Louisville has fired coach Bobby Petrino as the cardinals have stumbled into a 2-8 record this season, a source confirmed to ESPN.
Petrino is required to have a $ 14.1 million acquisition of the university which will be paid over the next few years, said the source.
Louisville’s season has fallen under a seven-game loss and a five-game stretch of ACC defeat by at least 18 points, including blow losses to Clemson and Syracuse in the last two weeks.
Yahoo Sports first reported that Petrino had been dismissed.
Bobby Petrino’s last match as Louisville coach will be a 54-23 loss for Syracuse on Friday. John David Mercer / USA TODAY Sports
