Texas A&M struggled on offense throughout the 2022 season, leading to the dismissal of Aggies offensive coordinator Darrell Dickey. Jimbo Fisher is the team’s offensive play-caller. The college football world is waiting to see if Fisher hands over play-calling duties to Dickey’s replacement.
The last time Petrino was an offensive coordinator was in 2002 at Auburn. His first stint as Louisville’s head coach followed (2003-06).
Petrino, 61, has been at Missouri State since 2020, posting an 18-15 record. He was fired at Louisville during the 2018 season when the Cardinals had a 2-8 record.
As a college football head coach, Petrino is 137-71 overall. He posted a 34-17 record at Arkansas, marked by double-digit wins in 2010 and 2011. He was fired before the 2012 season following the infamous motorcycle incident. In the NFL, Petrino went 3-10 with the Atlanta Falcons in 2007.
