AUBURN, AL (WBRC) -

When the basketball coaches from the Southeastern Conference release their All-SEC team, it’s a big deal to players and coaches - it’s an even bigger deal if you are a coach and you feel as if your players have been snubbed. 

Such is the case with Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl who talked one-on-one with Christina Chambers on Tuesday. When the All-SEC first team was released, there was not an Auburn player included: Not Bryce Brown, not Jared Harper, not Mustafa Heron. Brown and Heron were named to the second team, and Pearl himself watched as Tennessee coach Rick Barnes was named the SEC Coach Of The Year.

What does Coach Pearl think of the coaches vote? He didn’t hold back on Tuesday afternoon. Check out the video above.
