A timeline of the relationship between Jessica Dorrell and Bobby Petrino indicates that the relationship between the two became physical when they kissed last October, and ended when they decided to remain just friends in February.

The timeline became public thanks to notes compiled by Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long that were released to The Associated Press via the Freedom of Information Act. According to Long’s notes, phone records show the two began exchanging and text messages last April or May. They exchanged over 2,000 texts in both September and October, which is when the relationship became physical, according to what was told to Long.

According to Long’s notes, the coach and employee shared their first kiss at Dorrell’s urging. Petrino and Dorrell reportedly were sitting in a car, eating lunch and talking and “she said are you going to kiss me.”

Below is a chart detailing the phone contact between Petrino and Dorrell (via Chris Bahn):

Dorrell reportedly told Long she received 5-6 gifts from Petrino, including candy gifts, which may have been Hot Tamales. She also supposedly asked Petrino about getting a courtesy car similar to the ones other employees had, and that could be the reason for the $20,000 gift she received from Petrino, which she used to buy a car.

What doesn’t seem to fit in Petrino’s story is his suggestion that the physical relationship ended in February. Only a month later, he hired Dorrell for a position with the football team, and in April, the two were riding on a motorcycle together.

Oh yeah, we should also point out that Petrino was married with four children while this affair carried on, and Dorrell was engaged to be married.
