Tennessee makes it official, fires Bruce Pearl

In what comes as no surprise, Tennessee has fired men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl.  The Vols are expected to meet with the NCAA later this spring to find out the penalties from Pearl and ex-football coach Lane Kiffin's violations.  At this point, Tennessee had to let Pearl go so they could show the NCAA that yes indeed, this time things are going to be different.  You cant go into a meeting with the NCAA with the same head coach that has put you there in the first place and look the committee in the eye and tell them things will change.  Pearl has been a liar since his days as an assistant at Iowa and will never change.  I would expect some college to roll the dice and give Pearl a chance at redemption.  I also would expect that same college to be right in the same position Tennessee is a few years after.
