Falcons coach Bobby Petrino has resigned
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported on its Web site that Falcons officials said Petrino phoned in his resignation at about 5:45 p.m. EST Tuesday. He reportedly will not coach the Falcons' remaining three games.
"Bobby Petrino today submitted his resignation as head coach of the Atlanta Falcons," the Falcons' Web site said. "The Falcons will have no further comment until their news conference set for 2 p.m. on Wednesday at the club's Flowery Branch headquarters."
Various media outlets have said Petrino's Falcons contract does not include a buyout clause.
Petrino signed a five-year, $24 million deal with Atlanta in January. His deal with Arkansas, ESPN reported, would be for about $3 million per season. College Football - Petrino expected to fill opening at Arkansas

Well I guess he had enough of the Falcons too. Wonder why he did leave with other falcons fans in the 3rd qtr. LOL

Re: Falcons coach Bobby Petrino has resigned
He is a great college coach. I like him at Louisville. Maybe the Pro game was to much for him.

Or the Mike CON Vick thing pushed him back to college.

Re: Falcons coach Bobby Petrino has resigned
This is excellent news for the Saints. I really think he was dealt a seriously bad hand with the Falcons, but would have turned them around very soon. He is an excellent coach, and I am actually disappointed he gave up on this. The good news is he is gone from Atlanta, I really think he would have turned Atlanta into a top notch team within a couple of years.

Re: Falcons coach Bobby Petrino has resigned
Didn't Blank back his decisions pretty well? During MNF I didn't hear Blank make any disparaging comments while he was being interviewed, if anything it sounded like he supported his decisions as head coach even if he didn't agree with them.

I agree, it's pretty chicken to quit before the regular season's over. Good riddance to bad rubbish, perhaps?

I wonder who Atlanta will bring in to replace him?

Re: Falcons coach Bobby Petrino has resigned
Inevitable... I don't blame him for leaving a tanking franchise who's players have no respect for their coach. If I were him, I would do the exact same thing... though I probably would have finished out the season.

papz thats the thing u would have finished the season.... it will suck if the bring cowher

Re: Falcons coach Bobby Petrino has resigned
I can't see Cowher going there unless they completely blow him away with an offer. It would suck for any well established winning coach to take over a rebuilding franchise. They need to bring in a young guy with a fresh face surrounded by good coordinators imo... kind of like Lance Kiffin in Oakland. Can you imagine how many ugly faces Cowher would make during a season there... disturbing.
