Pearl’s back-up plan? Pumping gas

Good to know Bruce Pearl’s planning ahead.

The Tennessee coach’s NCAA recruiting violations have cast some doubts about his future with the Vols, so he’s doing his best to broaden his prospects. Like pumping gas.

“In coaching, you always need to have a profession you need to fall back on if you don’t win enough games, so I’m just here practicing,” Pearl joked in a promotional video for an event to raise money for the United Way of Greater Knoxville. Pearl was a “celebrity pumper.”

Forward thinking and a sense of humor? Only Pearl.
