Tennessee names Jeremy Pruitt head coach

Tennessee has hired Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as its new head coach.

Pruitt, 43, has been the defensive coordinator with the Crimson Tide for the past two seasons. Alabama is ranked first nationally in scoring defense this season and second in total defense.

Pruitt intends to stay with the Crimson Tide through the College Football Playoff. Fourth-ranked Alabama plays No. 1 Clemson in the Sugar Bowl on New Year's Day.

A two-time Broyles Award finalist as the top assistant coach in college football, Pruitt served as a defensive backs coach in Tuscaloosa from 2007-2012 before being named as the defensive coordinator at Florida State in 2013. He then was the defensive coordinator at Georgia in 2014-15 before returning to his alma mater.

Pruitt becomes the fifth head coach at Tennessee in the past 11 years and 26th overall.

He replaces Butch Jones, who was fired after posting a 34-27 overall mark, including 14-24 in SEC play, during a five-year span.
