I wanted him to get fired because he's a great coach and kicks our pooper every year. Not because I thought he didn't deserve to be HC because of the disgrace/shame.
No way Arkansas should have fired him. Fine him $1 Million dollars over two to three years and move on. Auburn should absolutely hire him - no one is perfect - his wife has forgiven him - and he is one of the top two or three college coaches in America. I am sick of this self righteous stuff about Petrino. We have all sinned and made mistakes in our lives at one time or another. He is a good man and an unbelievable coach.
The bothersome thing to me in his past is not that he was unfaithful to his wife-that is his own personal business. It's that he purposely (mis)used university funds in hiring his girlfriend and lied to his boss and tried to cover up the relationship. That left the AD between a rock and a hard place concerning his job as football coach. The blatant misuse of power and thinking he was so far above the rules is concerning. That said, if he becomes head coach at Auburn, I will be all for him. It does seem that he would need to be on a short leash, however.
