Bruce Pearl pushes broken down van out of morning traffic

Auburn Tigers basketball coach Bruce Pearl was a local hero on Wednesday morning. While dealing with the brutal morning traffic, Pearl decided to take some time to help out his fellow man.

Apparently, the company van from Wake Up Coffee Co. blew a clutch when Pearl did his good dead for the day.

Wake Up Coffee Co. took to Twitter to share the story.

That’s pretty great to see.

It is safe to say that Bruce Pearl is fitting into the Auburn community just fine.
