Pearl speaks in Montgomery

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, Ala. -

Bruce Pearl was the guest speaker at the Public Safety Insurance Fund luncheon in Montgomery on Thursday.

The PSIF is a group of 150 businesses that donates money to provide free life- and accidental-death insurance to police officers and firefighters in the Montgomery area.

Pearl spoke with the media and touched on a variety of topics. He called senior KT Harrell the best player and hardest-working player on the team. He also said he does not view the job he has to do at Auburn as pressure.

“Nobody is going to put more pressure on me than I am going to put on myself,” Pearl said. “I’m not asking fans to be patient because we’ve been patient long enough. I don’t look at it as pressure; I look at it as responsibility. Auburn has made a great commitment to men’s basketball, and with that is a great responsibility to deliver. I don’t look at it as pressure. It’s just something I want to do for our university, for our state.”

The coach and his staff can work with any players enrolled in summer school currently for eight hours per week, including two on the court.
