Bruce Pearl’s tenure at Tennessee is over. According to multiple sources, the Vols head coach – who is the subject of an NCAA investigation in which he admitted to lying to the NCAA – was informed of the decision Monday morning by athletic director Mike Hamilton.

So, yeah, uhh ... BC really dodged a bullet here, no?

Bruce [Pearl] said to me, "You know how much I love Boston College ... and I’d love to come back there. But Tennessee took a real chance on me, and I owe it to them to stay here and finish the job."

Even the most optimistic BC fans in the world (of which, let's be honest, there aren't many) cannot expect that there is a remote chance Pearl will be on the sidelines at Conte Forum next November. Yes, Pearl went to BC. Yes, his first assistant coaching job was with BC. But besides that, there is zero motivation for him to leave his situation in Knoxville for the cold, dreary pastures of Chestnut Hill, Mass.

Asked if Tennessee’s Bruce Pearl, a BC alumnus and Massachusetts native, would be too pricey for the Eagles, DeFilippo said: "We’re going to pay what we have to pay to get the right person. We just really are. This is an important hire for us." However, DeFilippo said he has had no contact with Pearl and does not consider him a candidate. "At this point, no, he’s not," DeFilippo said. "That doesn’t mean he couldn’t be at another time.

There's a new sheriff in Stegeman. A sleeping Dawg has been awakened. . . . Even in his own house, Stegeman Coliseum, [Dennis] Felton was upstaged by Bruce Pearl and the magic touch he brought to Tennessee basketball. I have a very different first impression of Mark Fox. As the new coach walked off the court Saturday after his Georgia Bulldogs dominated No. 8 Tennessee 78-63, he gratefully raised his right arm, pointing to the celebrating crowd, then bumped knuckles with one fan and clasped several happy hands extended his way. . . . [T]he only time I heard anyone belting out "Rocky Top" was before tipoff. After Georgia raced to a 14-4 lead there wasn't much to sing about. . . . "I want people to know,'' said Damon Evans, "that this is what a true basketball atmosphere feels like.''

Tennessee fans take notice of Mark Fox's Hoop Dogs. (Kudos to Captain Obvious for crafting that headline, by the way.)

"More than anything, like family, I would ask you to stay with us in the good times and stay with us in the troubled times. As we work our way through this, I ask you to trust us. "And for the guys that remain, I’d ask you to be there for us tonight and Sunday (Kansas game) and as we go on through this season. We’re going to need you more than ever before.’’

From KNS, Bruce Pearl today at the Big Orange Tipoff Club. The story also includes Pearl's thoughts on how Josh Bone, Renaldo Woolridge, Kenny Hall and Steven Pearl will be challenged in new roles tonight against Charlotte (7:00 PM - CSS/ESPN360)

BRUCE PEARL STAYING IN KNOXVILLE, RENEGOTIATES CONTRACT:: "I want to ensure the University of Tennessee and its fans that I’m 100 percent committed to this school, this program and our student-athletes. "I truly love my job, and I want it to be clear that I’m not interested in any other job. There’s no place in the country I’d rather be than the University of Tennessee. My children are happy here in the Knoxville community—one is in high school, one is in middle school and two are currently attending the university. "My staff and I are building a consistent top-25 program and I’m honored and privileged to serve the greatest fans in the country. Tennessee has all the resources necessary to win championships, from our recently upgraded facilities to our ability to schedule. "It’s great to be a Tennessee Vol!" More quotes from Pearl and Mike Hamilton from the University's official statement, from the News-Sentinel.

According to a source close to Tennessee's program, Pearl has expressed interest in the position through intermediaries. The reasons given would be access to the Memphis talent base, which he has not been able to lure to East Tennessee, but would fit well with his up-tempo style of play. Pearl would also be one of the few candidates who could dominate the city in much the same way Calipari did through the sheer force of his personality.

This is not a late April Fool's joke. The story comes from The Commercial Appeal in Memphis, via the Knoxville News-Sentinel's website. And the fear is real.

"Hey coach, will you sign this?'' a fan said to Pearl in the tunnel after the loss to the Cowboys. As Pearl was signing, the man said, "I was kinda hoping I would get you to sign this at practice tomorrow.'' Pearl hesitated for the slightest moment, finished signing the personalized message, and shook the man's hand. "Thanks for coming out,'' Pearl said. That had to be one of the hardest autographs Pearl signed.
