LOUISVILLE, KY (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says Western Kentucky's Bobby Petrino has accepted an offer to return to Louisville as the Cardinals' football coach.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on Wednesday night on condition of anonymity because the university had not announced its decision.

The University of Louisville Athletic Association, which must approve the hire, meets Thursday morning to review athletic director Tom Jurich's recommendation to have Petrino replace Charlie Strong, who has accepted the Texas job.

Jonathan Blue, a Louisville board of trustee, told AP ''if it's a done deal'' he fully supports the decision.

Petrino, 52, returns to the school he led to a 41-9 record from 2003-06. He has an 83-30 record as a college head coach, but was fired by Arkansas in April 2012 amid scandal.
