Vols Football Rumors: Jeremy Pruitt Emerges As ‘Strong Candidate’

-

The latest Tennessee Vols football rumors suggest the program could finally be closing in on its replacement for head coach Butch Jones.

After what has turned out to be a disastrous coaching search thus far, multiple reports indicate Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is emerging as a top candidate for the job.

Bruce Feldman of FOX Sports 1 confirmed the rumors on Wednesday morning on social media.

The 43-year-old Pruitt joined Alabama in 2016. Prior to his time in Tuscaloosa, the defensive coordinator spent time leading defensive units at Georgia and Florida State. During his lone season with the Seminoles in 2013, Pruitt was a finalist for the Broyles Award, given annually to the nation’s top assistant coach. He was once again a finalist for the award in 2016 with the Crimson Tide.

Pruitt brings with him a brilliant defensive mind that is familiar with the SEC.

We could learn by the end of the day whether the Volunteers and new athletic director Phillip Fulmer finally have their man.
