BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — The Arkansas football program may be searching for a new head coach soon after Athletic Director Jeff Long put current coach Bobby Petrino on paid leave after he failed to admit he had been riding with a 25-year old Razorback football employee Jessica Dorrell when his motorcycle skidded off the road over the weekend.
Petrino is married and has four children.
Petrino apologized and said he had been concerned about protecting his family and keeping an “inappropriate relationship from becoming public.”
Long is currently conducting a review that could lead to a suspension or firing.
