    Not a bad idea considering next season is an all-in year. He could be the HC in waiting ;)! He has an ability to bring in the type of recruits needed as well as flip the O. He'll need to be sized with a monitoring bracelet and be inside by 10pm.

    Muschamp will be here next year and I would love to have Petrino as OC but isn't he a head coach a Western Kentucky? Would he go from HC at smaller school to OC at an SEC school? I guess that is the question.

    Doubtful Petrino would come as he needs to rehab and demonstrate that he is capable of taking any prohram and making them successful. He 7-4 hardly a resume that is compelling.

    No way would either WM or JF bring in Petrino as OC. Why would they want what would amount to a HCIW on the staff?

    a new offensive coordinator will fix nothing. the new hire will be foleys call and hire. muschamp will be regulated to foleys water boy in his own mind. if you think we are inept now in all phases of the game, just wait until next year. i like muschamp, but his offensive philosophy over the last 3 seasons has killed any good will he achieved with last seasons success. a change is for the better. for foley and the gator nation.

    Ya know, Petrino as OC doesn't sound all that bad actually. I want no part of him being head coach though.

    The team was 7-6 last year. He has an opportunity to go 9-4 this year. Not bad for a program that moved to FBS in 2009.

    No way in hell would Petrino come here under Muschamp. How many coaches actually like Muschamp? I've heard that a great majority of coaches can't stand Muschamp and wouldn't work for him. You think Petrino is going to take a step down when everyone knows he's a better coach? The only reason he would come would be to wait for Champ to be fired. Not a good situation.

    He would need ego-stroking money and a long term contract. That's not going to happen because it only digs deeper this hole Foley has unearthed.

    Just watch Muschamp on the sidelines. He's a madman. The results speak for themselves. You've had two top notch OC's in Weis and Pease that have crumbled under his thumb. Merely a coincidence? I think not. Weis, for all his faults, was the freakin OC in New England.

    Great, so Muschamp can take credit for a turnaround next year.

    Petrino could win two MNC's at Western Kentucky and it wouldn't matter to some of the posters here. He cheated on his wife and for that, he should ever be banished from the SEC coaching fraternity.

    You know what happens when you assume. Not saying it's not true but I'm curious where someone "heard" this, that's all. Sometimes we work hard to make things fit our narrative.

    You're assuming it's not true though. The fact is, Weis left after one year to coach at lowly Kansas. The disarray on the sidelines and on the field should tell you everything isn't hunky dory. No coach is necessarily fun to work for, but that gets magnified when there is mass confusion on the field and losses continue piling up.

    I've heard 1 person I knew within the organization say that it is not pleasant to work for him (this person left his alma mater to go to another school).

    I dont see anyway that a coach as successful as Petrino would coach under someone who:

    A. He has more experience than
    B. He is better than

    I like how we are trying to shoehorn all these fixes to accommodate Muschamp when the major problem is obvious.

    Bringing in Petrino as OC would be like installing new granite counter tops in a house that's falling through a sinkhole.

    Petrino as head coach. He is a better head coach than Muschamp
