After 10:00 PM Thursday, Arkansas Athletic Director Jeff Long told reporters about a series of events where head football coach Bobby Petrino confessed to a detail he did not previously talk about when describing his motorcycle accident.
When Petrino injured himself, he was with a woman who he had an “inappropriate relationship” with. Petrino is married and the woman works for the university. This afternoon, Petrino admitted to Long about the infidelity. Long then decided to place Petrino on paid administrative leave and will determine his future with the Razorbacks soon.
Petrino released a statement to the media apologizing to Razorback Nation for bringing these distractions to his program.
