KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Former Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl returns to Thompson-Boling Arena as an opponent Jan. 31 when the Volunteers host Auburn.
Pearl led Tennessee to NCAA tournament appearances in each of his six seasons before getting fired amid an NCAA investigation in 2011. Auburn hired Pearl in March, and he returns to coaching this season. The date of the Auburn-Tennessee game was announced Friday as the Vols revealed their entire 2014-15 season.
Tennessee already had announced its non-conference schedule in June. The Southeastern Conference unveiled its composite schedule Friday.
The five SEC opponents Tennessee will face twice each are Arkansas, LSU, Mississippi State, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. Tennessee's lone game with Kentucky is Feb. 17 in Knoxville. The Vols don't host Florida but will face the Gators in Gainesville on Feb. 28.
