    After a dismal 0-9 start to the 2012-13 season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have fired Head Coach Greg Schiano and hired former collegiate Head Coach Bobby Petrino.
    Petrino has a proven track record in the collegiate ranks but has a less than stellar reputation.
    Petrino left the University of Louisville job to take over the Atlanta Falcons in 2007. During the 2007 season, Atlanta's star quarterback, Michael Vick, was sent to federal prison for various charges surrounding a dog fighting operation. Petrino left midway through the season to take over the Head Coach position at the University of Arkansas. Many fans saw this as him abandoning the team due to the sudden loss of their franchise quarterback.
    While at Arkansas, Petrino took the Razorbacks to their first BCS bowl in school history but was fired before his 4th, and what could have been his most promising, season after an unfortunate incident with a blonde intern and what is now an infamous motorcycle mishap.
    It seems the Tampa Bay Buccaneers front office were willing to overlook these previous circumstances in hiring the proven winner.
