Art Briles was reportedly also under consideration for the position, but ultimately, Missouri State went with Petrino, who was fired by Louisville in the middle of the 2018 season. The Bears, who compete in the Missouri Valley Conference in the FCS, finished last season with a 1-10 record.

Sure, Petrino is a big name that will draw a lot of attention to a small program, but I think Bruce Feldman put it best on Twitter a few minutes ago:

Good luck to you, Missouri State.

    Ha ha, they had better get accustomed to a team of 8 quarterbacks, 14 running backs, and 0 linemen.

    I’m never confident in saying Petrino is a good or a bad coach. Because he’s had some really good years at UofL and Arkansas, and he’s had some years that aren’t exactly good. Like his last at UofL and his time with the Falcons.

      Given enough time, it always ends badly with whatever program he touches.

    They deserve whatever bad comes their way for such an idiotic hire.

    Wow, Bobby P and Art Briles is like choosing between Hitler and Stalin for football coaches.

    This just in his contract states that he must be allowed to also coach the volleyball team during showers. The same stipulation that was in his UOFDULL contract.

    Art Briles would have to go on a leave of absence from Hell in order to be their coach.

    The only thing funnier than them hiring Petrino is that they were also considering Briles. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
