Pearls with Bruce Pearl: Coaching Through a Pandemic

In a off subject podcast, we are joined with Auburn University’s Head Basketball, Bruce Pearl. In this fun and uplifting discussion, Coach Pearl discusses on how he has coached through the COVID-19 Pandemic. We also get into his coaching methods and how his faith has influenced his life and more importantly coaching his players. Our sports correspondent, Dylan Stephenson, moderates this podcast in his debut.

Bruce Pearl
In five years as head coach at Auburn, Bruce Pearl has led the Tigers to 100 wins, two Southeastern Conference championships, back-to-back NCAA Tournament berths and the program’s first ever appearance in the Final Four.

In his 24 seasons, he has guided his teams to the NCAA Tournament 19 times and ranks second among active SEC coaches in winning percentage as an NCAA head coach at .722.

Pearl is one of just three head coaches to take four programs (with three at the DI level) to the Sweet 16, joining Lon Kruger and Eddie Sutton.
