An Ira Bowman update from The Birmingham News.

https://www.al.com/alabamabasketball/201 9/03/the-i...

- Pearl isn’t expected to retain first-year assistant coach Ira Bowman after his connection to the scandal at the University of Pennsylvania. Former Penn coach Jerome Allen pleaded guilty on March 8 to accepting $300,000 from a Florida health-care executive in exchange for preferred athletic admissions priority for his son. Ivy League schools to do not give athletic scholarships.

Allen testified that Bowman was in on the fraudulent scheme, and Auburn suspended Bowman before the SEC Tournament.

It’s a bad look for Pearl, who already has had one assistant coach busted by the feds.

Now, McMillan could potentially slide into Bowman’s spot on Auburn’s bench, and perhaps bring Watford with him to Auburn. -

McMillan is Mountain Brook High School coach Bucky McMillan, the 2018 National High School Coach of the Year. McMillan's star player is Trendon Watford, a highly ranked PF who is deciding between Alabama, LSU, Indiana and Memphis. Duke may be in play, as well as Auburn.

I could write a dissertation here, but let's just say that Allen and Bowman have a long, long way to go before they can compete with Pearl when it comes to basketball related controversies. He's a scrapper and a very good coach, but has made a lot of enemies along the way with an assorted array of unethical and illegal activities over the decades.

FWIW, Bruce Pearl was at the NJ Coaches Clinic today. Adam Zagoria was there and tweeted out a comment from the coach that he is "confident" and "very, very hopeful that we'll get Ira Bowman back"
