No formal contact from Louisville to speak to Bobby Petrino
Bobby Petrino would owe Western Kentucky $1.2 million if he leaves.
Western Kentucky has not been formally contacted regarding Bobby Petrino by Louisville, a source told CBSSports.com on Monday.
It seems the former Louisville coach is definitely in play if for no other reason than Petrino hasn't shot down speculation. Former players have voiced their support for the former Louisville coach. Petrino went 8-4 with the Hilltoppers this year two seasons after he left Arkansas in disgrace.
Western Kentucky AD Todd Stewart structured Petrino's contract so that if he leaves after this season, the school would actually make money from his departure. Petrino would have to pay Western Kentucky $1.2 million. He currently earns approximately $850,000.
Other names that have been mentioned at Louisville: Arizona coach Rich Rodriguez, Michigan State defensive coordinator Pat Narduzzi and Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris.
