Bobby Petrino was hurt in a motorcycle crash Sunday night, but the 51-year-old Arkansas football coach is listed in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery, according to a statement released by his family Monday morning.
Petrino crashed his motorcycle after veering off a highway near the town of Crosses in Madison County, Ark., and was taken to a hospital for treatment, state police said.
Zack Higbee, a spokesman for Petrino, had no comment on the accident Monday and would not even say if Petrino was involved. But in a statement issued through the university, Petrino's family confirmed the incident.
"Coach Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening that involved no other individuals," the statement said. "Our family appreciates respect for our privacy during the recovery and we are grateful for the thoughts of Razorback fans at this time."
