Will Petrino’s ousting affect Tyler Wilson’s future?

Will Petrino’s ousting affect Tyler Wilson’s future?

Hyped by on April 11, 2012 Website:

In case you live under a rock; Bobby Petrino has been ousted as head coach of the Arkansas Razorbacks as of late last night. Petrino’s motorcycle accident turned affair cover-up with a 25-year old female staffer is well documented. What were interested in is how this affects the NFL prospects, most notably Tyler Wilson on this talented team. Petrino leaves behind him an 11-2 team that returns a Heisman contending quarterback, a top running back talent returning from injury, and eight defensive starters. For all intents and purposes this was to be Arkansas’ year to compete with the likes of LSU, Alabama, and Florida.
Tyler Wilson’s magical 2011 season had some pining for him to enter the 2012 NFL Draft and be selected in the top ten back in January. Wilson spurned the NFL to return to Petrino’s pro-style offense for his senior season. The 6’3”, 230-pound Heisman contender passed for 3,638 yards with 24 TD’s and just six INT’s in 2011 following in the footsteps of Ryan Mallett.
