BRUCE PEARL AWAITS NCAA DECISION
Mon, 11 Jul 2011 02:58 PM EDT

The Former basketball coach of Tennessee Bruce Pearl is patiently awaiting the NCAA’s decision on a possible punishment, despite what he believes will be another shot at becoming coach. Football lines

Speaking to the media Pearl said “I do think that I’m going to have the opportunity to coach again,” “I’ve got to wait and see what the Committee on Infractions, what they say, probably coming up sometime in the middle of August and how quickly will they allow me to come back into coaching. That’s going to go a long way towards whether or not I do coach again.”

Pearl could possibly be punished for the actions which resulted in him being fired after the season. He has been under investigation regarding inappropriate contact with fresh recruits and also providing the NCAA with false information. According to an interview Pearl said that he only answered two questions falsely. He also believed that if he told the truth to begin with he would still have the job. NFL odds

He told the station “Do you want me to write the book about how do you lose $10 million jobs? I can write the book,” “How can you be so dumb and so careless? … It’s not so much about what we did, it’s about how we handled it. “I think there was some decisions that we made. Specifically, in my visit with the enforcement staff. I answered about 150 questions. I answered 148 of them honestly. There were two questions that I did not answer honestly. Had I answered those two questions knowingly, willingly, honestly, instead of a week later asking them to come back because I knew I had made a mistake … you guys would be interviewing the coach at Tennessee.” Football betting lines

He said that he believed that it was Jim Tressel’s issues at Ohio State that caused a problem with him back in Tennessee.

He said “Originally I thought it was going to be a good thing for me, and you know what? That’s a sorry thing to say,” “I read coach Tressel’s book, I’ve heard a lot about him as a coach and a person, and most of it’s really outstanding. I think that it wound up hurting me because, times as they are right now, we all kind of get lumped into one, big ‘These are the guys that violate the rules. These are the cheaters.’ I actually think that trend has kind of hurt me a little bit.”
