Before hiring Bruce Pearl, Auburn athletic director Jay Jacobs did his homework.

Pearl comes to Auburn with five months left on his three-year show-cause penalty which was handed down by the NCAA in 2011 when he was cited with a “failure to monitor the program” charge after lying during an investigation regarding impermissible contact with a recruit while he was the head coach at Tennessee.
