Re: Bobby Petrino resigns as head coach of the Falcons to take Arkansas head coaching
Not that I follow these things all that closely these days, but football coaches have always seemed less mobile than basketball coaches to me, like it was just sort of baked into the mentality of the sport.
Basketball coaches are forever looking over the hedge to see what's out there. Football coaches, traditionally, seem to be of the mindset that they're going to make it work where they are. Maybe there's a new breed of football coach - Spurrier, Saban, Petrino - who's more of a rambler, but I can see where football fans would take a dim view of that kind of behavior. I know a good number of New York and New England fans who view Bill Parcells as a complete mercenary.
