Samuel, who has been clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.36 seconds, is ranked 116th nationally by

Samuel broke the Eramus Hall school record in the 60-yard dash at 6.42 seconds despite not having any previous experience in track.

The Arkansas Razorbacks football team like their counterparts around the country are in the midst of Spring practices and concentrating on football and not the status of their head coach.

Starting today, (Friday, April 6) the team will be without Bobby Petrino who was put on administrative paid leave Thursday night after athletic director Jeff Long discovered that Petrino failed to inform the school that he had been riding with a female university employee when he had a motorcycle accident on Sunday.

Former Ohio State assistant Taver Johnson, who was hired in January as the assistant head coach and linebackers coach, has been put in charge of the program.

Petrino said in a statement released by the university that he had concerns about protecting his family and keeping an “inappropriate relationship from becoming public.”

Long acknowledged he did not hear about any type of passenger being a part of the motorcycle accident until Coach Petrino called him on Thursday afternoon. The full police report was released about the accident a few minutes later and the presence of a female was identified as Jessica Dorrell, a former volleyball player at Arkansas, who is currently employed by the football program. She is 25 years old.

Petrino, who is married and has four children, had a news conference with the media on Tuesday after being released from the hospital and did not mention anything about a passenger being involved in the accident.

Long made the decision to put the 51-year-old Petrino on leave during at a 9:45 pm Central Time news conference with their being no timetable for determining the coach’s fate whether it be a suspension or firing.

Petrino has made great progress in four years at Arkansas. The program has been a national title contender and has improved their win total each season. His overall record is 34-17, 21-5 during the past two years and finished fifth in the country with losses only to Alabama and LSU, who played in the national championship game. All three schools are from the Southeastern Conference.
