Bruce Pearl is done. Less than a week after the NCAA basically banned the dude from coaching college basketball until 2015, he’s hung up his coaching jacket to sell groceries. That’s right… statement released by Pearl today, he announced that he would be staying in Knoxville and joining HT Hackney as vice president of marketing. WTF!
But don’t act too surprised because this job is probably going to pay Pearl more than the $500,000 a year that he was offered to coach the Texas Legends, the Dallas Mavericks‘ D-League franchise… Forbes magazine ranks HT Hackney as the 82nd largest privately held company in the country with annual revenues of about $4 billion.
