The last time Bobby Petrino was coaching in the great state of Kentucky he was taking the Louisville Cardinals to Orange and Big East championships. He has had great success being a head coach in college and even with the scandal he had before the 2011 season, the Hilltoppers of Western Kentucky are giving him another chance. WKU is coming off a 7-6 season which ended in a close loss in the schools first bowl appearance as a FBS team.
