LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- UofL Football coach Bobby Petrino and his family announced a new foundation to give back to UofL students and a major gift to Kosair Children's Hospital on Tuesday.

They are creating the Petrino Family Foundation, which will provide a scholarship to students who can't afford to attend UofL as well as a donation toward the purchase of band uniforms for the UofL marching band.

Petrino will also announce a large gift to Kosair Children's Hospital on Thursday.

Petrino's oldest daughter, Kelsey, will serve as the Executive Director of the foundation.

The official announcement is Thursday at 11 a.m. at Kosair Children's Hospital.

Petrino had continued to donate to Kosair even after he left town to coach in Atlanta and Arkansas.
