Bobby Petrino Is Interested in the Kentucky Job

Bobby Petrino wants to get back into coaching. That much is not a surprise. I guess it shouldn't be a surprise either that he'd be interested in getting back into the SEC according to his father:

"I know he wants a job; he needs a job," [Bob] Petrino Sr. said by telephone Wednesday. "He told me, ‘I need a job, Dad.’ I said, ‘Well, you must still have some money. You made 31/2 million dollars.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I do. It’s not the money.’ He just misses coaching so much." ...

"I just know this, that he’s interested in Kentucky," the father said. "He wants to stay in the SEC. That was his life’s goal was to go to the SEC."

It would be kind of a reverse Rick Pitino type of deal for the former Louisville head coach to set up shop in Lexington.

There's certainly no guarantee, though, that Mitch Barnhart would be interested in hiring the former Boss Hog. The stench of the Jessica Dorrell scandal has not lifted off of Petrino, and he did put his former university in a bad legal situation with the way he handled her hiring in the athletic department. In fact, Yahoo! Sports' Pat Forde reported on Sunday that the school was not planning on including Petrino in the coaching search.

In any event, this information was not meant to be public:

Too late now.
