Bruce Pearl Signs New Contract With Tennessee

It appears that all of those orange jackets will not be replaced by Tiger blue ones. Bruce Pearl signed a contract extension on Thursday afternoon with the University of Tennessee. The details of the agreement will be released in the coming days.

"I want to ensure the University of Tennessee and its fans that I'm 100 percent committed to this school, this program and our student-athletes," Pearl said.

"I truly love my job, and I want it to be clear that I'm not interested in any other job. There's no place in the country I'd rather be than the University of Tennessee."

Last July, Tennessee signed a six-year deal with Pearl that paid him $1.6 million for the 2008-2009 season and an average of $2.3 million a year. The new deal is for six years and will presumably be for more than $2.3 million a year, but no specific figures have been released.
