Nashville radio host with local reaction to Tennessee firing Bruce Pearl
Nashville radio host Mark Howard joined the show to talk about Tennessee firing basketball coach Bruce Pearl.
Dan asked Howard if they ran a poll in Tennessee, would people vote to keep Pearl. “I think it’d be 65-35 in favor,” Howard said.
But Howard said people aren’t totally up in arms. “They love what Pearl did, but they understand why Tennessee did what they did,” Pearl said.
Howard said the main problem with Pearl is recruiting. “Bruce Pearl on the recruiting trail is radioactive,” Howard said. “He glows in the dark.”
Howard said he’s not sure how attractive the job will be moving forward because they face sanctions and have a lame duck AD.
