Hilltoppers Hire Petrino as Coach

December 11th, 2012 - By Charles Choate

The Western Kentucky Hilltoppers have hired controversial coach Bobby Petrino for its program.

Petrino was announced Monday by the university, exactly eight months after being fired at the University of Arkansas for having an “inappropriate relationship” with a woman he hired on the staff.

Petrino is also known for quitting as head coach in the middle of the season with the Atlanta Falcons.

In eight seasons at Louisville and Arkansas, Petrino has posted a 75-26 record.

He reportedly signed a four year contract worth $850,000 a year, but will have to repay the university $1.2 million dollars if he leaves before the contract is complete.
