Bruce Pearl’s “Dream Home” For Sale (Again), Photo of Aaron Craft Not Included…Posted by KAlmekinder on October 9th, 2012
Are you looking for a spacious and luxurious home yet still only minutes away from the benefits of a booming city? Well we have the right house for you! Located in southern Knoxville, this marvelous abode will fill your every property desire. Sitting on over an acre of land, this magnificent five-bed, seven-bath gem is only a short drive from the Tennessee River and the Great Smoky Mountains National Park!
Former Tennessee Volunteers head coach Bruce Pearl has re-listed his Knoxville, Tennessee, area home for just under a cool $2.5 million. Pearl, famous for his orange jacket and eccentric personality, was reprimanded by Tennessee in September 2010 after lying about a recruiting cookout at this house where Pearl encouraged then high school junior Aaron Craft and his father to not disclose the incident to the NCAA. A separate drug incident involving Volunteers forward Brian Williams led to the eventual firing of Pearl in March 2011.
Since his firing, new head coach Cuonzo Martin led the Vols to a 19-15 season last season. Pearl has since worked as the Vice President of H.T. Hackney, a wholesale grocery corporation, and was most recently hired by ESPN as a college basketball analyst for the upcoming 2012-13 year. We’re not sure how much money Pearl will make in television, but we doubt it’ll be enough to support a mortgage on a $2.5 million house (estimated mortgage: $10,000 per month).
