Louisville announced Bobby Petrino as head coach on Thursday.
Louisville athletic director Tom Jurich has more guts than we do, and it's a bit disconcerting that he's been pummeled for that courage today. Forget the reactionary media's knee-jerk (and predictable) outrage to the move: This is crazy enough that it just might work. Petrino's foibles and wandering eye have been well documented, but he's an elite coach who deserves another chance at college's top level. Cardinals' fans shouldn't have to worry about Petrino pulling a Petrino again, either: His buyout is $10 million (only $1 million less than Louisville's buyout to leave the ACC). "A buyout to me is not even important. He told me to put $100 million in there," Jurich said. "He wants to stay here. He wants 15 years." Petrino signed on for seven years at $3.5 million annually and consented to a morals clause. He has everything to lose, and everything to gain, and people in that situation don't tend to walk away from the gift of redemption. Jan 9 - 10:56 PM
