Here is what Pearl had to say per ESPN,

"I'm humbled and blessed to be back in the game that I love," Pearl told the school's website. "I don't know how long it will take, but it's time to rebuild the Auburn basketball program and bring it to a level of excellence so many of the other teams on campus enjoy."
Tony Barbee was fired last week as Auburns coach after the Tigers finished 14-16 and 6-12 in the SEC.

Tigers just hit a walkoff home run. The best hire by anyone since Saban to Bama.
