Petrino To Receive Extension

Bobby Petrino left Louisville after 2006 for the NFL. It took less than a season for him to realize he didn’t belong. After terrific success and a BCS bowl win at Louisville, Petrino took over as head coach for the Atlanta Falcons. With three games left in the ’07 season, he walked out of town, quitting on the Atlanta Falcons. Several days later, he was announced as the new head coach at Arkansas.

 In his third season, Petrino has the Razorbacks playing in a Sugar Bowl, after going 10-2 this year. Urban Meyer’s announcement this week that he was leaving coaching, thus creating a head coaching vacancy in Florida, left many in the gator nation to speculate who their next head coach would be.

Bobby Petrino’s name consistently came up as a potential candidate. While Petrino will not be the next head coach at Florida, his name being rumored to the gig may have just earned him more money and a fat extension. ESPN’s Joe Schad reported today that Petrino is close to signing a seven year contract extension.
