Bruce Pearl on Arizona List?

On ESPN, their on-campus reporter gave a list of potential replacements for Lute Olson. High on the list is Bruce Pearl. What are the chances CBP would consider the job if offered? I think not too likely.

If they offer him a lot more money, he will consider it. Which they will if they offer him the job.

All the more reason he should make more then Fulmer and Pat Summit.

Guess we're going to have to do this every time a coach steps down or is fired...I felt that there was more chance Bruce would have taken the Indiana job than there is that he would take the Arizona job...no ties, no recruiting base, would be a tough sell to the fans as well.

I have no problems with him making more than fulmer. IMO fulmer doesnt deserve what he is making now.
Pat summit though is another story. She has more wins than any other basketball coach mens or womens. Her teams win and often win big. I do realize that mens basketball brings in more revenue than womens so pearl will likely get paid more. However if we are just talking about who deserves it thats different.

IMO the market should drive coaches salaries. There are schools that will pay Pearl more then what he makes now at Tennessee, there aren't any that will pay Coach Summit what Tennessee pays her IMO.

From what I've read, women's BB doesn't make money for the Athletic Department. It's partly funded by the men's BB and FB programs.

Pearl isn't going anywhere. He loves UT and the only place we have to worry about him going is BC.

I just hope we never get to the point we are at with Fulmer with Pearl. He is starting to set the standards higher and higher in basketball and like we always do as Vol fans we start to expect it rather than respect it.

Lets hope to the high heavens that he doesn't leave. Then what would we have to look forward to? That is the only thing getting us through this dreadful football season right now. Well that and the hope of the departure of Phil Fulmer

You might be right. However I think there would be a number of shcools that would be all over summit if she decided to leave UT. From just a coaching standpoint she is an amazing coach.
I do know its all business and thats why fulmer gets paid what he does. Football brings in more money than basketball.
Just talking about who deserves it more (the wins and losses) Pat sumitt does.

Never underestimate the effects of more money and nicer weather.

I don't think he would leave though. The university has given him everything that he has asked for

I just believe that because of Bruce building our program up to the level it is now he isn't going anywhere...our program is his baby so to speak.
