The documents include Athletic Director Jeff Long's letter to Petrino outlining why he was fired.
One section states the following:
"In a meeting with me, you recommended hiring Jessica Dorrell...but you deliberately failed to tell me that you had engaged in an extramarital affair with Ms. Dorrell over a period of several months leading up to your recommendation to hire her."
The letter also confirms rumors earlier this week that Petrino gave $20,000 to Dorrell, which she used to buy a new car. It states: "You admitted giving $20,000 cash to Ms. Dorrell as a "gift. Ms. Dorrell used the money to purchase a black Acura during the first week that she worked for the football program. Among other concerns relating to this "gift," you should have disclosed this fact to me when you recommended hiring Ms. Dorrell in the football program, but you failed to do so."
In closing the letter, Long wrote, "I recognize that you are a very talented football coach, but the University may not disregard your conduct or sacrifice its integrity, reputation and principles."
The complete documents are attached below.
