Don’t lie to your boss, screw a new employee you just hired, and attempt to lie to the police.

Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino was fired on Tuesday for lying about his relationship with a 25-year-old female football program employee, ESPN reported.

The network cited multiple sources, and the University of Arkansas scheduled a press conference for 7:15 local time Tuesday.

Petrino was put on paid leave last week after he didn’t tell his boss right away that Jessica Dorrell, a former Arkansas volleyball player, was riding with him during an April 1 motorcycle accident. The 51-year-old Petrino, who is married with four children, also admitted to an inappropriate relationship.

What a weirdo. I remember when he snuck out of Atlanta in the middle of the night (left the Falcons coaching position). Good riddance in ATL, too.

He’ll be the new head coach at UTEP within two years and likely an assistant at a BCS school next season.

hehehehe!

I feel very sorry for his family, but the jerk gets what he deserves.

I'm VERY surprised that the UofA put ethics over winning football games.

Let's see, Head coach fired, girl friend not fired, but can't leave her house because fans are blaming her for destroying Arkansas football, Swimming coach is going to have to leave because he can't hold his head up, Arkansas State Trooper will be fired for helping in the cover up.

If I was Patrino’s wife I would dump his sorry butt somewhere in the Boston Mountains.

As a Razorback fan, I have to agree with this decision and move on. The question is, what now? We need integrity and honor restored. We need to bring Barry Switzer out of retirement.

He thought the state police would cover up for him like they did for years for Clinton. Too many ways to find out now without the so-called news media.

bert, he's a jerk, and he would have screwed Razorback Nation over just as soon as the going got tough.

You're better off without this weasel. What an ass!

Surely you jest?
Maybe Joe Gibbs would like to come out of retirement once again and be the head coach for the hogs instead of an assistant.

Bobby’s bank account made him irresistble.

He’s making $3.7 million per year.

I found this little gem also:

“The contract also includes an $18 million mutual buyout clause in 2011-12 should the university fire Petrino”

Violation of moral turpitude rider in the contract, negates the buyout!

Hope that 25 year old was worth approx $20,000,000.00.

Dummy!

Arkansas - lying, cheating, womanizing - hmmm, sounds familiar. Petrino was just carrying on the tradition!

Head coach fired, girl friend not fired, but can't leave her house because fans are blaming her for destroying Arkansas football,

There have been student protests in previous days by students telling the U not to dismiss him. He is a winning coach. They would gladly look the other way. That is how UA football is seen in nwArkansas.

It is somewhat surprising that they fired him -- but it was for the cover up, not the affair -- he lied to the U about their relationship.

Here, this might cheer you up...

Last Tuesday President Obama got off the helicopter in front of the White House - carrying a baby piglet under each arm.

The squared-away Marine guard snapped to attention, saluted and said: "Nice pigs, sir."

The President replied: "These are not pigs. These are authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and I got one for Nancy Pelosi."

The squared-away Marine again snapped to attention, salutes and said, "Excellent trade, Sir."
