Oh, these successful D-1 coaches think they are infallible ... so above mere mortals who have to play by the rules.
Take Bobby Petrino, age 51, who just became former head of Arkansas football thanks to being an adulterer and a liar. He can add "fired with cause" to his impressive resume. (He also coached in the NFL.)
The tipping point: "Arkansas fired head coach Bobby Petrino on Tuesday, publicly dressing him down for unfairly hiring his mistress and intentionally misleading his boss about everything from their relationship to her presence at the motorcycle accident that ultimately cost him his job."
That's Bobby P. in the photo, post-accident. This grandfather wasn't wearing a helmet went he went for his joy ride with his gal pal.
The mistress is 25-year-old Jessica Dorrell, an attractive blonde who is (was?) to be married this June to a handsome young fellow named Josh Morgan. Until very recently (like, this week) Josh worked at the University of Arkansas as the director of swimming and diving operations.
I'm assuming this wedding has been postponed or cancelled now that hubris, cruising on a motorcycle, brought this pathetic duo back to earth. Thud!
Amen to how this blogger put it: "Instead of spending time cheating on his wife he [Petrino] should have spent more time with his wife."
Predictably, some Razorback fans went all Woo Pig Sooie. They staged a rally not in support of the attractive Mrs. Petrino - but in support of Bobby Petrino.
Such a backwater move.
Update: Casa Petrino (which includes a putting green, pool, basketball court, and wine cellar) is already for sale. Take the virtual tour, and marvel at what a pigskin can deliver for one family.
Update: Attorney LaRue Robinson, who also follows college football, has good advice for college administrators.
