Bobby Petrino is back in the news as Missouri State announced the former Louisville coach has been named the 21st coach in program history on Wednesday.

Interestingly, Missouri State is scheduled to travel to Arkansas on Sept. 17, 2022. While there’s a slim chance Petrino is still at Missouri State at that time, we can dream!

Petrino sat last season out after being fired from Louisville at the end of the 2018 season. Petrino, of course, has also coached Arkansas, the Atlanta Falcons, Western Kentucky and several other spots as an assistant but it seems wherever he coaches, he often leaves the program off in worse shape than when he inherited it.

That’s the prevailing reaction among those that have heard the news of Petrino’s hiring at Missouri State.
