"While Ms. Dorrell had a legitimate right to apply for and accept a position within the football program, the circumstances surrounding the former coach's decision to hire her compromised her ability to be effective in such a position," UA athletics director Jeff Long said, according to FOX Sports.

"She and I believe she should have the opportunity to move on."
