After taking a one year hiatus from college football, Bobby Petrino is back to coaching. He’ll lead the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers. And he’s returning to the state of Kentucky, a place where he burned a lot of bridges when he coached Louisville.
Then again he’s burned bridges everywhere he’s gone.
Especially at Arkansas where he gave a job to his mistress Jessica Dorrell. And then lied about her being with him during his motorcycle crash.
Petrino isn’t well liked by the Atlanta Falcons either; where he had a brief stint as an NFL coach. Nevertheless, multiple sources are confirming the hire, and WKU will formally introduce him at 4 pm today.
