The Tennessee Volunteers’ long coaching vacancy nightmare may have finally come to a merciful end. Tennessee is reportedly finalizing a deal with Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.
Pruitt, 43, played at Alabama and held various coaching jobs at Alabama before becoming defensive coordinator in 2016. Under Pruitt Alabama gave up an average of 11.5 points a game this season and 11.8 points last season. He has won two national championships as a member of the Alabama coaching staff and one with Florida State.
Now we wait to see if someone writes something bad on a large rock and one or both sides back out of this deal. Good luck to everyone involved.
