Sources: Bobby Petrino out as coach (1915hrs CST News Conference) ^ | 10 APR 12 | news services

Posted on 04/10/2012 5:01:19 PM PDT by DCBryan1

Bobby Petrino will not return as head football coach at Arkansas, multiples sources have told's Chris Low.

The university has called an 8:15 p.m. ET press conference at which time athletic director Jeff Long will announce Petrino will not be back.

The 51-year-old Petrino was put on paid leave last week after he didn't tell his boss right away that a 25-year-old female football program employee was riding with him during an April 1 motorcycle crash. Petrino, who is married with four children, also admitted to an inappropriate relationship.

Also on Monday, a person familiar with the investigation confirmed to The Associated Press that Petrino's "previous inappropriate relationship" was with Jessica Dorrell, the former Arkansas volleyball player with whom Petrino was riding with during his motorcycle crash on a rural two-lane road southeast of Fayetteville.

Petrino was noticeably vague in the wording about the relationship in his statement last Thursday, and the person spoke on the condition of anonymity.

Long said in a late-night news conference Thursday that he didn't hear about the 25-year-old Dorrell until Petrino called him that afternoon, minutes before a police report was released that disclosed her presence at the accident.

Dorrell, who did not return a call seeking comment, was hired March 28 by Petrino as the student-athlete development coordinator after serving as a fundraiser with the Razorback Foundation. She is in charge of organizing the recruiting process for the football team, including initial eligibility for each incoming player.

actually, this is FRONT PAGE news in the south, and breaking news in the sports world.

I'm in Alabama - and it ain't FP here. We ain't the SEC and this ain't a sports forum.

Then why didnt you put the other posts after mine in chat today? Looks like a half dozen you missed. Just search for "arkansas" and/or "Patrino".

Also, Please tell jimrob to remove the word "sports" from the culture/society tab, that way it( which I contribute to monthly) doesnt seem unfair and inconsistent.

Thanks. BTW Jim, I'll be in Fresno July for a meeting if you want to grab bfast.

Yeah, they're called facts. You don't lie and mislead your employer. Usually that's worse than the crime. It ultimately led to his termination.

I don't follow sports, so maybe I'm missing something, but since when do you have to report who you're sleeping with, riding with, having lunch with, etc to your employer?

If you are in a position of authority (you may be unfamiliar with that) you have to disclose certain things to your employer. (1) Such as when hiring somebody and you are part of the hiring process, you need to disclose you are boinking candidate B. (2) When you report to your employer that you are unable to come to work because you’ve been in an accident, don’t leave out the part where another employee was with you. In other words, don’t lie and say you were by yourself when you were not. (3) IF your contract has a “morals clause” in it basically anything you do that might put your employer in a bad public light is grounds for termination.

The man cheated on his wife and family. The man’s world is going up in smoke. Predictable.
