Jeremy Pruitt Alabama

According to a report by ESPN, Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt and the Volunteers are putting the finishing touches on a contract that will allow him to remain on the Crimson Tide staff as they prepare for the College Football Playoff and a semifinal date with Clemson.

Jeremy Pruitt hasn't even gone through his official introductory press conference as Tennessee's new head coach yet and he's already been working on putting together his staff with the Vols.

"Six days ago, I mentioned several attributes that I sought to find in the next leader of our football program, and Coach Pruitt meets all criteria" Tennessee athletics director Phillip Fulmer said in a statement.

Pruitt returned to the SEC in 2014 to be the Georgia defensive coordinator for two seasons before landing back in Alabama in 2016 and winning another championship.

Fulmer interviewed Pruitt on Monday in Dallas and then again Wednesday in NY. In 2013, his only season with the Seminoles, he constructed a unit that led the nation in scoring defense en route to another national championship.

The Patriots (10-2) didn't need Brady to be at his best to reach double-digit victories for the 15th straight season. Rookie Nathan Peterman would replace Taylor at quarterback following his knee injury.

With Pruitt gone, one possible replacement would be Tosh Lupoi who is in his third year as Alabama's outside linebackers coach.

One of the wildest coaching searches in college football history may be finally coming to an end. Numerous names emerged throughout the process, including Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, who reportedly accepted the job.

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

Currie met last week with Washington State's Mike Leach and was forced out the next day. The Tide are the fourth seed this year. In fact, according to a list of salaries released by USA Today earlier this year, he would actually rank No. 73 among college head coaches.
