Bruce Pearl climbs in dunk tank for Auburn frat charity event (photos/videos)


Further establishing himself as a campus legend in the making, Auburn Tigers new men’s head basketball coach Bruce Pearl made an appearance on Wednesday at a fraternity charity event, during which he happily hopped into a dunk tank.

Yep, there was Pearl, going shirtless, and allowing himself to get dunked, all in the name of charity, not to mention earn some brownie points on campus with the students.


Jeez Louise, talk about making a “splash,” am I right? about the only thing Pearl could do at this point to further ingratiate himself to Tigers Nation would be to paint himself up in stripes and grow a tail.

He’s already done the body-painting bit, back in his days with Tennessee…


…but the tail-growing may prove to be a bit more difficult. Alternatively, he could grow out the epic Afro he had in the 1970s:


That would be pretty sweet.
