The school said Petrino is expected to make a full recovery.

'Coach Petrino was involved in a motorcycle accident on Sunday evening that involved no other individuals,' Petrino's family said in a statement released through the school. 'He is in stable condition and is expected to make a full recovery. Our family appreciates respect for our privacy during the recovery and we are grateful for the thoughts of Razorback fans at this time.'

According to the school, the crash occurred near the town of Crosses in Madison County -- about 23 miles southeast of Fayetteville.

Petrino has a record of 34-17 in four seasons as Arkansas' head coach. He guided the Razorbacks to an 11-2 mark with a Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State this past season.
