It was announced today that Bobby Petrino will not appeal the ruling handed out against him by the University of Arkansas. It was also announced that his mistress Jessica Dorrell will go on paid leave from the Razorbacks athletic department. So now all three figures caught up in this scandal, Dorrell, Dorrell’s fiance Josh Morgan, and Petrino have been removed from the University.
Multiple sources are reporting today’s announcements.
Dorrell continues her silence.
And it’s easy to understand why. The scandal continues to dominate headlines, and there’s plenty of public blowback. Dorrell had to shut down her online wedding guestbook and registry due to defacing. Her fiance Josh Morgan is no longer with the school. The scandal even has it’s own theme song, a YouTube sensation.
