According to a report by Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Maine Red Claws have contacted former Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl about their head coaching job. The Red Claws have been affiliated with the Celtics and Bobcats since their debut in the NBA’s D-League in 2009.

Austin Ainge, the son of the Celtics president, coached the Red Claws for the last two seasons and recently joined the Celtics front office as director of player personnel. The Red Claws are run by former Celtics assistant coach Jon Jennings and have enjoyed two sellout seasons in Portland.

Pearl was fired after six mostly successful seasons at Tennessee after lying to NCAA investigators during an inquiry into major violations at the school.
