UT finalizing deal with Jeremy Pruitt to be new head coach

Legendary Hoover coach Rush Propst on expected Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt: 'I think he's ready.'

He will honor our university's values, operate with integrity and be a role model for our student-athletes...

Pruitt is in his second season as Alabama's defensive coordinator after two years in the same position at Georgia.

Pruitt's success this season is particularly impressive given how hard Alabama's defense has been hit by injuries. However, he left prior to Alabama's appearance in the national championship game against Clemson. His first major college break came in 2007, when Nick Saban hired him to be Alabama's director of player development.

Tennessee appears to have its next head coach. The former defensive back played collegiately at both Middle Tennessee and Alabama. Saban is 11-0 in his career against former assistants. With AP Photos.Tennessee has hired Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as its head coach. Alabama led the nation in scoring defense and ranked second in total defense past year. He was also a Broyles Award finalist in 2016. Pruitt then was the defensive coordinator at Florida State on the Seminoles' 2013 national championship team, and he was the defensive coordinator at Georgia under Mark Richt for the 2014 and 2015 seasons before returning to Alabama.

Pruitt is 43 years old and a native of Alabama. He will continue to coach Alabama through the College Football Playoff.

During Pruitt's time as an assistant coach, he's been part of three championship teams (Florida State in 2013, Alabama in 2011-12). Reuben Foster, Jonathan Allen and Jalen Ramsey are just a few of the players he has helped guide to the NFL. Currie also flirted with Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm and N.C. State's Dave Doeren and Washington State's Mike Leach before being replaced by Fulmer.

He will take over for Butch Jones, who the Vols fired on November 12 following a 50-17 loss to Missouri. During the search, John Currie was sacked as director of athletics after just eight months on the job. Then the school's athletic director, John Currie, was sacked last Friday, capping an embarrassing stretch for the once-proud SEC school.
