Bobby Petrino out at Arkansas

Update (8:03): Schad is continuing to be ahead of this story before the press conference gets underway, reporting Arkansas believes Petrino "knowingly deceived and acted inappropriately."

Update 2 (8:34) Long says Jessica Dorrell received $20,000 in cash from Petrino and did not disclose it to the department, and also that Petrino chose her from 159 applicants for the position.

Update 3 (8:41) Long says Petrino was fired with cause and, contrary to earlier rumor, there were no negotiations in regard to how Petrino may keep his job.

Update 4 (8:47) When asked how long Petrino's relationship with Dorrell lasted, Long stated "a significant amount of time."
