FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long has called an evening news conference to discuss the situation of suspended football coach Bobby Petrino.

The news conference is set for 7:15 p.m. CDT Tuesday.

Petrino was involved in a March 31 motorcycle crash outside of Fayetteville and Long suspended him after learning Petrino failed to disclose he had a passenger -- a 25-year-old female employee.

Petrino released a statement Thursday after a police report revealed Jessica Dorrell was on the motorcycle with him in which he said he was trying to conceal an inappropriate relationship. Petrino is married and has four children.
