University of Tennessee to turn Bruce Pearl Gettysvue home into student housing

Former University of Tennessee basketball coach Bruce Pearl's eleventy hundred thousand-square foot home in Gettysvue will be turned into student housing, according to a source close to the college. The home, which was reportedly listed for $2.69 million, is located in the Gettysvue neighborhood. Situated on an acre lot, the home has five bedrooms, a formal dining room in a turret, a billiard room, a theater, an exercise room, six-and-a-half baths, eight fireplaces, three laundry facilities, a saltwater pool, a moat, three bowling alleys, a petting zoo with llamas and chimpanzees, two roller coasters, a working space shuttle, a 27-store mall with an escalator and a small Alpine village of 30 residents. "It's obscene how big the place was for such a small family," said Executive Director of Athletic Coach Housing Charlotte Sherrill. "We thought, why not keep it with the university and house a few hundred students at the same time? Naturally we'll let the football team stay there. Really, who else would we give it to?"
