 KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl apologized to fans and fellow coach Pat Summitt for the arrests of four members of his No. 14 basketball team.
Senior forward Tyler Smith, sophomore guard Cameron Tatum, junior center Brian Williams and junior point guard Melvin Goins are facing misdemeanor drug, gun and alcohol charges. Knoxville police arrested the four Friday after stopping the car they were in for speeding.
Pearl says he's phoned the parents of all his players and even texted Lady Volunteers coach Pat Summitt to apologize if his team has tarnished the good image she's worked to build.
The four players are indefinitely suspended, and Pearl says dismissal could be an option once he has more information about the incident.
