The University of Arkansas says the former mistress of fired football coach Bobby Petrino has resigned her position with the program.
Jessica Dorrell stepped down as the football team’s student-athlete development coordinator. Athletic Director Jeff Long said the decision was mutual and that there are no immediate plans to try to re-fill the job.
The university says Dorrell will be paid approximately $14,000 to settle “all matters between the parties.”
Petrino was fired last week for not disclosing their affair – a conflict of interest – and Dorrell had been put on paid leave. The revelations about their relationship surfaced after they were involved in a motorcycle accident on April.
