Pruitt was Georgia's defensive coordinator in 2014-15 before returning to Alabama.
It was being reported that Tennessee coaches on the road recruiting had been called back to Knoxville with word that Pruitt's hiring would be officially announced Thursday. Under Pruitt Alabama gave up an average of 11.5 points a game this season and 11.8 points last season. That was his first job in major college football after spending the previous seven years as a high school assistant coach.
Pruitt replaced Georgia coach Kirby Smart as Alabama's defensive coordinator in 2016. Last year, Pruitt's defense led the nation in scoring defense, giving up just 13 points per game.
There was no early signing period at that time and the program Smart was inheriting from Mark Richt was on much more stable footings than what the next Vols' head coach will take over.
