Re: Bobby Petrino
At first I thought any AD would have to be nuts to rehire Petrino.
But then I started thinking that, really, the one thing he did very wrong was lie to his boss.
Sure, an affair is a very bad and very damaging thing, but they happen all the time. If he would have come clean with his AD and told him the whole story, they would have had a press conference with a "good wife" standing beside him and Petrino baring his soul (like he actually has one), and he would have stayed the Arkansas coach.
But he lied to his boss and made him look very bad and that is not a good thing to do if you want to remain a member of the employment continuation club.
He'll lay low for a while and resurface at some mid-major in a year or two. He'll confess that his soul has been cleansed and he's a changed man and blah blah blah. But the man can build a winning football team and that will trump all to somebody.
