Maybe what I expect out of public figures is different than what you expect. As a Louisville fan, I listened to him reiterate his commitment to Louisville and his love for the city that he called his home. Then, two months later he was interviewing for another position. This didn't just happen once or twice but after every season. He met with Auburn in secret at an airport while they still had a head coach, his former boss Tommy Tuberville. Then, he signs a huge deal with Louisville and publicly committed himself to the fans that he was hear to stay. A month later he left for Atlanta. Now he has bailed on Atlanta after 13 games.
I realize that all coaches are opportunistic but few are as bad as Petrino. Additionally, from everything I've heard, he is a jerk in person and impossible to befriend. He is a liar and I don't back down from my earlier assessment of him.
