Vols Football: Tennessee Hires Jeremy Pruitt As Head Coach


The long-running search for a new Tennessee Vols football coach has finally reached its end.

On Thursday morning, Chris Low of ESPN reported that Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has been named the new Tennessee head coach.

An official announcement is expected to take place at a press conference on Thursday night.

Low reported the news 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.
