Per ESPN, Petrino will receive $1.35 million in 2024 and $1.5 million over the following two seasons.

Petrino, 62, spent the 2023 season at Texas A&M as the offensive coordinator for Jimbo Fisher, who was fired on Nov. 12.

Petrino also has been a head coach in the college ranks at Louisville (2003-06, 2014-18), Western Kentucky (2013), and FCS program Missouri State (2020-22). He went 3-10 as head coach of the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons in 2007.
