Ever since splitting from his wife of 25 years, Bruce Pearl has been looking for a new love. And now the Tennessee Volunteers men’s basketball coach appears to have found one.
During a UT promo tour known as the Big Orange Caravan, Pearl announced that he’s engaged. So who’s the lucky woman that Bruce is ready to tie the knot with in Knoxville?
Is it Pat Summitt? I knew it! Actually, no - Bruce is really betrothed to the lovely lady on the right. (More pics & info after the jump.)
Ending his comments during a breakfast with UT alumni at River Plantation RV Center, Pearl said he is committed to being the men’s basketball coach at Tennessee for a long time. Then Pearl revealed another commitment when he introduced the crowd to his new fiancee, Brandy Miller, a native of Sevierville who attended the breakfast with Pearl.
“If you think I’m leaving that for Memphis, you’re crazy,” said Pearl, whose name was linked to the school’s opening after John Calipari left to become the coach at Kentucky.
No wedding date has been set, since Bruce still has to worry about recruiting and scheduling and other b-ball matters. But we can be pretty sure that the bride-to-be won’t get her wedding day hair done at local beauty parlor Alimony’s.
