08:24 AM ET 07.06 | Soon, some of Bruce Pearl's trusted assistants will have served their time, while Pearl himself has another few years in college basketball's version of purgatory. He's been doing radio and hopes to join ESPN for the coming season. Nothing official yet. "I want to see if I'm any good at calling games and being in studio," he said. "I want to see if the lifestyle fits and the travel is OK. I want to see if it fits with what I'm doing with Hackney." And if it does all fit, if it's enough, Pearl might not feel compelled to return to the bench. "Coaching was just part of what I did at Tennessee," Pearl said. ... "I don't know that I want coaching to continue to decide where is home. This is home."

If they allow him to recruit illegally, why not?

Bruce Pearl and Bobby Petrino will coach again. IF you can win, you can coach, regardless of how screwed-up they/their past is

If not coaching, I think the political field would be perfect.

Petrino already does a great Bill Clinton!!
