KNOXVILLE, TENN. (AP) - Tennessee athletics director Mike Hamilton says he does not know if Bruce Pearl will be the Volunteers’ coach after this season ends.

In an interview with WNML-AM in Knoxville that aired Wednesday, Hamilton said that he, the UT-Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy Cheek and school trustees will evaluate Pearl after the season ends. The ninth-seeded Vols play eighth-seeded Michigan on Friday in the NCAA tournament.

Pearl has been working without a contract since revealing in September that he mislead NCAA investigators during a probe into recruiting. The NCAA charged him with unethical conduct and other violations, though the NCAA has not released a final ruling on the matter.

Hamilton did not return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking additional comment.
