Paul Petrino (born May 25, 1967) is the head coach of the Idaho Vandals football team. He was hired on December 2, 2012.[1] He is the brother of Bobby Petrino, the head football coach at University of Louisville.

Early life

Paul Petrino was born in Butte, Montana and attended Carroll College in the state capital of Helena. As a student at Carroll, he played quarterback on the school's football team.

Coaching career

Petrino began his coaching career as an assistant coach at Carroll shortly after graduation. He worked as an assistant coach, wide receiver coach, and offensive coordinator at several other schools in the next 20 years, including a short stint with the NFL's Atlanta Falcons in 2007. On December 2, 2012, Petrino was named as the new head coach of Idaho, where he had worked previously as an assistant coach. After the announcement, Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long praised Petrino, saying he would have named Petrino the interim Arkansas head coach if not for his brother Bobby's resignation after a scandal.[2]

Personal life

Petrino is the younger brother of Louisville head coach Bobby Petrino. The brothers have worked together on coaching teams such as Louisville, the Atlanta Falcons, and Arkansas.
