Source: Bobby Petrino to W. Kentucky

Former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino has agreed to become the next head coach at Western Kentucky, a source close to the coach told ESPN's Joe Schad on Monday.

The Western Kentucky position at the Bowling Green school came open when Willie Taggart left last week for the same role at South Florida.

A source close to Petrino told Schad the coach views Western Kentucky as a program with an excellent administration with vision and a commitment to facilities and other elements necessary to win.

Petrino, 51, was fired by the Razorbacks in April after revelations surfaced after a motorcycle crash that he had hired his mistress to a position in the football department and given her the equivalent of $20,000 in gifts.
