CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - While acknowledging comments from
Tennessee's athletic director about his uncertain future "came as
a bit of a surprise," Bruce Pearl insists he's not thinking about
the possibility he has just one game left as Volunteers coach.

Wanting to talk about Michigan's motion offense and 1-3-1 zone
defense a day before their second-round NCAA tournament matchup,
Pearl instead was peppered with questions Thursday about his job
status.

AD Mike Hamilton said in a radio interview Wednesday that the
"jury is out" on Pearl and that he'd be evaluated at the end of
the season. Pearl has admitted lying during an NCAA investigation.

Pearl says "up until recently" he was under the assumption
he'd be able to defend himself in a June NCAA hearing while still
Tennessee's coach.
