Petrino is a good coach when the pieces are already in place, or he lucks into a sudden goldmine of hometown talent, like he did at Louisville. He has never proven to be a great recruiter though, and that's going to be even more difficult at a place like WKU. He won't be at Western more than a year or two anyway, but regardless where he winds up, with his baggage, he's never going to be a coach a recruit's mom is going to take a liking to.
