Jessica Dorrell, 25, is the girl at the center of the latest Bobby Petrino scandal. Petrino, former Arkansas Razorbacks head football coach, and Jessica Dorrell were involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, April 1, 2012. Petrino has been accused of an “improper relationship” with Miss Dorrell, as well as hiring her under ill-gotten circumstances and giving her $20,000 – among other things.

Petrino initially led school officials to believe that he was alone on the motorcycle when it crashed. It wasn’t disclosed until four days after the accident that Dorrell — a Razorback football staff employee — was on the motorcycle with Petrino.
“I certainly had a concern about Jessica Dorrell’s name being revealed,” Petrino said in a statement. “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 Director, the Razorback Nation and remain the head coach of the Razorbacks.”
