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.
I very seriously doubt this. Petrino broke some very important rules that would get college presidents fired. Arkansas basically had no choice given the details that have been reported.
