I will assume when the Hot Tamales didn’t work, Petrino just went with the straight cash homie. After being caught in a web of lies Petrino decided to come clean with his affair.
This is what he told the AD.
At one point last October, Petrino and Dorrell were sitting in a car, eating lunch and talking and ”she said are you going to kiss me,” according to Long’s notes of his April 10 conversation with Petrino. He then wrote: ”Kissed on lunch outing.”
It’s unclear when the relationship turned sexual, but Long’s notes seem to indicate the two decided they should be only friends sometime in early February after exchanging more than 4,300 text messages and nearly 300 phone calls, according to his business cellphone records. Dorrell was hired in late March, just a few days before she and Petrino were in a motorcycle accident that exposed their relationship and led to his ouster.
The notes suggest Long was skeptical that the affair was truly over, as Petrino has claimed.
Petrino was fired for failing to disclose his relationship with Dorrell, the former Arkansas volleyball player whom he hired last month without disclosing his conflict of interest or the fact he had once paid her $20,000 that she used to buy a car. The payment, Long wrote, could make the school ”vulnerable to sexual harassment” lawsuit.
The 25-year-old Dorrell referred to ”5-6 gifts” during her interview with Long, according to the notes. There are references to candy gifts and ”tamales,” possibly the candy Hot Tamales. Long also talked with Josh Morgan, an athletic department employee who was and may still be Dorrell’s fiance.
I want a sit down interview with Dorrell’s fiancé because either he was in on the scam or he is a idiot.
Either way, I am more interested in what he has to say than Dorrell or Petrino.
