Paul Petrino reportedly on move to Illinois

It looks like the Petrino brothers are parting ways.

Paul Petrino, Arkansas' offensive coordinator and receivers coach, is expected to join Ron Zook's staff at Illinois. JC Shurburtt of ESPN's Scouts Inc. and The (Champaign) News-Gazette have both reported that Illinois is set to name Petrino as offensive coordinator.

Petrino is the younger brother of Arkansas head coach Bobby Petrino. They've worked together since 2003 when Bobby Petrino was named the head coach at Louisville.

At Illinois, Paul Petrino would step in for Mike Schultz, one of four assistants fired last week. The Illinois job would also be a chance for Paul Petrino to call plays, whereas Bobby Petrino calls his own plays at Arkansas.
