Be still, beating Hog hearts

Posted By on Wed, May 5, 2010 at 12:23 PM

Razorback message boards have been popping with the news that head football coach Bobby Petrino's $2.2 million mansion on Bridgewater Lane in East Fayetteville was listed for sale on the Lindsey and Associates website. (Oops, since I made my inquiry this morning, the photo spread has been removed from the website.) But it's nice (no asking price was given) -- 8,400 square feet of living area, the assessor says; six BR/six BA; three acres, pool, housewide wired entertainment system with storage for 400 movies playable in any TV, etc.)

I asked Kevin Trainor, associate athletic director for media relations, about it. It wouldn't appear that Petrino is planning a getaway. Trainor's response:

Coach Petrino owns a home here in Fayetteville and he still owns a home in Atlanta. His home in Atlanta has been on the market for some time and with the market being what it is he would like to sell at least one of the homes.
Another factor on the timing is that with his daughter is headed to college this fall. His other children are older and at a point where they have their own residences.
