Jeremy Pruitt finalizing deal with Tennessee

Jeremy Pruitt finalizing deal with Tennessee

Not long after reports surfaced that Tennessee had offered Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt the position, more reports came out that Pruitt had accepted the offer and was finalizing the deal.

Fulmer, the legendary former Vols head coach, was hired as AD. And one of those questions has reportedly been answered.

It appears as though Tennessee is focusing in on a trio of SEC defensive coordinators: Alabama's Jeremy Pruitt, Georgia's Mel Tucker and Auburn's Kevin Steele.

If the parties don't hit an unexpected snag, Fulmer has done in six days what former AD John Currie failed miserably at since firing former coach Butch Jones on November 12 after a humiliating 50-17 loss at Missouri.

Chiefs suspend Marcus Peters against Raiders
Still, in spite of their slide, the Chiefs remain tied for first place in the AFC West with the Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers. However, the questionable behavior continued on the gridiron with Peters obvious lack of will to tackle during the game.

He's served as the Crimson Tide's defensive coordinator the past two seasons, doing so after being the DC at Florida State in 2013 and at Georgia from 2014-15. In 2013, his only season with the Seminoles, he constructed a unit that led the nation in scoring defense en route to another national championship. Sports CFB insider Pete Thamel, Pruitt has emerged as the front runner for the job. "You see that with the way guys have bought into new roles, and guys have been able to move around and play different spots".

Tennessee was set to hire Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano as head coach, but the deal fell through after fans and media protested.

Saban is the best coach in college football, and even he relies on the deepest pool of assistant coaches in the country.

The 43-year-old assistant had also previously worked for the Tide as a defensive assistant from 2007-12 and as a graduate assistant in 1997, as well as a high school assistant throughout the state of Alabama from 1998-2006.
