Just once, I'd love for a University President to stand up and say, "Yes this guy's a sleazeball, but dangit he wins football games." If that's not going to happen at Arkansas, I'm not sure where it could happen.
A head coach is a face of the university and often one of the highest paid state employees in their state. What Petrino did was despicable and Arkansas could ( and may) fire him for cause. A head coach has to be an example of virtuous behavior because it's part of his job description.
"This isnít stats vs scouts - this is stats and scouts working together, building an organization that blends the best of both worlds. This is the blueprint for how a baseball organization should be run. And, whether the baseball men of the 20th century like it or not, this is where baseball is going."---Dave Cameron, U.S.S. Mariner
