The rumors started circulating on Friday night and early Saturday morning that Bobby Petrino was close to signing a contract extension that would keep him at Arkansas, and now it seems that it's no longer a rumor.  According to reports on Saturday night, Petrino has signed a seven-year extension that will pay him nearly $25 million.



In another tweet from Marcello, it seems that there's a non-compete clause with the rest of the SEC in Petrino's contract as well.

Whatever the case is, this contract extension is just further proof that having your name mentioned as a candidate anywhere -- whether real or not, with or without mutual interest -- is a best way to get yourself a raise.

Petrino asked for this extension and the huge buyout clause prior to Meyer resigning.  He wanted to secure his spot here, remove any doubt about his commitment to AR and to let the rest of the schools know that they didn't even need to bother.  It's just a coicidence that it came out at the same time as his name being mentioned.  The extension was agreed to about 2 weeks ago but the details were being ironed out.
