   Pearl has been hired as of Tuesday afternoon.

   A major factor in his hiring was the show-cause penalty, handed down after his dismissal in 2011.

   This makes the second impact hire that Auburn Athletic Director Jay Jacobs has made in the past two off-seasons. The first being football coach Gus Malzahn.
