I honestly don't know enough about him to call him a weasel. Nick Saban's a weasel (imo). There have sure been a lot more washouts than successes
among college coaches going to the NFL. Lou Holtz, Butch Davis, Bud Wilkinson, Daryl Rogers, Frank Kush, Steve Spurrier, Pete Carroll, Dennis
Erickson (off the top of my head) all had less than great NFL success.
Petrino seems to be to me, a guy who's just trying to maximize his chance for success. As the esteemed Doctor said, things in Atlanta are much
different than he anticipated them to be when he took the job.
Look at My Man Cam Cameron in Miami. He sucked Big Time at our alma mater, Indiana University. I guess that was a contrarian hire - if he sucked
that bad in college, he'd have to be a great pro coach.
Latest rumor I've heard is that he might be in line for the Michigan job. Which would astound me.
[Edit to correct Lou Saban to Nick Saban. Gawd I'm old.]
