WATCH: Bruce Pearl moshes with Auburn fans after stepping off plane

By Matt Norlander | Staff Writer

He's been on Auburn soil for less than 40 minutes and we're already posting videos and photos of an excitable Bruce Pearl.

Auburn basketball, welcome to relevancy.

In the video above, Pearl gets off the team plan and greets the boisterous bros who are all too happy to have him at the program. Then they do a little moshing. Amazing. Pearl is most definitely ready for this.

And we are ready for him to be back in college hoops.

Check out the longer video of his impromptu press conference for media and fans. The guy is quite simply a natural. From embracing the crowd to a "WAR EAGLE!" to playfully scolding someone for having a cellphone ring, Pearl's already feeling like a natural with the midnight navy and burnt orange.

Here's a few more shots of the moments after Pearl stepped off the jet.
