Former Tennessee assistant Jason Shay is making a return to Division I basketball coaching after serving a one-year show-cause penalty. He has been hired at North Dakota, a source told CBSSports.com on Monday.
An official announcement is expected soon.
Shay was part of Bruce Pearl's staff that was fired in March 2011 in the middle of an NCAA investigation rooted in a cookout Pearl held at his home in violation of NCAA bylaws. Shay spent the past two seasons at Northwest Florida State with fellow former Tennessee assistant Steve Forbes, who was hired earlier this month at Wichita State. That makes Shay the second person from Pearl's staff to return to Division I.
Pearl's show-cause penalty will expire in August 2014.
The current ESPN analyst also is expected to return to Division I coaching.
