Well, not really the MIDDLE of hte season.. but before the season was over.. i think there were 3 games left. I partially blame Arkansas for that move.. i am sure they gave him an ultimatum... still he could have showed some class and said, i wont do that..

Well Petrino left with only a few games in the season so he should have explained why he left.

For worst NFL coaches in Packers history, many Packer fans would point to Bart Starr and Forest Gregg. Does anybody remember Lindy Infante? He was so awful which was why he was fired after 1991 after spending four seasons with the Packers. Ray Rhodes was awful as well. He only lasted one year before getting fired. I know he led the Packers to the playoffs until his firing after 2005 but I think Mike Sherman is pretty overrated.

Forrest Gregg might have been bad with the Packers but he led the Bengals to a Super Bowl appearance and in IMO, that excludes him from any WORST COACHES list..

Kush contended that Smith had been loafing. Smith, who appeared in three games as a rookie, argued that he was slowed by a hamstring injury that he thought the coach knew about. In any case, Smith retaliated by confronting Kush in the team dining room and dumping a container of root beer over his head.

Kush's overall record in the NFL is 11-28-1, in the USFL 8-10, the CFL 11-4-1, and in college 176-54-1. Kush, along with several other successful college/unsuccessful NFL coaches, was a great college coach but an awful NFL head coach.

Speaking of the Houston Oilers, since Bill Peterson went 1-18 with the Oilers, Ed Biles was another head coach for the Oilers to go unsuccessful. His overall record in the NFL is 9-22 though I do think Peterson is worse than Biles though. Hugh Campbell was pretty bad with the Oilers as well. I do think most the Houston Oilers coaches were pretty bad, especially with Bill Peterson being the worst of them. Ed Hughes spent only one year for the Oilers in 1971 before getting fired by Oilers owner Bud Adams at the time, who later continued to own the franchise when they relocated to Tennessee. Hughes' overall record in the NFL is 4-9-1. The Oilers started to improve when Jerry Glanville came to town until 1990 when Jack Pardee came in until 1995 when Jeff Fisher came in.

Mike Riley is another example of great colleges coaches that were horrible NFL coaches. He was the head coach for the San Diego Chargers before Marty Schottemheimer. Riley's overall record in the NFL is 14-34. He was okay in the Canadian Football League as his overall record in the CFL is 40-32. His overall record in college is currently 99-87 as he is currently with Nebraska. Riley was bust for San Diego. Bud Wilkinson was pretty terrible for the Cardinals as he is also one of those great college coaches that were busts in the NFL. His overall record for the St. Louis Football Cardinals is 11-21. He was terrific with Oklahoma. Dick MacPherson for the Patriots was pretty bad. His overall record is 8-24. Dan Revine coached the Packers from 1971-1974 and his overall record is 25-27-4. After Vince Lombardi left the Packers I do believe that the coaches for the Packers were really bad until Mike Holmgren and QB Brett Favre came in. After spending six years with UCLA Tommy Prothro coached the Los Angeles Rams and the San Diego Chargers. His overall record in the NFL 35-51-2. Gene Stallings for the Cardinals was pretty bad too. His overall record is 23-39-1. In his final year for the Cardinals he went 1-11 before being fired from the team. Darryl Rogers was horrible too as his overall record is 18-40 in the NFL. He coached the Lions in the 1980s. The only successful coach in Lions history that I know off was Wayne Fontes. He nearly went to the Super Bowl that year but fell short to Washington. Those are all of the successfull college coaches that haven't been mentioned that were bad NFL coaches. In fact there are only three coaches to win a college football championship and a Super Bowl. They are Barry Switzer, Jimmy Johnson, and Pete Carroll. No other college coach has done that.

The thing is Gregg's overall record is 75-85-1. He has a losing record overall.
