By The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) ' Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino has been put on paid leave.

Athletic director Jeff Long announced the decision late Thursday, capping a stunning day in which it was revealed that Petrino had a 25-year-old female employee with him during a weekend motorcycle ride that ended in a crash.

A police report released Thursday showed that he had been riding with former Arkansas volleyball player and current Razorback Foundation fundraiser Jessica Dorrell.

She was not injured in Sunday's accident. Petrino broke four ribs and cracked a neck vertebra, but didn't reveal he was riding with the woman during a news conference Tuesday.

Long says he wasn't told until Thursday that Dorrell was on the ride with Petrino.
