Nearly two months after Arkansas fired Bobby Petrino, the former coach is trying to purge himself of all things Razorbacks.

Over the weekend, a Goodwill store in Springdale, Ark., was gifted several of Petrino's personalized Arkansas items, including two sets of golf clubs, some bags and some luggage. The personalized luggage was sold over the weekend, according to the Arkansas Times, and the golf clubs will be auctioned off. The starting bid for the clubs is $150 and the Goodwill store will be collecting bids until June 16.

An Atlanta Falcons jacket, which also belonged to Petrino, is also up for auction.

According to the Arkansas Times, several other Petrino items will hit the store shelves in the coming weeks.

This has to be somewhat cathartic for Petrino. First he sold his lake house (his home is still for sale), then his motorcycle (or what was left of it) and now some personalized Arkansas-related goods. Pretty safe bet he's done with the entire state, but at least he's helping a good cause on his way out.
