  • Sources UT finalizing deal with Jeremy Pruitt to be new head coach

A deal to make Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt the next head football coach at Tennessee, has been finalized, according to ESPN.

WVLT Sports partner Volquest.com reports the new Tennessee head coach has built a legacy of expert recruiting throughout his coaching career.

This season was his second stint as an assistant coach with the Alabama Crimson Tide, working previously as the defensive backs coach under Nick Saban from 2010-2012. He also served as defensive coordinator at Georgia from 2014-15.

Cummings told Gowdy in his letter that he found the witness "authentic, credible and reliable". Flynn's lawyer did not respond to a request for comment on the latest claims.

Twice Pruitt has been named a finalist for the Broyles Award, which goes annually to the top college football assistant coach. Last year, Pruitt's defense led the nation in scoring defense, giving up just 13 points per game. 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. "I see him getting talent to Tennessee". He will also continue to coach the Crimson Tide defense in the College Football Playoff. Numerous names emerged throughout the process, including Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, who reportedly accepted the job. This marks Tennessee's fourth coaching search since Fulmer was forced out in 2008.

Currie met last week with Washington State's Mike Leach and was forced out the next day. After three years in that role, Pruitt became Alabama's defensive backs coach, reporting directly under Smart. Tennessee has hired Pruitt as its head coach on Thursday, Dec. 7, 2017, capping a tumultuous search that cost an athletic director his job as the Volunteers attempt to recover from one of their most disappointing seasons. In fact, according to a list of salaries released by USA Today earlier this year, he would actually rank No. 73 among college head coaches.
