Bobby Petrino was only at Western Kentucky for 13 months, but apparently he had a huge impact in a short time. WKU athletic director Todd Stewart made a statement to the media before Petrino was officially announced as Louisville’s new head coach Thursday.
Petrino went 8-4 in his only year with the Hilltoppers, but did not earn a bowl game.
Statement via WKUSPORTS.COM:
“President Ramsey, Tom Jurich and the University of Louisville have made a tremendous hire, and I wish Bobby, Becky and the Petrino family much success and happiness in Louisville. Coach Petrino displayed a tireless work ethic throughout his 13 months as our head coach and was completely devoted to WKU football from the day he was hired. Our program benefited greatly from his presence, knowledge and leadership. He will do a terrific job leading the Louisville football program as they move into the Atlantic Coast Conference, and I am also confident he will take an already outstanding program to even loftier heights.”
