Jessica Dorrell Placed On Paid Administrative Leave By Arkansas

All three Arkansas Razorbacks athletic department participants in the Bobby Petrino scandal appear to have now been cleared from the offices. Petrino was fired, Jessica Dorrell's fiancee Josh Morgan is no longer listed among the school's coaches, and Dorrell herself is now on paid administrative leave, the Associated Press reports:

University spokesman Steve Voorhies confirmed Dorrell's leave Friday morning, saying the school would issue no more details because the situation is a personnel matter.

Dorrell was hired over 158 other applicants and paid $20,000 by Petrino. Her salary remains $55,735. Since September, she and Petrino exchanged thousands of text messages and several hours worth of phone calls. Their inappropriate relationship was uncovered after Petrino was found to have lied about her presence in his motorcycle wreck two weeks ago.

She's a former Razorbacks volleyball player and fundraiser.
