Georgia assistant Kevin Sherrer reportedly candidate for jobs at Alabama, Tennessee

Tennessee reportedly “finalizing deal” with next head coach

University of Tennessee's Chancellor Beverly Davenport and Director of Athletics Phil Fulmer will hold a press conference Thursday at 6:05 p.m. ET in the Peyton Manning Locker Room to introduce Jeremy Pruitt as Tennessee's next head football coach.

Pruitt spent two seasons as Georgia's defensive coordinator from 2014 to 2015 before returning to Tuscaloosa for the 2016 season.

The Rainsville, Alabama native was a finalist for the 2013 and 2016 Broyles Award, given each year to the best college football assistant coach.

Fulmer interviewed Pruitt on Monday in Dallas and then again Wednesday in NY. Last year, Pruitt's defense led the nation in scoring defense, giving up just 13 points per game.

We've seen these kind of hires work out greatly for some, including defending national champion Clemson with Dabo Swinney, but fail other times.

Tennessee's coaching search has been fraught with controversy and drama since the school fired Butch Jones after the season, with much of the hoopla surrounding Greg Schiano. Then Tennessee went after Purdue head coach Jeff Brohm, but it's unclear if there was any truth to that, so the next coach in line was N.C. State's Dave Doeren who also turned down the job.

Tennessee has won six national titles and 16 SEC crowns.

Tennessee opened this season in the AP Top 25 but ended up winless in SEC competition for the first time since the league formed in 1933. Like Kirby Smart two years ago, Pruitt is expected to juggle both roles - Vols head coach and Alabama DC - during the Tide's playoff run. The Tide are the fourth seed this year.

Pruitt, who was a defensive back at MTSU (1993-94) and Alabama (1995-96) also appeared on the MTV TV series Two-A-Days while he was an assistant coach at Hoover High School in Alabama.

There is one coach that thinks Pruitt is the right man for the job: his former boss, Nick Saban.
