08:06 AM ET 12.04 | No, not that Petrino. In a release, Idaho announced that it has hired Paul Petrino as its new head football coach. Petrino will replace Robb Akey, who was the first coach fired during the spinning of the 2012 coaching carousel. It will be Petrino's first head-coaching job at the collegiate level. Sandwiched around a one-year stint as Illinois' offensive coordinator in 2011, Petrino spent four seasons in the same position at Arkansas. He remained on the Razorbacks' coaching staff after his brother, Bobby Petrino, was fired this past spring.

Did they ask if he rides a motorcycle? Likes blondes? Has a propensity to lie to his boss?

Check with LUS on that, he apparently has positive experience in that arena. Guessing the long cold winters had some impact on his selection standards, though, and not in a positive way.
