Petrino to Arkansas

On the same days that insiders were reporting that Auburn DC Will Muschamp was headed to Fayetteville, SportsCenter just announced that Bobby Petrino resigned from his head coaching position with the Atlanta Falcons to take the Arkansas job.

Here's the story on ESPN's site. Looks like Falcon fans picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue...

**UPDATE: 12/12: And now that it's official, expect a lot more pieces like this one and this one questioning the integrity of Petrino who always seems to have one foot out the door. Hog fans can take solace knowing he'll never land another NFL job, but I can't imagine that he views the Arkansas job as a final destination.

Why should anyone believe he'll be there more than 1 year? He phoned in his resignation at 5:45, he's had 13 jobs since 1983, and in 4 years at Louisville, he lost 45 signees (either through grades or kicking them off his team... that's nearly 50% of his signees.
