Bruce Pearl Still Punished Until August For Previous Recruiting Violations
But for those who've followed the sport and know why Pearl was available to be hired at Auburn to begin with, there are a few questions regarding his new post with the Tigers.
Pearl, 54, was fired by Tennessee on March 21, 2011, because of two reasons: he committed recruiting violations, but more specifically, he lied to NCAA investigators about those violations and asked others being investigated in the case to do the same.
Pearl's show-cause penalty ends on Aug. 23 of this year.
