Pruitt became the 26th coach in Vol foot all history on Thursday evening when he was introduced at this press conference. The former Alabama defensive coordinator has led four Top 10 defenses over the past five seasons in college football.
Pruitt has been a part of four national championships, three of which during his first stint at Alabama as a secondary coach and defensive assistant (2009, 2011-2012). During his only season at Florida State, Pruitt’s defense led the nation in points allowed per game and the Seminoles won the national title (2013).
