Bruce Pearl makes Cal look like a Pentecostal preacher. Pearl has character flaws way beyond Cal's, and as the old saying goes, "the leopard can't change his spots."

How is that even possible? 04-jawdrop

Yeah, that would be great. The probation that would soon follow, not so much.

RE: Bruce Pearl at FedExForum for Memphis Madness
Pearl is an exceptionally good coach & evaluator of talent. He's a very good color analyst too.

Pearl has been slimy his entire career though - as an assistant and as a head coach. His show cause is through next summer & I'd expect he'll land in '15-'16 at a Div I lower level team that is a bit desperate.
He'll be ~55 so his time window for Div I is starting to wind up.

Pearl won't ever coach at a top tier Div I school - it would be too embarrassing to most of the admin, alum and boosters. Brad Martin wouldn't even consider Pearl, rightly so.

RE: Bruce Pearl at FedExForum for Memphis Madness
Logic could simplify this discussion. (1) Memphis isn't in the market for a men's basketball coach. (2) The vast majority of coaches in Division I are guilty of the very same infractions Bruce Pearl was fired over. They simply haven't gotten caught yet. (3) Bruce Pearl is a proven coach which is precisely what the University of Texas needs. (4) Josh Pastner has not proven himself as yet. He still lacks success against ranked opponents and isn't credited with any deep runs in the NCAA tournament. (5) Within the limitations of this discussion, Pearl is the only coach to fit the criteria.

Maybe most coaches have done what Pearl initially did, but they were smart enough to fess up and keep their jobs. I like a good douche from time to time, but I'm over having one as a basketball coach.

As previously stated, "(1) Memphis isn't in the market for a men's basketball coach." Bruce Pearl isn't needed at Memphis and the possibility of his coming to Memphis is remote. I don't think you have any reason to worry.
