Bobby Petrino talks Clemson, Lamar's Heisman attention and the LSU job

Jamie Rhodes-USA TODAY Sports

Bobby Petrino addressed the media on Monday afternoon, fielding questions about the Marshall win last weekend, the upcoming showdown with Clemson, and the growing amount of attention that quarterback Lamar Jackson is receiving.

Petrino was atypically light and upbeat, joking with reporters about a "trap question" regarding the noise level in Death Valley, and making a joke about how far his team would be staying from the stadium.

Things turned a bit more serious when Petrino was asked about the job opening at LSU. Here was his response in full:

"I'm not interested in going anywhere. I'm very fortunate to be the head coach here at the University of Louisville, very happy about that. I'm very glad that I got the support of our athletic director, Tom Jurich. We were able to sit down last year and do a new contract. We're going to expand the stadium. We're coming off one of the greatest crowds and Card Marches that I've been around, and we feel like we've got everything going in the right direction.

"This is the job I want. This is where I'm going to be."
