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.

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.

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.
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.
