Since being fired by the University of Louisville in November of 2018, former head football coach Bobby Petrino has managed to keep his name out of the spotlight.
Outside of an appearance at the Little Rock Touchdown Club in September and the occasional appearance at college football games where his son in-law coaches, Petrino has laid low for the most part.
That changed over the weekend when the 58-year-old unemployed football coach surfaced on Twitter.
Petrino sent out his first Tweet on Saturday afternoon promoting his new book, “Inside the Pocket: An In-Depth Analysis of the X’s & O’s”.
Excited to be down here in Nashville at the #AFCA2020 Convention promoting my new book "Inside the Pocket: An In-Depth Analysis of the X's & O's".

As you might expect, it didn’t take Louisville fans very long to reach out to Bobby via Twitter.
Very few responses to his first Tweet had anything to do with his book. Most of the responses were from Louisville fans who still haven’t forgiven Bobby Petrino for underachieving with a Heisman trophy winner, seemingly quitting on the program and leaving Satterfield a mess to clean up.
I would rather read, "How to legally steal $14,000,000."

You should rename it “how to get inside the pockets of a university and rob them”. Hope you don’t sell 1 book, and get beat up again
