Bobby Petrino makes a shocking comment as he breaks silence on reunion with Arkansas Football after previous debacle…

Bobby Petrino has broken his silence on his surprising return to Arkansas football after more than a decade, this time as their new offensive coordinator under coach Sam Pittman. Petrino, who previously coached the Razorbacks from 2008-2011, is making a comeback after being fired due to a scandal involving an affair with a team staff member and former Razorbacks volleyball player, which came to light following a motorcycle accident.

Expressing his gratitude for the opportunity, Petrino shared that the reunion is a dream come true for him. He stated, “It’s something I hoped would happen. Wasn’t sure if it ever would, but it is a dream come true to be able to go back to the University of Arkansas and do anything I possibly can to make it right this time.” He credited coach Pittman and athletic director Hunter Yurachek for making it happen.

Petrino acknowledged his excitement about giving back to the people of Arkansas and expressed his inability to change the past but highlighted the positive changes in the team’s culture under Coach Pittman, especially noting their successful 2021 season with a 9-4 record and a bowl game victory.

Following his departure from Arkansas, Petrino had coaching stints at Western Kentucky, Louisville, and Missouri State from 2013-2022. In 2023, he transitioned to the role of offensive coordinator for Texas A&M before returning to the Razorbacks with a fresh start.
