    An affair is one thing. Getting human resources involved and then lying to your boss to cover it up is another thing entirely. If those truly are the facts, he's in some really hot water.

    I bet he keeps his job. He's Arkansas's best coach since Lou Holtz. Like I said, if he had gone 7-5 he would have already been fired. But things like this tend to be forgiven as long as you're winnin'.

    If Arkansas wants to be on the hook for sexual harassment allegations, than sure. They'll keep him around

    Not necessarily. In the end its all about $$$. More wins generally lead to more $$$, but in this case, if Petrino's embarrassing actions will lead to lower donations and cause an increase in the risk of HUGE sexual harrassment lawsuits, then he's going to be gone.

    I can agree with that to an extent.

    Just perusing the Arkansas boards, I think they'd lose money if they fire him. Their fans are convinced he's a top-5 coach and that they will slip back into mediocrity if they fire him. I'd guess donations will subside if he's gone.

    Who would be able to sue for sexual harassment? It seems as if their relationship was prior to her hiring, but maybe that doesn't make a difference.

    Exactly right! Personally, I would fire him. But then again, I aint a Razorback fan.

    Depends on the nature of the relationship. And she was already an employee of the university, though not in the specific role.. Again, it's all speculation, but whenever you have a relationship involving higher level employeees and subordinates, there's room for a suit.

    Guess lying to your boss is a bad move.

    Of course this will just hurt Arkansas, Petrino will pack up and be running some other program within a year.

    This isn't a surprise as Petrino gave Arkansas little choice.

    In a side related note:
    Just listening to 84 WHAS radio and they mentioned Arkansas may want to go after Strong as he is from SEC "and" from Arkansas. Dont know if they meant lived there , born there or what. They were saying Strong hasnt been happy with media coverage of U of L's spring football.

    I doubt it. This is a Larry Eustachy-esque move. He may recover, but it will be at a mid-major or as an offensive coordinator somewhere. Basically, he's starting over.

    As for Strong, he is a native of Arkansas but has no ties to Fayetteville. The assistant will likely coach the team throughout this season and who knows after next season.

    Gus Malzahn will likely get a LONG look after this season...

    Petrino is going to land on his feet.

    Nah, he may end up at a smaller school but he will be the head coach, immoral behavior gets forgotten about faster then NCAA violations.
