Bobby Petrino’s Buyout At Louisville Is $10M


The Louisville Cardinals aren’t going to play the jilted scorned girlfriend a second time around.  Knowing that there new coach has a wandering eye, and a penchant for change, the Cardinals will hit Petrino and his next employer where it hurts.

Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports is reporting that Louisville placed a $10 million buyout clause in Petrino’s contract just in case the Florida job, or some other prestigious, and pretty big time program comes calling.

In comparison the Houston Texans just coughed up $6.5 million to get Bill O’Brien out of his Penn State contract.  I can’t see any top university paying $10 million for Petrino.
