Tennessee Finalizes Deal With Jeremy Pruitt

"Six days ago, I mentioned several attributes that I sought to find in the next leader of our football program, and Coach Pruitt meets all criteria", Fulmer said in a statement released on Thursday. After winning two national championships as the defensive backs coach under Nick Saban during his first stint at Alabama, he moved on to become defensive coordinator at Florida State.
Pruitt spent two seasons as Georgia's defensive coordinator from 2014 to 2015 before returning to Tuscaloosa for the 2016 season.
Twice Pruitt has been named a finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes annually to the top college football assistant coach.
Pruitt can net $300,000 for winning the SEC Championship game and an additional $500,000 if he leads the Volunteers to a national championship. Pruitt doesn't fall in that category, but it's hard to imagine Vols fans being too upset at a hire with his background of winning whose departure could hypothetically weaken Alabama at the same time.
An unprecedented coaching search has finally come to an end at Tennessee. "I see him getting talent to Tennessee".
Tennessee was close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano on November 26 before that deal fell through amid a public backlash.
