The content of Petrino's text messages still available on his phone were obtained by The Associated Press through a Freedom of Information Act request Thursday night.
In the messages, Petrino tells Long he appreciated how he handled the April 5 news conference in which Long placed Petrino on paid leave.
Petrino was fired Tuesday for failing to disclose his relationship with Jessica Dorrell, whom he hired last month without disclosing his relationship with her or the fact he had once paid her $20,000.
