Tyler Grant, a freshman at the University of Arkansas, joins fans in a Hog call during a rally Monday in support of head football coach Bobby Petrino at The Gardens on the Fayetteville campus.

Razorbacks head football coach Bobby Petrino asked a state police captain April 2 if he would be required to identify Petrino’s passenger in a motorcycle accident the coach had had the previous day, according to a statement state police released Monday.

Inside the Petrino Crash

PETRINO STATEMENT: “I was informed in writing today at 5:45 p.m. that I was being terminated as head football coach at the University of Arkansas. The simplest response I have is: I’m sorry. These two words seem very inadequate. But that is my heart. All I have been able to think about is the number of people I’ve let down by making selfish decisions. I’ve taken a lot of criticism in the past. Some deserved, some not deserved. This time, I have no one to blame but myself." CONTINUE READING HIS STATEMENT
