As in who?
Would be great if true. One thing is for sure, not one name of potential coaches that has been mentioned publically would be "higher" than Bobby Petrino.
Its really not a question if he will stay more than a few years I just used 2 years as an example because he wont win that quickly. My problem with BP is the history of screwing the people he has worked for in the past and his history of blatant dishonesty. Take Ark. for example, he cheated on his wife in and of itself most people would forgive him but what else related to that act did he do to exacerbate the problem. He lied about so much more than that to the people that trusted him to coach 18 to 22 year olds on the field daily. He has had a pattern of being dishonest to his employers and associates and the fans of the places he has coached at. Would you really want your son to play for this guy? If your answer is yes then by all means support him being hired but being a parent of an ex athlete I would never have permitted him to play for this guy. BP isnt honest and has no integrity.
Why would any person want this yellow belly turd. Why would you want this man coaching your team when he had turned his back on every team he has coached. WHY.
Have you UK fans fell this far behind the ladder to want this turd.
My god people !!!!!!!!
My would not even talk to him ever. If he called my house lol I would tell him to fuc* off.
He is a crap turd period. He has let every fan base down from the NFL to every school he has coached.
Why would UK want this baggggggaaaaaggggeeeee. Are we now willing to sell our soal's for A new coach.
If Bill Clinton and Rick Pitino can get caught cheating & keep their jobs...Why shouldn't UK hire Bobby Petrino (a legit top 5-10 BCS coach) after he's lost his job, was publicly humiliated & personally humbled?
IMO, right now is the PREFECT time to get him...Yeah, he's damaged goods...but DUH, otherwise he'd never be interested in UK!!! And I'd much rather take my chances w/ Bobby, as someone like Fulmer or Cutcliffe or "insert retread". Right now, as far as we know (as fans)...Bobby's as close to a sure thing, home-run hire as UK can get.
(Though personally, I'm still on the Butch Jones bandwagon!)

None of the people you just talked about left there teams like bobby turd head did.
lol doing what he did against his wife is one thing lieing and leaving your team is another.
Thats true, so hire Petrino and have a CIW on the staff after he leaves. :(
Put your best players on the field. It's as simple as that. You hire the best available option to get wins, put cheeks in the seats, and get some excitement started at one of the least exciting football programs in the land.
I think BP is our best chance at quick ressurection. I also think there are other coaches that can do the job, but they have their own baggage, like not being proven at an SEC school or as a head coach period. We may or may not hit the jackpot with other options, but BP is a PROVEN winner on the field in the toughest league in the country.
Scheme around BP's shortcomings, if he accepts, awesome. If he doesn't, we tried our best. I think it is a mistake not to dump a pile of cash on his harley, though.
You are correct.
And on a side note I'm sure his Harley could use some repairs. :-)
So the "Ends justify the means" thats what you are saying. So no matter what BP has done its ok so long as he wins. This attitude is so sad and shows the desperation of some KY fans. Well, go ahead and wish,plead,beg or whatever you want to do to get BP because UK may win some games with this guy but UK football will have lost its soul. I dont understand our society today that when a guy can do the things he has done to so many people regardless of the amount of hurt or embarassment that those actions have brought to the people that trusted him people are willing to overlook all of that so we can win some games. I insist we can have a good coach and win but it may take a little while to find that coach but its worth the wait.
Speaking in terms of coaching ability only, how many attainable coaches would be in that group? I'm guessing not many, if any.
Key word: "publicly"
If setting his site's higher is Rex Ryan, a guy who's struggling in the NFL, and never been a succesful HC in college, I seriously question his judgement. I'm not even saying that Ryan would be a bad choice, but he is unproven. Petrino is not.
Interesting. Keep us posted por favor.
I can say that at least one coach with a massive name and success rate had been contacted. No clue if there is mutual interest.
Petrino is a helluva coach. His preparation is legendary. Game plans will be done months in advance. I can tell you that as a UofL fan, it was great to watch his intensity in the sidelines. His talent wasn't always the best but he coached them up. Your AD has to bring him in for an interview. If Strong were to leave UofL, I'd hope Jurich would do the same.

Is he currently employed as a head coach or not?
Hoptown and Minter getting along. What's the world coming too?
Bill Cower? I've heard behind the scenes he was advising, but not that he was interested as a candidate. Would fit the bill though.

I'm sorry guys. At this point it does the program no good to name names. If something changes or once things are finished (takes job or says no thanks) I'll be happy to share. Fisher knows who I'm talking about and has heard the same info I have. Which is "uk has reached out to a major ( big name) but we have no idea if there is interest".
Besides the name, you guys know as much as we do at this point. Suffice to say they Barnhart is not leaking a thing nor should he.
If anyone else on here were to make the same claim without mentioning a name, link, etc. we would get the "BS" flag waved at us.... and it wouldn't matter whether or not it did the program any good to announce it.
I guarantee if I said I knew Mitch has been in contact with a "massive name" coach who has a great success rate... YOU would want to know who I was referring to.
