UT Vols to introduce Jeremy Pruitt as next head football coach

UT Vols to introduce Jeremy Pruitt as next head football coach

Pruitt's success this season is particularly impressive given how hard Alabama's defense has been hit by injuries. Alabama will meet Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in one national semifinal game on January 1.

Pruitt has been a part of three other championships as well, helping guide Alabama to national championships (2009, 2011, 2012) as an assistant from 2007 to 2012 before leaving to take over as defensive coordinator at Florida State.

The Vols were willing to pay big money for a successful power-5 coach (they made an offer to Gundy that would've made him one of the highest paid coaches in college football), but money wasn't enough to entice any of them to come rebuild Tennessee. Saban is 11-0 in his career against former assistants.

Fallen Kingdom' Plot Details And Parody Video Raise Anticipation For The Trailer
As per EW, Fallen Kingdom will seem to focus more on saving dinosaurs than on running away from them - at least at first. That would be Chris Pratt's dino trainer Owen Grady and Bryce Dallas Howard's former park manager, Claire Dearing.

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. And now it appears that Pruitt is pursuing another Colorado State coach, and this coach is also a former Vol player and assistant. Prior to leading Alabama's defense, Pruitt was the defensive coordinator at Georgia (2014-15) and Florida State (2013). While also serving as the secondary coach, Pruitt helped guide Georgia's defense to the nation's No. 1 pass defense in 2015. Pruitt is now the fifth-highest paid assistant in the country, making $1.3 million a year.

According to Low, Pruitt is expected to remain on Alabama's staff through the College Football Playoff. If Alabama wins, it will move on to the College Football Playoff National Championship Game on January 8. Reuben Foster, Jonathan Allen and Jalen Ramsey are just a few of the players he has helped guide to the NFL. Pruitt and Sherrer also coached together at Hoover High School from 2005-06 when Pruitt served as the defensive coordinator and Sheerer as a defensive assistant.

The renowned recruiter and savvy defensive assistant was pegged by new athletics director Phillip Fulmer to lead Tennessee's turnaround, replacing Butch Jones, who was sacked on November 12.
