Yeah, that's the reason they gave.
The one thing I've learned about the world is that the Big Guys do whatever they want. And if they want something to happen, it happens.
If Petrino would have come clean with his boss, they would have concocted some story and public confessions that would have left Petrino as coach in some vague probatinary status. He wins football games in a big conference that makes a lot of money and those kinds of guys are hard to find. But he lied to his boss and publicly embarassed him and that is the real unpardonable sin.
