Former Vol head coach appears in ESPNs The Last Dance – Vols Wire

Former University of Tennessee mens basketball head coach Buzz Peterson made a cameo appearance in The Last Dance.

The ESPN documentary is chronicling the Chicago Bulls 1998 championship season and Michael Jordans basketball career.

Chicago won six NBA Championships in eight years between 1991-98 with a cast of characters including Jordan, John Paxson, Ron Harper, Scottie Pippen, Steve Kerr, head coach Phil Jackson and assistant coach Tex Winter, who was the architect of the Bulls triangle offense.

Chicago won three straight titles between 1991-93 before Jordan retired from the NBA to pursue baseball for two years. When Jordan returned, the Bulls were NBA champions between 1996-98.

Jordan and Peterson were roommates at the University of North Carolina.

Peterson coached at Tennessee from 2001-05. With the Vols, he compiled a 61-59 record and finished above .500 twice.

Peterson went 17-12 in 2002-03 and guided UT to the NIT. He went 15-14 in 2003-04 and guided the Big Orange to a second consecutive postseason appearance in the NIT.
