NCAA's Bruce Pearl, Tennessee Basketball Investigation Details Reportedly To Be Released Wednesday

Bruce Pearl could be charged with unethical conduct by the NCAA, according to a report by ESPN.com’s Andy Katz. Tennessee reportedly received a notice of infractions from the NCAA Tuesday, which are expected to be released by the school on Wednesday.

Pearl has been under investigation for having high school junior recruits over to his house, which was against recruiting rules. He also reportedly told them at the time that he knew their presence was a violation and then misled investigators on the matter.

But wait — didn’t Pearl already do his time? He missed the team’s first SEC games of this season. Yep, that was a punishment by the SEC, not the NCAA. That was nothing compared to what he could be staring down the barrel of.

A major portion of Tennessee’s athletic department is reportedly involved in the investigation, not just Pearl’s basketball program. The football and baseball programs also have serious questions to answer.
