The 51-year-old Petrino was injured in an April 1 motorcycle
accident. He was put on paid leave last week after admitting he
lied about the presence of the 25-year-old employee, Jessica
Dorrell, who had been riding with him.
Athletic director Jeff Long says Petrino misled him and gave
Dorrell $20,000 at one point, though he said he couldn't disclose
what it was for. He says Petrino was fired "with cause" --
meaning he will not receive a multimillion-dollar buyout -- and
there were no discussions about ways to keep Petrino at Arkansas.
