Pearl Signs New 6 Year Deal With Vols

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee men's basketball coach Bruce
Pearl has a newly renegotiated six-year contract keeping him with
the Volunteers.
The deal came hours after reports surfaced that Memphis wanted
to talk to Pearl about replacing John Calipari, who has left for
Kentucky.
Interim president Jan Simek and athletic director Mike Hamilton
announced that they and Pearl have agreed in principle to the new
deal. Details will be released within the next few days.
Pearl says in a statement that Hamilton has been supportive and
is committed to making Tennessee one of college basketball's best
jobs.
