Tennessee men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl has been suspended for the first eight games of the 2011 SEC season, according to a press release made public today.

The Vols received a letter of inquiry on Sept. 10 informing the school that the basketball program was under investigation as a result of various recruiting improprieties.
