After a well-publicized circus search, the Volunteers hired Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt on Thursday, per multiple VolQuest.com sources.

Tennessee is hiring Pruitt after their search failed to land big names such as Gary Patterson, Chris Petersen and Mike Gundy.

Pruitt, an Alabama native, has been on Nick Saban's staff at Alabama the past two seasons, directing one of the best defenses in the country.

Flu season soars in the United States, especially in the South
Individuals can contact the health department at 325-646-0554 for information about the cost of the flu vaccine for children. The number of flu vaccines given out at the Wichita Falls-Wichita County Public Health District is also up.

This season was Pruitt's second stint as an assistant coach with Saban the Alabama Crimson Tide. Alabama will meet Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in one national semifinal game on January 1.

During Pruitt's time as an assistant coach, he's been part of three championship teams (Florida State in 2013, Alabama in 2011-12). He agreed to a six-year deal that will pay more than $3.8 million annually.

Alabama ranks No. 2 in the nation in total defense, allowing just 257.8 yards per game this season.

GoVols247 reported that Athletics Director Phillip Fulmer met with Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt on Wednesday, and that Pruitt is expected to be named the next head UT football coach.

Considering how bad this search has gone for the Vols, I think the hire of Pruitt is a home run.

Pruitt has been Alabama's defensive coordinator since 2016. Following a successful run with the Tide that included two national championships, Florida State hired Pruitt away in 2013 and they claimed the national title.

LiAngelo Ball's "Gelo 3" Big Baller Brand Shoe Is In The Works
CNN has reached out to the White House regarding the receipt of any Big Baller Brand ZO2s but has not yet gotten a response. LaVar Ball, the boisterous and bombastic patriarch of three basketball-playing sons, has become a major marketing marvel.

In the last few days, Fulmer reached out to a number of potential coaches and interviewed several candidates, including Georgia defensive coordinator Mel Tucker, SMU head coach Chad Morris and Auburn defensive coordinator Kevin Steele. Pruitt has also coached 11 first-team All-Americans. Once word leaked that Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano had been tabbed for the job, an outcry from alumni, fans, former players and politicians ultimately squashed the deal. "I see him getting talent to Tennessee". He was also a Broyles Award finalist in 2016.
