Just last Tuesday, the Razorbacks named Dorrell the new “student-athlete development coordinator for football.” What in the hairy hell does that mean, one might ask? Well her duties include handling on-campus recruiting and working with incoming players on eligibility issues. She’ll also “be the point person for official and unofficial recruiting visits.” Sounds like a wonderful opportunity, but all I can think of is the threesome from “He Got Game.”
Here’s Petrino’s quote about the grand addition of Dorrell:
“Jessica Dorrell will be a great addition to our football program. As a former student-athlete she has an enthusiasm for the Razorbacks and is familiar with what the University of Arkansas can offer. She is extremely organized and has a professional approach, which should translate well into our program and recruiting as we continue to place an emphasis on this area.”
All that and she evidently has a deep appreciation for riding hogs.
As previously mentioned, Dorrell is engaged. The guy she’s engaged to is Arkansas Director of Swimming and Diving Operations, Josh Morgan. Here’s a photo of the happy couple in a wonderfully spontaneous pose. If you’re in the mood to be a thoughtful pal, go ahead drop a note in their wedding guestbook.
While Petrino likely eats swimmers and swimming directors for breakfast, he would be wise to start making sense, and fast. It’s never a good idea to contradict a police report, especially one presented in ALL CAPS.
One underrated aspect of this story? The battered and bruised Petrino looks a lot like the guy in “Luck” after he got his ass handed to him by two chicks who sell insurance.
