Then Tennessee turned to Washington State head football coach Mike Leach, who reportedly had a great meeting with then Tennessee athletic director John Currie, the deal was blown off as Currie was removed from his position and Phil Fulmer took over the athletic director position as well as the football coaching search on December 1.
Pruitt was officially announced as Tennessee's head coach on Thursday.
The new athletic director and former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer says Pruit had two qualities he was looking for in a head coach: a tough-minded defensive presence and a proven track record as a recruiter.
A former defensive back at Alabama, Pruitt served two different stints on the Crimson Tide staff under Saban.
Pruitt also was defensive coordinator for Florida State's 2013 national championship team, which led the nation in scoring defense. Being the "main man" on campus and steering the ship can turn even the best of coaches into a shell of their former self. After serving as the Bears' defensive line coach for four years, he worked as the defensive line coach and defensive run game coordinator at Washington from 2012-13.
Pruitt and Ekeler were on staff together at Georgia from 2014-15.

Then the school's athletic director, John Currie, was sacked last Friday, capping an embarrassing stretch for the once-proud SEC school.
Anyway, here's what we think Pruitt's staff could look like at Tennessee.
