Former Arkansas volleyball player and current Razorback Foundation fundraiser Jessica Dorrell has been named the new student-athlete development coordinator for football.

Dorrell, an all-SEC volleyball player, will transition into the football program after working at the Razorback Foundation since 2010. As student-athelte development coordinator Dorrell will handle on-campus recruiting and work with incoming players on eligibility issues. She’ll be the point person for official and unofficial recruiting visits.

Here’s what Coach Bobby Petrino had to say about the addition of Dorrell to the football staff:

“Jessica Dorrell will be a great addition to our football program. As a former student-athlete she has an enthusiasm for the Razorbacks and is familiar with what the University of Arkansas can offer. She is extremely organized and has a professional approach, which should translate well into our program and recruiting as we continue to place an emphasis on this area.”

Dorrell graduated from the UA in 2008 and earned a master’s in business administration in 2010.
