He consistently wins at a high level, recruits really well, and is terrific at marketing a program. But he has past NCAA issues.
He is one of the lower paid coaches in the SEC at a school that is traditionally one of the worst basketball jobs in the leage. Auburn is also paying a fortune to their football coach right now, so I think if we really wanted him, we could get him.
The question is, would our administration consider him?
Have you been reading the news? Do you want a basketball coach or a complete fool that would do anything to win and that includes break any rule or law and can’t spell integrity let alone have any! He is a lying dirt bag? He can coach! That’s part of what your looking for! He’s on the not no but, HELL no list!
I don’t know if the administration would consider Pearl or not. I would hope not. Personally, I think the UA needs to stay away from the “win at all costs” coaches. And that includes Kelvin Sampson. Also, sadly, I must now include Bill Self in that group the UA needs to avoid. I used to be a huge admirer of Self, but after what the FBI investigation has revealed about him; I’ve lost a ton of respect for that man.
I don’t think HY would hire a coach that has had past NCAA violations, after firing MA and then to hire a win at all cost coach he had better go ahead and call U-haul because he’s gone he just hasn’t left yet. There’s way to many good coaches out there to go for us to hire a potential problem. WPS
GO BIG!! Or GO HOME!! if you are going to go for a cheater forget Samson, he’s a amateur, improper contact is nothing just a few vacated games. Pearl is just another amateur his cheating at TEN involved some sort of a BBQ. Well, now one or two of his assistants is facing a fed indictment. Now if we really want to commit ourselves to winning Rick Pitino is the man a real Pro at it (allegedly). He knows how to show recruits a good time (well one of his assistants of course) and whatever the thing he got fired for. Whatever, let’s just get Rick here and let’s get to winning!!
i have been a hog fan for over 50 years. The only thing that will get me to stop being a hog fan is for us to go the Cheater’s route and win at all costs route. If that happens I am out and looking for another team. Their may be many that think that is the way to go, but count me out. I know it happens and may be more rampant than most think, but it’s a sad state of affairs if that is what it takes to win consistently.
