    That's my point. Pruitt has never been a head coach anywhere so it's impossible to compare. I posted that I thought Pruitt was an upgrade over Schiano due to his 68-67 record at Rutgers and 11-27 record with Tampa Bay where he was hated by practically every player and ran out of town.
    In this case I'll take the unknown.

    I certainly don't recall Pruitt's name being mentioned either. Not once.

        Pruitt was the first guy Miss State called Ox. Offered and he turned them down.

        Oh. Then I stand corrected - he was universally sought after.

          They should have gone after coordinators from the get go. No established head coach wants to ruin his career, might as well con a coordinator into thinking he can save that train wreck.

              The Vols the gift that keeps on giving 365 days of the year. Kind of like the jelly of the month club.

                I am ready, willing and largely unqualified to be your DC for a mere $500k, 3 years guaranteed. I’d even take LB coach at $200k as long as I get to recruit New Orleans. Your high octane offense will get the ball back VERY quickly. Just don’t punt.

                  Did you know that not only did Fulmer stab his HC & Mentor Johnny Majors to snake the HC job away from him, they are from the same high school (Franklin County, TN) and are two of the most famous alumni of that school. (Most famous is probably John Templeton, founder of Templeton Funds.)

                  Majors had heart surgery just before the start of of the 1992 season. Fulmer led the team while Majors was out and is rumored to have been involved in shoving Majors out. Majors was a Spurrier-type figure at Ut, a Heisman runner-up, 10-1 his senior year & finished #2.

                  Especially with Pruitt being a notoriously toxic and abrasive individual, the possibility for chaos is enormous. OTOH, Pruitt is the most competent of the 3 names mentioned.

                  @ClowESPN: Sources tell ESPN that Tennessee is in the process of trying to finalize a deal with Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt after offering him the job earlier in the day. Vols also interviewed Auburn DC Kevin Steele and Georgia DC Mel Tucker.

                      This shouldn't be allowed.

                      @DanWolken: If the Pruitt to Tennessee deal goes though, Jimmy Sexton will represent 10 of the 14 SEC head coaches
