Bruce Pearl Wouldn’t Hire Bruce Pearl Right Now

  • Timothy Burke

Penalized former Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl told Dan Patrick Friday his reputation is so tarnished, he wouldn’t even hire himself.

The NCAA tagged Pearl Wednesday with a three year show-cause penalty, making it difficult-to-impossible for any college program to hire him. He reportedly interviewed earlier this month with the D-League Texas Legends.

As for a job coaching in the NCAA? We’re not quite there yet. Pearl says: “I wouldn’t hire me right now.”
