Former Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino crashed his motorcycle while transporting a female athletic department employee who was not his wife. Petrino had used his influence to get his mistress a job and then failed to disclose details of the accident to school officials until days later, resulting in his termination.

"I have played it over and over in my head a million times," Petrino told ESPN in his first postfiring interview. "How could I do this? How could this happen? And not just the hiring. Or that day. But my actions, my behavior—for months it was just wrong."
