It is unknown when he will return to the team. Or if he will return to the team at all.

Petrino is married with four children and did not mention he had a passenger when he had a news conference on Tuesday. The police report says Petrino was joined by Jessica Dorrell, a former Arkansas volleyball player and Razorback Foundation fundraising advisor.

“When I came out of the ditch, there was a lady there that had flagged down a car,” Petrino said Tuesday, nursing four broken ribs and wearing a neck brace to support a cracked neck vertebra. “The guy that was in the passenger’s seat said, `Get in, we’ll just take you right to the hospital instead of waiting,’ and so I got in the car and they headed toward Fayetteville.”

Dorrell was hired on March 28th by Petrino to be the student-athlete development coordinator.
