Bobby Petrino given new seven-year contract by Arkansas

The University of Arkansas and Bobby Petrino have agreed upon a new seven-year contract that will extend through the 2017 season.

The new agreement will supersede the remaining four years of the original employment agreement and will run through December 31, 2017.

In his three seasons at Arkansas, Petrino has lifted the program to unprecedented levels of success including leading the Razorbacks to a 10-2 regular season and the program’s first berth in the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) in 2010.

Arkansas will be making its first BCS bowl appearance on January 4, when the #8 Razorbacks take on #6 Ohio State Buckeyes in the Allstate Sugar Bowl in New Orleans, Louisiana. Petrino will become only the third coach in NCAA Football to lead two different teams to a BCS bowl game. In 2007, he led the Louisville Cardinals to a victory in the Orange Bowl.

As part of the new agreement, Petrino will receive an increase in his average annual compensation to a total of $3.36 million a year during the length of the agreement. The increase to Petrino’s compensation package will be paid with athletic department-generated revenues and private gift support and will not include any taxpayer dollars or student fees. The new agreement will also expand the non-compete clause in Coach Petrino’s current contract to include all Southeastern Conference institutions, rather than being limited to western division schools only.

Coach Petrino is excited about the new agreement. “I am excited to express my commitment to the University of Arkansas. Chancellor Dave Gearhart and Jeff Long have been tremendous in terms of their support and I appreciate the positive energy the fans have demonstrated. I look forward to continuing to dedicate myself to leading the Razorback football program.”
