How did Bruce Pearl keep his job?


The man admitted to intentionally misleading NCAA investigators.

"I've made some serious mistakes, and for that I'm truly sorry," Pearl said tearfully at a news conference. "I provided incorrect and misleading information to the NCAA. I've learned some invaluable lessons. After I provided the false and misleading information, subsequently I went back and corrected the record. I learned that it's not OK to tell the truth most of the time, but you've got to tell the truth all of the time," he said.


I just don't get it.   Certainly he's paying a price with his pay reduction and the 8 SEC game suspension, but shouldn't this have cost him his job?  Your moral stance on Pitino's situation aside, his trangressions weren't breaking NCAA laws.  Pearl blatantly broke them, and essentially gets a stern slap on the wrist.  I don't know the details, but didn't have have some kind of incident at UW-M?

To be honest, I don't really care one way or the other, because I don't think Tennessee will ever be a threat to make the Final Four, much less win a title with B. Pearl there.  I think his teams are generally overhyped, and I enjoy 20pt ass whippings in the tournament just as much as the next guy.

But had this happened at my job, where I blatantly lied to the highest officials/executives, you're god damned right I would have been canned.
