Re: Roy Exum: The Petrino Lesson
As a coach and teacher, I come in daily contact with hundreds of students. I try to set a great example of the way to do things and how one should act.
It is sad that when people get power then they think they are above the law. I wish more coaches would read this article and see how doing wrong things can affect so many people.
The lesson is correct, people should never lie and never get themselves involved in some type of situation that can ruin their career and life. As coaches, we do not need to be around players if we are living a life like Bobby Petrino, a life of lies and hurt. People look up to coaches and what they do and stand for on a daily basis.
Bobby Petrino isn’t the only coach to be like this and he won’t be the last, but he is the latest and it kills me to hear it when this stuff happens.
