Bruce Pearl met with Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs on Monday night in Knoxville, Tenn., and is strongly considering taking the job as coach, sources told ESPN.
Pearl, 54, was fired in 2011 after taking Tennessee to the NCAA tournament in each of his six seasons. He has worked for ESPN as an analyst the past two years.03/18/2014 at 11:17 AM #47429

I wonder what Kelvin Sampson is up to…03/18/2014 at 11:43 AM #47437BJD95Keymaster
Oustanding hire by Auburn if true. No way they could do any better. There are no prizes for being Miss Congeniality.03/18/2014 at 3:46 PM #47505wufpup76Keymaster
C’mon guys, Herb Sendek removed his name from consideration and that’s all we really need to know.03/18/2014 at 5:36 PM #47529TexpackParticipant
He already knows how to
cheatrecruit in the SEC. He will do well.03/18/2014 at 5:54 PM #4753044rulesParticipant
Like Barkley says, in the SEC, if you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying.

I hope this never gets old. I always chuckle at this meme.03/19/2014 at 1:12 PM #48087StateFansKeymaster
If I am a Boston College fan right now I am IRATE. I don’t what they were doing with Steve Donohue over the last few days, but Pearl is a BC alum. As an NC State fan, I couldn’t be happier that Pearl ended up in the SEC and NOT the ACC. The guy is fantastic. For almost 15 years I’ve thought he would be a fantastic fit in Raleigh.03/19/2014 at 4:52 PM #48127ancsu87Participant
Really? So you want Butch Davis to coach NC State football too. Only difference in Butch and Bruce is that NCAA “wanted” to believe Butch was not lying to them. I want not part of Pearl at NCSU or the ACC for that matter. Cannot imagine BC having any interest in him even if he is an alumnus. I can understand it being a good fit for Auburn. Then again they actually thought Jeff Lebo would make a good coach.03/19/2014 at 9:45 PM #48152
This was a solid Petrino-lite hire. Charles Barkley is very excited about it. Say what you want about Pearl, but he’ll get them excited about basketball there. Tons of energy. Easy conference in which to make some waves, too.
