Bruce Pearl; from hoops to hope

Crossville, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Bruce Pearl has stayed out of the lime light since the University of Tennessee relieved him of his duties.

He prefers it that way these days, focusing his time and attention on others and helping the charities that have been a big part of his time on Rocky Top.

Sports Overtime's Rick Russo shows you what the former coach has been up to since he left the program.

    Rather the NCAA should be up for allegations of restraint of trade. Their arcane and unenforceable rules are out of touch with the present day recruitment, economic needs, and sociology of the players.
