Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl dresses up as Gus Malzahn

Auburn's basketball team hosted "Pearl Jam" last night for students to come to the arena and get excited about the upcoming basketball season. Auburn's new basketball coach Bruce Pearl came out and dressed as football coach Gus Malzahn, complete with the headset and play-calling board.

Pearl said, "I want to be just like Gus!" as he came out dressed as Malzahn (he explained that he got Gus' "blessing" to dress as him). If Pearl can do for the basketball program what Malzahn has done for the football program, Auburn fans would be ecstatic.
