Bobby Petrino Suspended: Arkansas Coach Admits To 'Inappropriate Relationship'

They say what goes around comes around. And for the Atlanta Falcons fan base it took awhile, but karma finally found their former head coach Bobby Petrino, who was placed on administrative leave late Thursday night after admitting to an "inappropriate relationship" with a 25-year-old athletic department employee, Jessica Dorrell, that he initially tried to cover-up.

On Sunday, Petrino and Dorrell were involved in a motorcycle crash, which featured Dorrell riding as a passenger and being taking away in a separate vehicle before Petrino was driven to the hospital. Initially, Petrino, who wore a neck brace at a press conference Tuesday, made no mention of a passenger.

Trying his best, the married Petrino tired to sweep the incident under the rug, however, as more reports about Petrino and the engaged Dorrell leaked out, it became apparent that the University of Arkansas and its athletic director, Jeff Long, had to take action.
