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.
Man, I don't know. He left Arkansas open for litigation by hiring her without disclosing their relationship. There were 159 applicants for that job, a public job at that. I think he'd still be the coach if she was a 25 year old teacher or accountant and Petrino didn't disclose she was on the bike to Long. I think jojo is right on this one.
