SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Bobby Petrino has been hired as the new football coach at Missouri State.
The school said Petrino will be introduced at a news conference Thursday.
He will replace Dave Steckel, who was fired last week after winning just 13 games in five seasons. Petrino has a 119-56 record in 14 seasons at Arkansas, Western Kentucky and Louisville.
He left the Arkansas job after a motorcycle accident exposed an extra-marital affair. Petrino was 36-26 in his second stint with Louisville when he was fired in 2018 in the midst of a seven-game losing streak.
