Let's turn out of some sports in the future for former Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino what a disaster it was for the university.
And for Katrina he was of course fired after the scandal that found that we determined that Petrino was in a motorcycle accident.
Lied to the university.
Lied to the police.
About the female that was with him during that accident that a University of Arkansas employee that he and inappropriate relationship with you can see Petrino there.
In the neck -- coming out this press conference.
And it is all come crumbling down and the last couple of weeks for Bobby -- we are joined now -- some analysis on this from.
You jeans -- -- good to see you my friend thanks this has been awful for -- for Petrino he -- you were from ETL associates are also an NFL agent that's for.
Was one of the rising coaches in the game he's messed up a couple of situations.
For not reasons similar to this he's left programs high and dry including in the NFL and the college level but he's turned programs around he did it in Louisville.
And what he did an Arkansas building them into a national title contender and 23 years is tremendous.
But can he survive the scandal.
You know I think that what he's gonna have to do take some time off to rehabilitate and rebuild his image because it's really hurt right now.
And I think you know possibly college football analyst -- for a year or two who.
Too toxic for someone to touch in that regard I think some station we'll take a chance on him just because of his knowledge of the game and his resonate as a football coach.
I think that the NFL.
Is going to be virtually impossible for him to litigate back -- -- -- this situation with Atlanta.
-- in 2007 the way he left that team I believe he's going to be black ball by the -- I -- -- -- that's where I'm curious about this because there's this relationship that he had was so when appropriate for many levels one it was with a former student.
I'm athletic department employee.
Hundreds if not thousands of text messages with this -- going back months.
And -- -- 20000 dollars for still trying to figure out so.
You say he's more toxic -- it in the NFL how do you let him be in a situation where he's molding.
Young men and kids isn't -- more likely to get a gig in the NFL maybe as a coordinator not as the face of.
Franchise well the precedent existed from 2007.
Questionable commitment questionable integrity questionable loyalty the way he let the falcons it was unheard of thirteen games into the season he left the falcons.
One day after he told the owner of the team Arthur Blank that I'm committed to this team stand here one day later he resigned and took the Arkansas job.
He didn't even address -- team.
Face to face he left notes laminated four -- notes in each player's locker and left town for Fayetteville.
So when I think the -- and a black -- I really think that.
-- substantial evidence points in that direction.
Do you think whether it's University of Arkansas are.
Let's say two years from now Bob -- move on -- less miles moves on is this going to change hiring across college football in terms of taking a little closer look at the human being your hiring and not just the football skills of a particular coach.
I believe it's gonna take character and integrity to another level especially in the coaching ranks -- mean.
Your molding young men like you said young men into better human beings and with Bobby Petrino.
The results oftentimes don't justify the means and the funny part about the whole situation is that if he would've come clean.
And if you would have told Jeff Long the athletic director right off the bat.
About the inappropriate relationship bout just good -- being involved I believe -- still be the coach at Arkansas.
That is it -- so you think bottom line your coach can survive in the of this if he's up front that you meet also with the police department because he clearly.
Wanted no one to call the police and lied to them initially.
Not reporting that Jessica the -- was with them on a motorcycle so it's really the cover up.
Not the actual I believe it was the cover up what's the old adage that truth will set you free.
I believe the truth would have said Bobby Petrino -- -- giving him a second chance at Arkansas.
If you would have been 100% honest.
From the very get go with the police.
With his boss with all university officials I found fascinating story in the Wall Street Journal today.
That -- just told the the story of the Jacksonville Jaguars and out of the first NFL team now.
Who when they bring in a free agent on a free agent visits starting this year and last they want the player's wife to come.
Because they have determined that how old player is as a husband as a man is.
Going to be very indicative of how he is is a football player and teammate.
I wonder if this is something you'll start seeing across the league and and perhaps even in college football when they hire new head coach in terms of judging character I think -- -- there definitely is a nexus between -- and treats.
His wife for his mother in effect my own wife told me.
-- the fact that you have a great relationship with your mother makes me feel very good about getting involved -- yeah because it shows -- shows me how you gonna treat me down the line.
Maybe that's why my wife wasn't worried either.
