Bruce Pearl is not a shy man.
Whether it was painting his bare chest orange, singing “Rocky Top” in the cafeteria or firing up players, students and fans in any way possible, the former Boston College mascot never shied away from the spotlight at Tennessee and never missed a chance to promote and market his program.
Well, he’s now at Auburn and is picking up right where he left off.
Take what happened recently during a marketing class on campus. In front of dozens of unsuspecting students, the Tiger cheerleaders, mascot and marching band — along with top player KT Harrell and Pearl himself — marched right into the classroom and formed their own little pep rally.
And amidst it all, the one-and-only Bruce Pearl is yelling, waving his arms and just doing assorted Bruce Pearl things.
It was definitely a class students were glad they didn’t skip.
