By Gary ParrishThe NCAA will announce on Wednesday that former Tennesseee basketball coach Bruce Pearl is receiving a multi-year show-cause penalty for admitted violations that cost him his job, a source told CBSSports.com on Tuesday. The show-cause penalty, according to the source, is expected to range three years.
The source added that Pearl's former assistants -- Tony Jones, Steve Forbes and Jason Shay -- will each receive one-year show-cause penalties for their roles in the recruiting violations. Jones is now a high school coach just outside of Knoxville. Forbes and Shay are coaching at a junior college in Florida.
Pearl made six NCAA tournaments in six seasons at Tennessee.
He was fired in March.
