An analysis of the phone records of former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino revealed he was in frequent contact with a second woman.

According to Deadspin, Petrino and Alison Melder exchanged more than 200 text messages during a three-month period between September and November of last year. Melder also sent seven photos to the former coach.

A graduate of Arkansas-Little Rock, Melder, according to her LinkedIn profile, worked as a Senate assistant with the Republican Party of Arkansas. That profile no longer exists.

Melder has done modeling and lists her accomplishments as winner of the 2008 Miss Bikini USA and Miss Motorcycle Mania competitions.

Petrino was fired Tuesday after it was revealed he had an "inappropriate relationship" with female employee Jessica Dorrell.

Phone records released Wednesday indicated thousands of texts between Petrino and Dorrell during the past several months.
