Report: Bobby Petrino is Western Kentucky's new head coach

Monday December 10th, 2012

Bobby Petrino will be named the new head football coach at Western Kentucky University, according to a tweet from the Bowling Green Daily News' Chad Bishop.

The job will mark Petrino's return to coaching following a tumultuous 2012 for the former Arkansas head man. Petrino was fired from his post at Arkansas following a motorcycle crash involving himself and a former Arkansas volleyball player he hired to a position within the football program. It was subsequently revealed that Petrino was having an affair with the woman, and that she had received an undisclosed $20,000 gift from Petrino.
