Auburn coach Bruce Pearl isn't sweating his job status, at least not publicly, in the wake of a recent report suggesting his job could be in jeopardy if he refuses to cooperate with an ongoing investigation into his basketball program. According to al.com, Pearl recently told his players not to worry about the reports of his potential ouster. "I said, 'Guys, don't worry about it. This is just going through the process,'" Pearl said. In the wake of an FBI probe that determined 10 people in and around the sport were committing acts of bribery and corruption, Pearl's own assistant coach, Chuck Person, was included among them. Person has since been indicted and is facing six federal charges of conspiracy to commit bribery, solicitation of bribes and gratuities, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, honest services wire fraud, conspiracy to commit wire fraud and travel act conspiracy. He is no longer an employee with the school.
