Report: Arkansas considering Bobby Petrino for OC job

Bobby Petrino and Arkansas may be in for an unlikely reunion.

Arkansas is “vetting hiring” Petrino as its next offensive coordinator, ESPN reported Tuesday.

Petrino, 62, spent 2008-11 as Arkansas’ head coach and led them to a Cotton Bowl win in the 2011 season. But he was fired in April 2012 after a motorcycle accident led to the revelation that he was conducting an extramarital affair with an athletic department employee.

Petrino has served as head coach of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons (2007) along with Louisville (2003-06, 2014-18), Western Kentucky (2013) and FCS Missouri State (2020-22).

Arkansas fired offensive coordinator Dan Enos midway into his first season in the role, but Sam Pittman will return after the Razorbacks’ 4-8 campaign. Arkansas finished the season ranked 70th in the country in scoring (26.6 points per game).

Petrino spent the 2023 season as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M, which fired head coach Jimbo Fisher earlier this month. Petrino’s unit still managed to rank 25th in the nation at 34.2 ppg despite the Aggies’ disappointing 7-5 season.
