As you all know, Bobby Petrino does not have a job. And according to The Courier-Journal’s Adam Himmelsbach who spoke to Petrino’s father, he wants a job. And he wants one bad.
So bad, that his father says that he is actually interested in the open Kentucky job that Joker Phillips was just thrown out of.
Now for the most part, the Kentucky football program is one that pursues coaches, not the other way around. But when a man’s father says he needs a job, he needs a job.
“I know he wants a job; he needs a job,” Petrino Sr. said by telephone Wednesday. “He told me, ‘I need a job, Dad.’ I said, ‘Well, you must still have some money. You made 31/2 million dollars.’ And he said, ‘Yeah, I do. It’s not the money.’ He just misses coaching so much.”
“I just know this, that he’s interested in Kentucky,” the father said. “He wants to stay in the SEC. That was his life’s goal was to go to the SEC.”
That’s all well and good until you begin to think about Petrino’s prior coaching
