Tennessee has fired Bruce Pearl after he charged with unethical conduct for lying to NCAA investigators during a probe into recruiting.
Bruce Pearl committed a violation by hosting a high school junior recruit at his house for a BBQ, then lied about it to the NCAA.

Pearl met with Tennessee athletics director Mike Hamilton and was informed of the school's decision to fire him.
He also reportedly received a buyout despite not having a contract, which is quite an achievement if you can pull it off.
