Bobby Petrino fired at Arkansas after 4 seasons

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas has fired football coach Bobby Petrino.

Athletic director Jeff Long announced his decision Tuesday night, saying he "knowingly misled" and engaged in reckless behavior during his relationship with a female football employee half his age.

The 51-year-old Petrino was injured in an April 1 motorcycle accident. He was put on paid leave last week after admitting he lied about the presence of the 25-year-old employee, Jessica Dorrell, who had been riding with him.
