|Bruce Pearl would like to coach in the college ranks again, but it likely won't be anytime soon.|
Asked if he was leaning towards taking the job, Pearl wavered: "Prior to going down to Dallas for my interview the lean was that I was probably not going to do it. But having been there and met the people the lean now is that it's a possibility. It's a family decision. I'd have to leave my family, I'm a divorced dad, and there'd be some kids that aren't out of school yet and in college yet that are encouraging me that are saying, "Daddy it's only six months, you should go."
Asked if he expects to coach college basketball again, Pearl replied, "Yeah, I would. I certainly would." Pearl continued, "As soon as I'm allowed it (coaching in college) would be my intention. I've been doing it my entire life and I would like to think that the good outweighs the bad. And the good has very little to do with winning or losing, it has to do with ... six kids graduating this year."
