UPDATE: Details of Bruce Pearl’s New Auburn Contract Released
Details of Auburn men’s basketball coach Bruce Pearl’s new contract have been made public.
Pearl stands to make more than $50 million under a new eight-year contract.
Athletic director Allen Greene announced terms of the deal hours before the top-ranked Tigers faced Oklahoma at Auburn Arena.
Greene and Pearl had announced an agreement on social media Friday without releasing terms.
Pearl’s pay will start at $5.4 million with a $250,000 annual increase that would allow him to make $7.15 million in the final year.
He led Auburn to the Final Four in 2019, and the Tigers received their first-ever No. 1 ranking this week.
