Bruce Pearl: From College Basketball Coach to VP of Marketing For a Wholesale Grocery Company

This is the portion of the post where you joke about how former Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl will show up at a pivotal meeting for his new employer, H.T. Hackney, painted the color of his favorite vegetable. Pearl in purple to represent an eggplant? It sounds like Pearl was thrown a lucrative bone from one of his boys:

H.T. Hackney, which has its corporate offices in downtown Knoxville and a regional distribution center in Roane County, is led by Chairman and CEO Bill Sansom, who formerly sat on UT’s board of trustees and also is a TVA director.

I’d guess it pays significantly better than an NBDL gig, plus you don’t have to deal with travel. Congrats, Bruce.

That’ll be all for today. We’ll be going heavy with college football for the rest of the week. It’s almost here. Breathe. Act like you’ve been here before.

Because you want to see it first!
