It didn’t take long for Bobby Petrino to release a statement regarding his employers decision to rename their football stadium.
“In light of recent events, I am pleased that our university has made the correct decision to remove “Papa John’s” from the name of our stadium. Our football team and our city all promote environments of inclusiveness. The university’s quick action to rename our stadium has only reaffirmed its commitment to such inclusiveness. I applaud their decision.”
Well said, Bob.
