Here's a link to Dorrell's resume... see for yourself...
Wilkerson’s qualifications included his playing time at LSU. His references...??? Les Miles, Nick Saban, Jimbo Fisher, Will Muschamp, and Derek Dooley.
Fields has a master’s from Arkansas. She has been a Razorback Recruiting Assistant for three years. Her references...??? Petrino, current UAB coach Garrick McGee, and Dann Kabala, the person who held the job before Dorrell eventually would.
Also from 5NewsOnline:
Mark Robinson, director of football operations, added Dorrell’s name for the job the day before she interviewed.
Petrino’s wrote a personal recommendation for Dorrell saying, “Out of the candidates, she has the best experience and … would be the best fit for this position.”
The HQ sees how that all turned out...
What's almost $56-grand pro-rated for four days' work...???
Here's some of the text conversations between the school and Petrino, just for good measure...
PM UPDATE: SI.com's Epstein and McCann have a must-read piece on how RP, Esq. completely and TOTALLY circumvented the employment hiring practices on campus that re-emphasizes the whole abuse of power that Petrino had since he was coaching a winning football program.
