Petrino has rubbed many people wrong in football, pro and college, since his departure from Louisville. But this donation at least shows he's not all bad. The new again Louisville head coach is set to make reportedly $3.5 million a year so his recent contribution totals over 28 percent of his current annual pay.
I'm sure this report won't sway the many detractors of the coach, but it's always worth noting when someone gives to a good cause. Petrino is staying out of trouble so far off-the-field since his last debacle at Arkansas and appears to be making an attempt to move in the right direction socially; now we'll see if he can continue his on-the-field success at Louisville where he garnered a 41-9 record during his first stint.
"Kosair Children's Hospital serves children throughout Kentucky and Southern Indiana, making it a true asset to this state and region," said Kelsey Petrino Scott, Executive Director of the Petrino Family Foundation. "The number of children needing emergency and trauma care is just staggering. Providing this level of care requires resources such as specialists to provide the care and the equipment that will fit the smallest infant to the adult-sized teenager. We're happy we could help ensure that this care continues."
