I'll be the first to say I did not think he should have been fired at first, however more and more evidence came out throughout the day yesterday that looked bad:
1. Apparently didn't show the President the footage when he said he did.
2. Apparently saw the video in the summer and did not hire the independent investigator until November.
3. The weird situation with the assistant coach that did not get punished directly.
I have to assume that this is a resignation, not a firing since it appears that Pernetti did enough to not get fired, but we shall see.
