Even though it happened like 8 months ago, in what is sure to be breaking news for most of us, Bobby Petrino (yes) is apparently Missouri State’s head coach (I know, right?).
Tulsa World’s Eric Bailey indirectly brought this news to our attention while reporting on the Petrino’s preparations for Missouri State’s season opener against the Sooners.
Evidently, something happened over the past 9 months that took our attention away from this January 15th hire.
At the time, it was reported that Missouri State had narrowed down the hiring options to Petrino and former Baylor coach Art Briles. Seriously.
Wait, what? The motorcycle?
If you aren’t aware of Petrino’s history at past coaching positions at the college and pro level, note that most if not all of his H.C. tenures ended poorly. If you want to read more, this sums it up very well.
Everyone makes mistakes or questionable choices at times, and everyone deserves second chances. But 4th or 5th or 6th chances. Not so sure.
