What Happened To Jessica Dorrell Arkansas?
Jessica Dorrell gave her resignation from her position at the University of Arkansas.
The resignation came five days after she was given paid administrative leave by the institution when her relationship with the coach, Bobby Petrino came to light. Bobby is a father to four children.
The relationship came into the public eye after an accident that involved both of them. Dorrell had been having an improper connection with the coach when the tragedy occurred on April 1.
Petrino Chose Dorrell For The Position Of Student-Athlete Development Coordinator
Dorrell was selected for the post of student-athlete development coordinator by Petrino, acting in his capacity as head football coach at the time. Out of the whole pool of 159 applications, several people were more qualified for the job.
Petrino was let go because he decided to hire Dorrell rather than one of the other applicants without disclosing the fact that he was romantically involved with her.
Dorrell Was Given A Settlement Amount By The University Of Arkansas
Dorrell was awarded a settlement of $14,000, and authorities from the state of Arkansas had stated back then that there were intentions to reopen the job.
The selection of a new head football coach for the 2012 season or the determination of whether or not to hire an interim coach was the top priority for Arkansas. During the remainder of the spring football season, Petrino's associate head coach, Taver Johnson, served as the team's head coach in an interim capacity.
