Tennessee Men’s Basketball Coach Gets Divorce A Month After Women’s Coach

ROCKY MARRIAGES ON ROCKY TOP FOR 2 TENN. COACHES: Just over a month after Tennessee women’s basketball coach Pat Summitt announced she was getting a divorce, the leader of the Vols’ b-ball boys is doing the same:

Bruce Pearl

The KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL reports that Bruce Pearl is calling it quits with wife Kim after 25 years of marriage bliss. The couple have been separated since August, when Bruce returned from a trip to Europe - a trip his better half didn’t go on.


Maybe there’s more to Pat & Bruce’s break-ups than just “irreconcilable differences.” Could it be that the two court generals have been courting each other?

Back in January, Pearl showed his support for Summitt’s sirens when he appeared at a Vols women’s game - orange and shirtless:

A month later, Summitt came to cheer on Pearl’s point guards - in a dandy little cheerleader’s outfit, with a featherly headdress that would make Phyllis Diller proud:

The signs are there, people. You don’t swap a conservative pants suit for a short skirt, or cover your naked torso in paint, unless it’s for someone special.

Ah, yes. Romance reigns at Rocky Top.
