Pearl takes job as VP for Knoxville company
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Former Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl has taken a job with a Knoxville-based wholesale grocery company as a vice president of marketing.
Pearl had also been considering an offer to coach the Texas Legends of the NBA's developmental league but says in a statement released Tuesday that he feels Knoxville is home for him and his family.
He will begin working at H.T. Hackney on Thursday. The company is led by Chairman and CEO Bill Sansom, a former University of Tennessee trustee.
Pearl was fired from Tennessee in March in the wake of a two-year NCAA investigation that culminated Wednesday with a three-year show-cause penalty against the coach.
