Tennessee is expected to formally introduce Pruitt, who will earn roughly $4 million annually, as their head football coach later today.

"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", Fulmer said in a statement released on Thursday. Pruitt, 43, has never been a head coach but served as the defensive coordinator on two championship staffs (Florida State in 2013, Alabama in 2016) and also engineered a pair of Top 16 defenses on a pair of 10-win teams at Georgia. This could end up being a great hire by Fulmer. Last year, Pruitt's defense led the nation in scoring defense, giving up just 13 points per game.

Pruitt is the 26th head coach in Tennessee football history. Numerous names emerged throughout the process, including Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano, who reportedly accepted the job. Currie also flirted with Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm and N.C. State's Dave Doeren and Washington State's Mike Leach before being replaced by Fulmer.

Tennessee hasn't won the SEC Eastern Division since 2007 and hasn't captured a conference title since its 1998 national championship season.

At long last, the mother of all coaching searches is over. The Tide are the fourth seed this year.

According to Propst, Pruitt is among the most precise and detail-oriented assistants he ever worked with.

Volquest reports Pruitt began his career as a high school coach at multiple Alabama schools, working his way up into the college ranks through his ability to connect with people and his intense work ethic.
