So the Brilliant UT fan base, puts forth a big petition to hire Bruce Pearl, while CM is still the coach. Dave Hart tells the NIT if they don't get in the NCAA, they will refuse the NIT, so he can presumably Fire CM. Fast forward, they get hot at the end make a nice run. The fan base decides maybe CM is a good coach after all. Now CM looks like he has a job offer to make more money, with a fan base who will probably not do petitions every year. Why would he stay? If it were me, unless Hart was fired(worst AD in the SEC) and I was given a huge raise, I'd be gone, baby gone. And UT will be back at square one looking for a coach...is Don Devoe still available?
