Arkansas State is having to look for a new head football coach now that Guz Malzahn bolted to Auburn after just one year in Jonesboro. Unlike snakebitte-n Tennessee, there is actually someone who actually is interested in coaching the Red Wolves. The bad news for Arkansas St.? It's Bobby Petrino. At least Luke Matheson says Petrino is . Yes I said it, and no I'm not making it up. Bobby Petrino HAS contacted #ArkSt with interest in their job. — Luke Matheson (@LukeMatheson) December 6, 2012 Of course if this story is true, the question is how Arkansas State gets out of the awkward dilemma of turning Petrino down while finding a replacement for Malzahn that can make supporters forget Petrino was interested in the job in the first place.
