FAYETTEVILLE, AR – The University of Arkansas says Jessica Dorrell has resigned from her position as the football program’s student-athlete development coordinator.
The university says they paid Dorrell $14,000 as part of a settlement agreement. As part of her resignation, Dorrell agreed she would not attempt to sell or profit from her affiliation with the program.
The university says there are no immediate plans to fill the position.
Statement from Athletic Director Jeff Long:
“While Ms. Dorrell had a legitimate right to apply for and accept a position within the football program, the circumstances surrounding the former coach’s decision to hire her compromised her ability to be effective in such a position. She and I believe she should have the opportunity to move on.”
