Auburn's Pearl wants focus to remain on season

On Friday, Auburn coach Bruce Pearl met with reporters but would not comment on the federal charges facing assistant Chuck Person other than to say that the conduct alleged in the criminal complaint is "unacceptable."

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Auburn coach Bruce Pearl was asked about his own job security, player eligibility and how he'll manage to recruit. He stuck to the "no comment" approach throughout, trying to keep the focus on the start of practice rather than the fallout from the federal charges assistant coach Chuck Person faces.

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Bruce Pearl: "The reason we're having this press conference right now is the start of practice. I won't answer any more questions about matters relating to (the investigation)."

Alex Scarborough ESPN Staff Writer 

Bruce Pearl says the conduct described in the FBI investigation is unacceptable and stands by Auburn's official statement from earlier in the week. He says he won't comment beyond that.
