Jeremy Pruitt to be named Tennessee head coach

Then Tennessee turned to Washington State head football coach Mike Leach, who reportedly had a great meeting with then Tennessee athletic director John Currie, the deal was blown off as Currie was removed from his position and Phil Fulmer took over the athletic director position as well as the football coaching search on December 1.

Pruitt served as Alabama's defensive coordinator during the past two seasons, helping the Crimson Tide finish No. 1 in scoring defense and No. 2 in total defense in 2017.

Twice Pruitt has been named a finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes annually to the top college football assistant coach. Alabama led the nation in scoring defense and ranked second in total defense a year ago.

We've seen these kind of hires work out greatly for some, including defending national champion Clemson with Dabo Swinney, but fail other times.

The selection of Pruitt ends a coaching search that had become embarrassing for Tennessee as it dragged on. Once word leaked that Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano had been tabbed for the job, an outcry from alumni, fans, former players and politicians ultimately squashed the deal. 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. This marks Tennessee's fourth coaching search since Fulmer was forced out in 2008. It closed the year with a 42-24 loss to Vanderbilt, the fourth time in the last six years the Vols lost to the in-state rival they've historically dominated.

According to Low, Pruitt is expected to remain on Alabama's staff through the College Football Playoff.

According to Propst, Pruitt is among the most precise and detail-oriented assistants he ever worked with.

There is one coach that thinks Pruitt is the right man for the job: his former boss, Nick Saban.

Possible Tennessee recruits have already begun coming out in support of joining Pruitt's team.
