Report: Petrino out as Arkansas coach
Fayetteville, AR (Sports Network) - The University of Arkansas has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday night at 8:15 p.m. (et), at which time, it is being reported by multiple sources, the school will announce the dismissal of embattled head football coach Bobby Petrino.
Arkansas placed Petrino on paid leave last Thursday after a police report showed a 25-year-old female employee was a passenger on the football coach's motorcycle when it crashed on April 1.
Petrino, 51, crashed near the town of Crosses in Madison County -- about 23 miles southeast of Fayetteville.
Though his family released a statement saying he was alone at the time of the crash, the third page of a four-page collision report released Thursday by the Arkansas State Police lists Jessica Dorrell, 25, as riding on the motorcycle with him.
Petrino later acknowledged Dorrell with him at the time of the accident, saying he had "been in constant pain, medicated and the circumstances involving the wreck have come out in bits and pieces."
Dorrell was hired to a position in the Arkansas athletic department last week.
Petrino is 34-17 in four seasons at Arkansas and guided the Razorbacks to an 11-2 mark and a Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State this past season.
