“It was a wonderful learning experience,” Golden said of working at Pearl. “I came to Auburn from Columbia, and so we were working with — it was a low key program with incredibly smart student athletes. Not a lot of resources. Trying to navigate through different situations in the best possible way, then go down with Bruce to Auburn. It was a ball game Totally different. It was going from a low key state to a high major, what I consider roughly professional athletics in terms of the way it’s supported, and the resources.”
