Today Bobby Petrino admits to having an inappropriate relationship with a football staff member, Jessica Dorrell, after a motorcycle wreck that injured both parties. Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long put Petrino on paid leave today after discovering that he initially lied about being alone on the motorcycle when he lost control around a turn.
Petrino’s statements made to police after the accident were honest and included Dorrell’s involvement; however, he publicly lied about the relationship with his staffer for fears of career and familial ruin. The father of four and husband to wife Becky will fully cooperate with the University through their investigation.
All I can say is: Insult to Injury.
