Johnson said he had a “human reaction, like everyone else” when told of Petrino’s admissions.

“It’s something that happened, and all of us are probably trying to ask questions and things like that, but I think the human element came out,” Johnson said. “Right now, we don’t have any facts, we can’t place any blame. We have to let our administration, who’s done a great job gathering all of the information, take care of that.”

Johnson wouldn’t go as far as to say he was disappointed in Petrino. Nor would he say if he felt his own newly acquired job was in jeopardy.

“I don’t know if that’s a question I can answer right away,” Johnson said. “I don’t know if you ever come to work and you feel that way. The only thing you’re concerned about is coming here and doing the best job you can for the university and our players, more importantly.”
