Petrino: Administrative Leave

Recommended Posts


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP)—Arkansas put football coach Bobby Petrino on paid leave Thursday after he failed to disclose he had been riding with a female employee half his age when his motorcycle skidded off the road over the weekend.

Petrino apologized and said he had been concerned about protecting his family and keeping an “inappropriate relationship from becoming public.”

“I will fully cooperate with the university throughout this process and my hope is to repair my relationships with my family, my athletic director, the Razorback Nation and remain the head coach of the Razorbacks,” he said in a statement issued by the university.

Athletic director Jeff Long announced the decision at a late-night news conference and said he had no timeline in determining the 51-year-old Petrino’s future with the Razorbacks.

“I’m at the beginning of the review. I don’t know what I’m going to find,” Long said.


Not looking good for Petrino for his job or marriage.

Arkansas State Police

are taking another look at the motorcycle crash involving football coach

Bobby Petrino


Authorities say they want to know how State Police Captain Lance King wound up meeting Petrino after the crash at an intersection in Fayetteville. King, who provides security for the coach during the season, then drove Petrino to a hospital.

Getting a bit more messy. Not just an affair....he hired her...and she engaged to another university athletic department staff. Tried to coverup. And he lied.

Bet the Hogs have a new coach.

That broad wasn't all that.

Anyways, he was too careless with his sidepiece. Shouldn't have been riding around with her like that out in the open. Oh well, guess this is karma.
