Updated: Bobby Petrino placed on administrative leave

Bobby Petrino AP

What began as a one-man motorcycle accident has turned into a full-fledged scandal with Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino.

The result of that scandal — for now — has resulted in Petrino being placed on paid administrative leave while his future with the program rests in the hands of his boss, athletic director Jeff Long.

Long called a press conference at just before 10 p.m. this evening to address the new details surrounding Petrino’s motorcycle accident on Sunday, which include the revelation that a female passenger, UA football employee Jennifer Dorrell, was on the bike during the accident.

Previous statements by both Petrino and UA claimed the coach was the only person involved in the incident. Dorrell was previously a volleyball player for UA and later worked for the Razorbacks Foundation. She was promoted student-athlete development coordinator for football late last month.

In a statement released this evening, Petrino acknowledged a “previously inappropriate relationship”, but didn’t expand much beyond that.

Below is Petrino’s statement in its entirety. Petrino was not present at the press conference and was seen leaving campus earlier this evening.

“The state police report provides an accurate description of my accident, which includes details that had not publicly come to light prior to the report being issued. I regret that I have not publicly acknowledged a passenger on the vehicle. I have been in constant pain, medicated and the circumstances involving the wreck have come out in bits and pieces. That said I certainly had a concern about Jessica Dorrell’s name being revealed. In my press conference, I referred to her simply as “a lady.” My concern was to protect my family and a previous inappropriate relationship from becoming public. In hindsight, I showed a serious mistake in judgment when I chose not to be more specific about those details. Today, I’ve acknowledged this previous inappropriate relationship with my family and those within the athletic department administration.

“I apologize to my wife, Becky, and our four children, Chancellor (David) Gearhart, Jeff Long, the Board of Trustees, University administration, my coaching staff, student-athletes and the entire state of Arkansas. I have been humbled by the outpouring of concern and get well wishes. I apologize to the Razorback Nation for the attention my actions have brought to the University of Arkansas and our program. I will fully cooperate with the University throughout this process and my hope is to repair my relationships with my family, my Athletic Direction, the Razorback Nation and remain the head coach of the Razorbacks.”

That last line will be determined after Long finishes an internal review of the matter. Long said this evening he received a phone call from coach Petrino at around 3:12 this afternoon with “information he had not previously shared. That information was that there was another passenger on the motorcycle” which was identified to be Dorrell.

Long then said he met with Petrino at about 7:15 this evening, during which time Petrino admitted he had not been completely forthcoming with all the information regarding the Sunday accident. At about 8:30, Long explained that he placed Petrino on paid administrative leave until the review is completed. Assistant coach Taver Johnson will be the program’s interim coach.

“We have high expectations for our coaches… certainly I’m disappointed,” Long said. “I brought him [Petrino] here.”

The AD admitted he was “surprised” that Petrino had not been completely forthcoming about the details of the motorcycle accident. Whether that surprise results in Petrino’s termination remains to be seen. There is a part of Petrino’s contract that specifies the coach could be terminated or punished for “engaging in conduct, as solely determined by the University, which is clearly contrary to the character and responsibilities of a person occupying the position of Head Football Coach or which negatively or adversely affects the reputation of the University or UAF’s athletics programs in any way.”

Based on that language, Petrino could have been fired four years ago for the way he left the Atlanta Falcons.

“Trust is important in any relationship,” Long said.

And Petrino has compromised the trust of many on a personal and professional level with this latest lie.

    I have a hard time believing anyone is shocked Bobby Petrino lied about something. Dude is a scum bag. Once a scumbag always a scumbag.

  2. ningenito78 says: Apr 6, 2012 12:02 AM

    I don’t know the U of Arkansas area at all but isn’t is safe to say he’s a total moron driving around on a motorcycle, as probably one of the most recognizable faces in the state, with no helmet on and a 25 year old girl on the back? Well done Coach. That’s the way to get it done.

  3. mrslay1 says: Apr 6, 2012 12:05 AM

    I don’t know the whole story nor does anyone esle at this point. Plenty will try and act like they do but they don’t. As for me and my family we are behind you 110%.

  4. bobulated says: Apr 6, 2012 12:10 AM

    I’m sure this is the very, very, very first time he has ever lied to his wife. That being said he has the Piggies relevant for the first time in years as a Top 5 team. At most he gets a slap on the wrists while having to make a deep, heartfelt (*sniff, sniff*) public apology before asking for mercy from Piggie Nation who will forgive him anything as long as they keep winning.

    Well that speaks volumes about you and your family then. Petrino LIED about Dorrell riding with him, admitted to having an inappropriate relationship, but hey he took Arkie to the Sugar Bowl so all is well.

    =======================================

    That’s some amazing restraint, and officially the first time you’ve declined to speak without knowing the facts. Brava for villifying those who act as though they know the whole story, which I know you’ve never done.

    Seriously though, he’s admitted an inappropriate relationship with a young female subordinate he himself hired a month ago. I know you don’t have much respect for such yankee concepts as laws and policies against sexual harrassment, quid pro quo, and hostile work environments, nor for a coach’s word being worth anything, but surely you can understand that Petrino has admitted to betraying his family, abusing his position, and lying to cover it up.

  9. drewsylvania says: Apr 6, 2012 12:35 AM

    If you admit you don’t know the whole story, why are you supporting him?

  11. gopokes0714 says: Apr 6, 2012 12:40 AM

    @Mrslay1

    First I hope the best for everyone involved.

    I would like to point out that it is ironic, for you of all people, to allude that everyone should hold their judgement until they know the whole story.

    Which since he has admitted to the affair and apologized to his family, it is probably safe to make a few assumptions about his character.

    But you slam and belittle conferences, teams, and players with speculation & opinion. On a daily basis you attack without remorse. You serve unethical & demeaning commentary to incite rage.

    So why should you, Arkansas, or Petrino be sparred any backlash?

  12. pdcooper08 says: Apr 6, 2012 12:46 AM

    What ever Mike Slay, you never cease to amaze me when I read the ignorant things you write. What a homer you are. Ya, he was just out enjoying the country side, riding his favorite bike and minding his own business, when this young lady approached him and asked to feel his gear shifter. Your a moron if you can’t figure this one out. You try to hide who you are, but I fugured you where a Pig’s fan all along.

    Looks like Bobby had a lawyer writing his statements. He wanted to protect his family and this poor little girls rep. Give me a break, you got caught slipping Bobby, now you are going to get whacked.

  13. frug says: Apr 6, 2012 12:47 AM

    If it turns out that Petrino was seeing her before she was hired (and she was hired within the last month) Petrino is toast.

    Even if it turns out that their relationship only began very recently having an affair with a subordinate (and lying to the school about it to boot) would justify dismissal.

    Can you please ban mrslay, John and/or Ben? I have always enjoyed this site in large part because it has been free of the problems that plague so many other sports sites like personal attacks, homophobia and threats of violence.

    Mrslay- good story bro. That’s awesome challenging guys to fights on Internet message boards. Really drives the point home.

  16. bueller101 says: Apr 6, 2012 12:52 AM

    So now we know the real reason he left the Atlanta Falcons for a college program. Class act. His mother must be proud.

  17. thraiderskin says: Apr 6, 2012 12:59 AM

    First and foremost, I am glad you and your passenger are okay. Second, I’m glad you can take responsibility for your failures. Third, you are a good coach, I will not hold anything against you and I enjoyed watching my team play against your’s in the sugar bowl in 2011, thanks for a great game. Fourth, to all you people nailing this guy for “indescretions,” what are you butthurt for? I’m happy that two people didn’t lose their lives over poor decision making and you are crying because he had an apporpiate affair. BOOHOO! D-bags!

  18. stoutfiles says: Apr 6, 2012 1:02 AM

    Cheating on his wife and just announced it to the world. What a scumbag to do that to her and their kids.

    There are more important things than a stupid W-L record, like character. If the fans still want this sleaze back I have no respect for Arkansas fans.

  19. floriocantwrite says: Apr 6, 2012 1:03 AM

    It’s going to be funny tomorrow listening to the local DJ’s! They were soooo impressed on how Paterno handled the press conference and how he answered all questions truthfully! And I’m pretty sure he said at the conference that he had just left the lake that he and his WIFE were at.

    Dude is obviously a cheater and a lying scumbag. Makes me hate this crappy state even more now. Arkansas is seriously good for nothing!!!!

  20. frug says: Apr 6, 2012 1:04 AM

    Being happy that neither party was seriously injured and being angry at an individual who wields enormous power and may have been having an affair with a subordinate are not mutually exclusive reactions to this story.

  21. floriocantwrite says: Apr 6, 2012 1:04 AM

    Hahaha, *PETRINO!!!!

  22. richc111 says: Apr 6, 2012 1:13 AM

    After serious review and taken into all of the information we know we have decided to … hang on a second, need to check one last thing.. what was our record last year… A: 11-2 oh… We stand behind Bobby in this unfortunate incident and look forward to putting this behind us.

  23. ningenito78 says: Apr 6, 2012 1:31 AM

    Thraiderskin- What-The-Fck? That long as hell, 4 point essay you just wrote on a message board…was that real life? That was depressing to read.

  24. getsome99 says: Apr 6, 2012 1:41 AM

    Mrs. Slay,

    You brought up your family you delusional hack. Your boy Bobby is a scumbag and apparently so are you AND your family.

  25. brewcrewfan54 says: Apr 6, 2012 1:43 AM

    Another coach/athletes arrogance costs him. While I’m not saying he should be fired most coaches like to talk to their players about making good choices off the field. Seeing as he has made a very bad one now himself its going to be hard for him to try and teach that same message without being a hypocrite.

  26. chains33 says: Apr 6, 2012 1:52 AM

    Really? A 25 year old girl? Is she that desperate to get laid that she has to go after someone twice her age, whom has a wife and children? And Petrino of all people?

    Leave it to some filthy redneck chick from ARKANSAS!

  27. uga1966 says: Apr 6, 2012 2:13 AM

    Dear Bobby, i am only 69. Would you please send me you diet and vitamin regimen?

  28. bueller101 says: Apr 6, 2012 2:44 AM

    The cost of a new Harley… $12-thousand.
    The cost of bringing 4-star and 5-star athletes to Arkansas… $1-thousand each.
    The cost of wrecking your motorcycle with your college mistress when you are the head coach of the program… Priceless.

  29. dlr4skins says: Apr 6, 2012 3:35 AM

    Yet another reason to wear a “helmet”……..

    Petrino’s situation and mrslay1

  30. tigersgeaux says: Apr 6, 2012 5:07 AM

    With more and more revelations coming out, things are not looking good for Coach Petrino. Lack of wisdom in wearing a motorcycle helmet may be least of his problems now.

    There will be some actions demanded of AD Jeff Long and he will be in hot seat now, with the acting president John Hugh Reynolds, and the Chancellor David Gearhart, breathing down on him. Pressure is now building for AD Long to act quickly (upon conclusion of a reasonable investigation) and shoving the matter under the rug will not sit well with influential boosters.

    I feel bad for Petrino’s wife and children as well as for the true Razorback fans. From Petrino’s own admissions this does not look good for him at all.

  31. florida727 says: Apr 6, 2012 6:55 AM

    When you coach a high profile college football team, all your games are on cable. When all your games on cable, you become very well known and wealthy. When you become very well known and wealthy, attractive young women want you. When attractive young women want you, you pick one. When you pick one, you have an affair. When you have an affair, you get caught and ruin your life. Don’t get caught and ruin your life. Get rid of cable. And upgrade to Direct TV.

  32. starderup says: Apr 6, 2012 7:27 AM

    One last comment. This is ProFootballTalk.com. Putridino is not a pro coach. He tried it, but he wasn’t any good. His only choice was to go back to coaching kids, because he couldn’t coach men. Worthless scum.

    So he lied about cheating on his wife? Sorry to say this, but who cares? This is a personal problem. This is not our problem. He’s not the first man in a position of authority to cheat on his wife and try to cover it up. Won’t be the last. In fact, Arkansas is famous for turning out these dudes.

  35. general74 says: Apr 6, 2012 8:16 AM

    Wow Taver Johnson hasn’t even been through a full spring with Arkansas and he is already head coach. Good for him just another notch on the Ohio State Coaching Tree.

  36. The Boss says: Apr 6, 2012 8:23 AM

    Show him to the door. He’s been a dirt bag for years now, and this just continues to show his true nature.

    We haven’t forgotten what you did to the Falcons, Bobby. Karma is a bitch.

  37. cometkazie says: Apr 6, 2012 8:29 AM

    I am grateful neither the coach nor the assistant were badly hurt.

    That said, I can think of about a half-dozen high profile coaches who had adulterous affairs that became public if not published.

    $**t doesn’t happen. It’s manufactured.

    Why are people being so self-righteous?

    Let’s limit posting to persons who have not had sex outside of marriage.

  38. alligatorsnapper says: Apr 6, 2012 8:55 AM

    cometkazie: Your last line is funny. In that case I will post. Southernpatriots cannot post since two are in the hospital and the remainder of the family are in Appalachia, where even cell phones don’t function unless you climb to the top of the mountain.

    But your post is well taken….”it’s manufactured” is another great line.

    With more revelations coming out about Petrino, this is going to be a scandal which will give and keep giving, particularly during this “off season.” Get us football again and this type stuff will be pushed from the front page.

  39. pdcooper08 says: Apr 6, 2012 8:58 AM

    1972wasalongtimeago: Really, who cares? I guess the AD who’s ass is now under a microscope and having to answer for why his boy lied to him, the popo, University and the world. Do you think the AD doesn’t care about that?

    I’m afraid this won’t be swept under the rug and forgotten. He’s going to pay dearly for this.

    “The ironic thing is we were sitting there in the kitchen, Becky and I, and I had two helmets out. I said, `This one’s going to be really heavy and hot, and then this one makes me look like a cone head. I think I’ll just go with the hat.'”

    Sounds like he was planning on taking two helmets before his wife came into the kitchen.

    Much like the Saints bounties, it’s both funny and sad to see the few homers who can see no wrong when it’s “their” team but would scream from the mountaintops for firings and lifetime bans if any opposing team did anything even half as bad. Are these people truly that blind, or on some level do they realize they are morally corrupt?

    I will say something for him, next to Jerry Sandusky, You, and Gregg Williams, Petrino doesn’t seem too nefarious.

    The hypocrisy is in you criticizing anyone else from another school, idiot.

    I’m not pretending the nickname doesn’t exist. I’m pointing out that using it as a pejorative, as you are attempting to do, is misguided at best, but that’d be par for the course for someone of your particular fanbase.

    The hypocrisy is in you criticizing anyone else from another school, idiot.

    As for the “teasip” reference, I’m merely using the common nickname for you chumps who went to UT. Amusing that you pretend that the nickname doesn’t exist, insult or not.
    ==============================
    Why is it hypocritical? It would be hypocritical if I defended Bryant despite criticizing Petrino, but you ought to know pretty goddamn well that’s not the case.

    I’m not pretending the nickname doesn’t exist. I’m pointing out that using it as a pejorative, as you are attempting to do, is misguided at best, but that’d be par for the course for someone of your particular fanbase.

    Using it as a pejorative is “misguided”? I’m using it as it is commonly used, to refer to alums of UT. Par for the course for sensitive wimps like you to take it in a negative manner and cry about it.

    And the hypocrisy isn’t you defending or not defending Bryant, but the mere fact that you act as if your school has never had a similar controversy like the Petrino situation. Par for the course for University of Texas pompous arses like yourself.

    Could any of you prudes out there explain how Bill Bellichek can get sued by some guy for having an affair with his wife and not get fired? Can you explain why it’s OK for Rex Ryan to post nude photos of his wife on a website and likes to watch guys “fill her 3 holes” and not get fired.

    What Petrino did was not much different than what Bellichek and Rex Ryan did. The major sin Petrino did was to lie to the University.

    You’re using a word almost no one but aggies use to refer to UT alumni, and the point is that it doesn’t even make any sense, just like anything aggies do. But if using it makes you feel better about nut-crunch lines, dirt farming, and diddling sheep, have at it.

    Wimps like me, huh? Nice internet talk, tough guy/girl/whatever.
