PHOTO: It's Bruce Pearl with a huge Afro
Bruce Pearl let himself go in the best way possible during his college days. Why can't we get a coach to rock this look these days?
The fact that Bruce Pearl once proudly sported this look should surprise exactly no one.
Stupendous 1970s follicle fashion statement here by the young Pearl, seen while attending Boston College. The photo comes via Reddit, and we thank them for adding to the Internet's valuable Inventory of Necessary Photos. The former Tennessee coach -- who was hit with a three-year show cause in August of 2011 -- has been doing TV work with ESPN during his time away from the sideline.
I can't help but think this black-and-white snapshot will lovingly be used against Pearl on the tube many times during next season.
