DALLAS (AP)  Fired Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl is scheduled to meet Wednesday with the Texas Legends, an NBA D-League team looking for a new coach.

The team planned a media availability with Pearl and Donnie Nelson, the Dallas Mavericks general manager who is a co-owner of the D-League team, after the two meet.

Pearl was fired by Tennessee in March after the school learned the coach had possibly committed another recruiting violation after his teary admission six months earlier of lying to NCAA investigators. Pearl had been charged with unethical conduct by the NCAA.

Nancy Lieberman led the Legends to the playoffs in her only season as coach. She is now the team’s assistant general manager.
