ESPN’s Joe Schad is reporting that Arkansas’ Bobby Petrino has been fired. Confirmed by Chris Bahn.

Petrino is likely out for failing to tell the full truth to the University when reporting what happened in his motorcycle accident that took place on April 1st. Petrino left out the part about a passenger being on the motorcycle, and more importantly, that passenger was an employee of the University of Arkansas.

Arkansas AD Jeff Long released a statement on the 5th that he would be investigating the incident that involved another Arkansas Athletic Department employee, Jessica Dorrell.

Remember, take all Joe Schad tweets with a grain of salt, but this is likely true.
