Bobby Petrino emotional, regretful
By ESPN.com staff
ESPN's Joe Schad has the story on former Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino's first interview since being fired in April:
HELENA, Mont. -- Bobby Petrino, speaking for the first time since being fired in April by the University of Arkansas following a motorcycle accident and subsequent revelation of an affair with a woman who worked for him, said he wakes up each morning wondering why he did what he did.
Breaking down several times in an interview with ESPN near the childhood home where his parents still reside, Petrino opened up about the fallout from his relationship with a 25-year-old former Arkansas athlete he hired into the football office.
The former coach was emotional while discussing a conversation with his parents, Robert and Patricia.
"How could I put what we had in jeopardy?" Petrino said. "This is what I wake up early every morning thinking about, what I lay in bed thinking about. Why?"
