The New York Times has this story looking at WKU's hiring of Bobby Petrino as the school's next head football coach. The Times says Monday's hiring of Petrino began a discussion over whether "Western Kentucky had made a Faustian decision to trade its morality for the possibility of on-field success."
As WKU Public Radio reported Monday, athletic director Todd Stewart said Petrino was the number one name on the school's wish list when the head coaching job opened up.
The new head football coach at WKU was met with applause from a room packed with people Monday afternoon. When Bobby Petrino made his way to the podium alongside WKU athletic director Todd Stewart, he was instantly recognized by college football fans in the Bluegrass State and beyond.
