VIDEO: New contract coming, Pearl ‘Locked up’ at Auburn

Auburn AD Allen Greene released a video on Twitter announcing that Bruce Pearl will be “locked up” with a new long-term deal at Auburn.

“I’ve got a big surprise for you,” Greene said in a video posted Friday night. “We locked him up.”

“Listen, it wasn’t that hard,” the coach said. “I’m grateful to Allen. I’m grateful to the administration: (University president Jay) Gogue, General Burgess and the folks that worked on this. My family and I are going to be able to stay and be your basketball coach for a long, long time. I’m grateful. I’m humbled. I’m blessed to be your coach. War Eagle.”

There had been speculation that Louisville would make a run at Pearl, after parting ways with former Head Coach Chris Mack this week. This news will put those rumors to bed.

No details of the extension were announced.
