ESPN will air an interview with former Arkansas head football coach Bobby Petrino on SportsCenter later today.

The interview will be Petrino’s first since he was fired earlier this year.

ESPN’s Joe Schad said via his Twitter account that the interview includes discussion of Petrino’s dismissal at Arkansas, as well as his April 1 motorcycle crash involving his subordinate, Jessica Dorrell. He described Petrino’s demeanor as “remorseful, apologetic, and emotional.”

Schad said the segment will air “for sure at 6 p.m. ET” (5 p.m. CST), and that clips from the interview will air during the program beginning this morning.

A story on Petrino, which includes segments of the interview, also appeared at earlier today.
