Bruce Pearl may be long gone as the men’s basketball coach at Tennessee, but his wardrobe choices live on in Knoxville. Just ask Vols defensive lineman Jacques Smith.
“I like his style,” Smith said of Pearl when he appeared at SEC Media Days on Wednesday wearing a creamsicle-colored blazer similar to the one Pearl patrolled the Thompson-Boling Arena sidelines in. It’s actually paired quite nicely with what appears to be navy blue dress pants and a navy blue tie with thin red diagonal stripes.
