    FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (KTHV) - The director of athletics for the University of Arkansas spoke to the media this evening in regards to terminating Razorbacks football coach Bobby Petrino.

    After a five-day review, athletic director Jeff Long confirms that Petrino was fired with cause.

    Today's THV received this statement from Chancellor G. David Gearhart in regards:

    "This is a sad day for the University of Arkansas and Razorback sports. After a thorough review, Vice Chancellor and Director of Athletics Jeff Long has made his decision. Mr. Petrino's contract establishes a process by which he may have his termination decision reviewed. Under that process, the review would ultimately come to me for consideration and action. Given my role in the review process as Chancellor, I must decline further comment on today's announcement."
