Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long listens to a question during a news conference in Fayetteville, Ark., Thursday, April 5, 2012. Arkansas football coach Bobby Petrino has been placed on paid administrative leave. Long announced the decision late Thursday, capping a stunning day in which it was revealed that Petrino had a 25-year old female employee with him during a weekend motorcycle ride that ended in a crash.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long says he is working on the review of Bobby Petrino's conduct throughout the weekend and will likely work on Easter Sunday.

Long, met as he was walking out of the Broyles Athletic Center on Saturday morning, tells The Associated Press that Petrino's review process is "ongoing." He didn't offer a timetable for the conclusion of the review.

Petrino was put on paid leave Thursday after a police report revealed he was riding with a 25-year-old female employee during a motorcycle accident last weekend. The 51-year-old coach initially said he was alone during the accident before admitting to Long on Thursday that he wasn't.

Petrino also acknowledged a "previous inappropriate relationship."
