Tennessee Reportedly Set To Hire Alabama DC Jeremy Pruitt, Ending Crazy Search

Legendary Hoover coach Rush Propst on expected Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt: 'I think he's ready.'

Jeremy Pruitt is set to receive a significant pay raise after agreeing to a six-year deal to become Tennessee's head coach.

Sources for NBC affiliate WBIR are now confirming that Jeremy Pruitt will be the next head football coach at the University of Tennessee.

Then Tennessee turned to Washington State head football coach Mike Leach, who reportedly had a great meeting with then Tennessee athletic director John Currie, the deal was blown off as Currie was removed from his position and Phil Fulmer took over the athletic director position as well as the football coaching search on December 1.

This season was his second stint as an assistant coach with the Alabama Crimson Tide, working previously as the defensive backs coach under Nick Saban from 2010-2012.

In the 2013 and 2016 seasons, Pruitt was one of five finalists for the Broyles Award given annually to the nation's top assistant coach.

Fulmer interviewed Pruitt on Monday in Dallas and then again Wednesday in NY.

A two-time all-state defense back at Plainview High School, Pruitt played college ball at Middle Tennessee State and Alabama in the mid 90s. Like Kirby Smart two years ago, Pruitt is expected to juggle both roles - Vols head coach and Alabama DC - during the Tide's playoff run.

At long last, the mother of all coaching searches is over. 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.

Possible Tennessee recruits have already begun coming out in support of joining Pruitt's team.

Currie met last week with Washington State's Mike Leach and was forced out the next day.

December 7 marked the end of a college football coaching search that even the most creative minds could not cook up.
