Jeremy Pruitt Reportedly Finalizing Contract to Become Tennessee Head Coach

Update at Tennessee Phillip Fulmer has his candidates
     
     
       By Scott Roussel

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.

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.

Martin has been the offensive coordinator for USC for the last two years, and he's been on staff with the Trojans since 2012. He's the sixth former Saban assistant to take a head coaching position in the SEC, following Dooley, Will Muschamp, Jimbo Fisher, Jim McElwain and Kirby Smart. Both of Pruitt's defenses as Alabama's defensive coordinator have led the country in scoring defense.

Has Tennessee's coaching search finally ended?

This would be at least the second meeting with Pruitt, according to GoVols247.

Both of them came in the Carabao Cup fixtures against Burton Albion and Swansea City. "I think Luke Shaw's exactly the same". United don't have many natural left-back options to call upon, with Ashley Young now doing a decent job in the position.

He named his son, born in May, after former Alabama linebackers Ryan Anderson and Reuben Foster.

As I have previously reported, Fulmer wants to see a coach hired in time to begin making recruiting visits on behalf of the Vols this weekend.

The son of legendary high school coach Dale Pruitt, Pruitt was an assistant coach in the high school ranks before catching on with Alabama in 2007 as Saban's director of player development. Then, Tennessee saw a number of possible candidates either take new jobs or reaffirm their commitment to their current school. The school and Schiano agreed to a deal on November 26 but Tennessee backed out after a ridiculous level of fan backlash against the deal.

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.

For many, the twists and turns throughout the search for Butch Jones' replacement were emblematic of the internal turmoil that has plagued the football program.
