Pearl to meet with D-League team looking for coach

DALLAS (AP/WVLT) -- Fired Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl told WVLT Tuesday night that he will interview with the Texas Legends on Thursday.

The Legends is an NBA D-League team looking for a new coach.

The team planned a media availability with Pearl and Donnie Nelson, the Dallas Mavericks general manager who is a co-owner of the D-League team, after the two meet.

Pearl was fired by Tennessee in March after the school learned the coach had possibly committed another recruiting violation after his teary admission six months earlier of lying to NCAA investigators.

Pearl had been charged with unethical conduct by the NCAA.

The NCAA has yet to announce its punishment, if any, for the former Vols' basketball coach.
