Arkansas places Dorrell on paid leave

Arkansas officials confirmed Friday that Jessica Dorrell has been placed on paid administrative leave.

Dorrell was riding on the back of former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino's motorcycle when he crashed on April 1, a crash that eventually led to Petrino's firing. He and Dorrell had been having an affair, and she was hired late last month as the Arkansas football team's coordinator for on-campus recruiting.

It's hard to imagine any scenario where Dorrell would return in that role given everything that's transpired. She was making $55,735.
