The Auburn Tigers made a bold move this year and hired former Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl to lead the team into a new era of weird suits, greasy hair and flamboyant coaching. Pearl is that guy who refuses to acknowledge that he’s not a young guy anymore and he seems to fully embrace the frat boy campus life.
It’s not always a bad thing but he was banned from the NCAA for basically being a meathead so his second time around may be a bit more reserved.
Or not. A video has surfaced of Pearl being dunked in a Dunk Tank at Auburn which is ironically something a lot of people actually want to do to Pearl should they ever encounter him again.
Some men grow into their old age with grace, others have a midlife crisis and then there is Bruce Pearl. Love him or hate him, he’s undeniably going to be interesting to watch while at Auburn this year and how many ever years he lasts after that.
