UT Offers Head Coach Position To Alabama DC Jeremy Pruitt

Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has reportedly emerged as the favorite to land the Tennessee head coaching job, according to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel.

Pruitt was Georgia's defensive coordinator in 2014-15 before returning to Alabama.

He was previously in the running for the Mississippi State coaching vacancy that was filled by former Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead. Should the Vols hire him, he would be the sixth former defensive coordinator leading a team in the SEC East - the third to hold that role under Nick Saban (Will Muschamp, Kirby Smart). Both of Pruitt's defenses as Alabama's defensive coordinator have led the country in scoring defense.

Pruitt's hiring would end a wild ride for the Tennessee coaching search.

Not surprisingly, Pruitt took what was already an elite Alabama defense under Smart and helped it maintain its standing.

Keep in mind Pruitt had to replace Marlon Humphrey, Reuben Foster, Ryan Anderson, Jonathan Allen, Tim Williams and Eddie Jackson, all of whom were selected in the 2017 National Football League draft. Pruitt may need a little longer to turn the Volunteers into a national title contender.

Fulmer has placed a priority on finding a defensive coach, Low reports, and Pruitt is also regarded as a top-flight recruiter. Dooley coached with Saban at LSU and with the Miami Dolphins.

Currie fired former UT head coach Butch Jones 25 days ago, and nothing went right. Less than a week after having the full-time job, Fulmer appears to have his coach. Per Schlabach, while he was contacted by Tennessee AD Phillip Fulmer, the two sides never reached the interview stage of the equation.

The 43-year-old assistant played college ball at Middle Tennessee before transferring to Alabama.
