I can't stand th guy, but he CAN coach.....is this the start of the rehabilation for him?
He is a brilliant coach, but IMO not a very bright individual. Taking your mistress to lakehouses and on motorcycle rides? Sorry I'll pass based on character and cockiness (the untouchable factor) alone.
No. Why would you hire a guy you can't stand?
Hell no. It doesn't have anything to do with his recent issues either. The guy is a self absorbed prick. He's proved it time and time again.
Personally, I would not touch him with a 10 foot pole. There are consistent themes with his character that I could not ignore.
However, I'll put this to the board:
Assume that Joker Phillips will be gone after this season. UK has already sold its soul in hiring Calipari as their basketball coach which they're fine with since he's winning. Since they've crossed the Rubicon with Calipari, I wonder if they would make a play for Petrino as a head coach. It might be too soon but they didn't have any issues in hiring Calipari with all the rumors surrounding his Memphis program.
Just sayin'--Someone will take a chance on him but it may take another year or two or three--depending on how desparate folks are to win.
I am so thankful that Auburn did not end up with him as our coach. So thankful!
Not if you want to maintain a program you can be proud of .
I'd hire him as Director of Junior Staff Transportation.
Alabama delenda est.
Just be sure he paid his insurance.
BP is a football genius...That being said, he is a moral failure...And that REALLY could change...Right now I would not want him to coach my son...If he could truly repent and become a person with a right estimate of himself I might reconsider...
He will get hired again. Is he a scumbag? Well, yeah.
The question is would I hire him though. No. Caveat: if my team sucks and has always sucked, yeah. If my team stands for anything at all, no.
You grad, bro?
I agree completely with this. I think UK should hire Petrino just to shake up the dynamic in the SEC East. Could you imagine Kentucky actually becoming a relevant power? Good god.
I believe this is a practical world and that I can count only on what I earn. Therefore, I believe in work, hard work.
