Bobby Petrino had already embarrassed himself several years ago when he quit on the Atlanta Falcons after winning just three games in his only season as head coach – leaving the team before the season was over in order to take the same job at the University of Arkasnas.
It got worse on April 10 when he was fired for what was called an inappropriate relationship with a staffer, Jessica Dorrell. The affair was discovered after Petrino, a married father of four, and Dorrell were involved in a motorcycle accident.
It was later discovered that Dorrell, who is half Petrino’s age, was put on the fast track for a job under Petrino and that Petrino had, at one point, given her a gift of $20,000.
Petrino landed another job in December as head coach at Western Kentucky.
