JJ Peterson commits to Tennessee during US Army All-American Bowl

Pruitt has also assembled most of his staff; it includes Georgia outside linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer and Florida's Chris Rumph as Tennessee's new defensive coordinator tandem; USC's Tyson Helton as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach; Colorado State's Will Friend as offensive line coach; VFL Terry Fair as defensive backs coach; and Tracy Rocker as defensive line coach.

The National Championship 26-23 overtime thriller was nothing compared to the excitement of the Tennessee Football program on Tuesday as they welcomed the new head football coach to campus. Calvin Mattheis/News Sentinel Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt during the annual A-day game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on April 16, 2016. "I think he was in a worse situation". Democrat FSU football's defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt speaks at FSU's Signing Day party on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 in Tallahassee, Fla. "The fact he had to deal with a signing day while he was there, I wouldn't wish that (on anybody)". Despite the injuries, Alabama had the top-ranked scoring defense in the country, held Clemson to six points in the College Football Playoff semifinal and shut down Georgia in the second half of the championship game.

Whenever Pruitt had a free moment away from practice or game planning, his sights were on Tennessee, whether that was hiring a coach or watching film on a prospect. Montgomery Advertiser Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt reacts during the game against the Western Kentucky Hilltoppers at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

"What was interesting, (recently) we're in a (Tide) staff meeting and they're starting to set up calls for (Nick) Saban", Pruitt said.

"I want a place that everybody feels comfortable coming to", Pruitt said. "... Love them. Great group of coaches and more importantly, actually REALLY good people".

Jeremy Pruitt is finally Tennessee's full-time head football coach.

"Most of the time after the games, you're kind of, you know, your adrenaline is going, so sometimes it's hard to go to sleep, at least for me", Pruitt said.

Even though Smart is working to ruin Pruitt's Alabama farewell, he had nothing but high praise for the job Pruitt has done in the last month.

"That's one thing I can say", said Sanders, who shares the Georgia's career interception mark with 16. "He's done it the right way".

"We've grown a lot as a team since coach Pruitt's gone", outside linebacker Lorenzo Carter said. We do this because of the kids.

He might want to figure out how to retain some coordinators, however, if he wants to make winning these national championship games a little easier again. So, it was an easy transition for them to continue to implement the same thing for the players. Pruitt was the Crimson Tide's director of player development in 2007-09 and was promoted to defensive backs coach in 2010-12. Though Pruitt will soon be off to Tennessee, he acknowledged that one way or another, a former Alabama defensive coordinator will have reason to celebrate.
