Jeremy Pruitt set to cash in as Tennessee coach

Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will become the next head coach at Tennessee, according to multiple reports.

Tennessee is hiring Pruitt after their search failed to land big names such as Gary Patterson, Chris Petersen and Mike Gundy.

Sherrer and Pruitt both joined Georgia's staff prior to the 2014 season. Pruitt, who was not retained when Kirby Smart took over Georgia's football program in 2016, has been Alabama's defensive coordinator the past two seasons.

This season was Pruitt's second stint as an assistant coach with Saban the Alabama Crimson Tide. Under Pruitt, Alabama ranked No. 1 nationally in scoring defense, No. 1 in yards per play and No. 2 in total defense in 2017.

Instagram is testing a standalone app for direct messaging
The app is now available today in six countries: Chile, Israel , Italy , Portugal, Turkey, and Uruguay, on both, iOS and Android. As of April 2017, Instagram Direct, still married to the Instagram app, had around 375 million active monthly users.

Throughout his impressive time as an assistant coach, Pruitt has coached 34 National Football League draft picks.

For Volunteers' athletic director Phillip Fulmer, he should look no further than sophomore linebacker Mack Wilson as to how much Pruitt cares about the team he coaches. He agreed to a six-year deal that will pay more than $3.8 million annually. Before that he served as the defensive coordinator at Georgia from 2014-15 and at Florida State in 2013.

Pruitt has been Alabama's defensive coordinator since 2016. That means he will basically be working two jobs, game planning for the Tigers while also recruiting and putting together a coaching staff at Tennessee.

Considering how awful this search has gone for the Vols, I think the hire of Pruitt is a home run.

Google Pulls YouTube From Amazon Devices
Sans YouTube, Amazon looks to be banking on its in-house services and against the Chcolate Factory's built-in customer base. Amazon and Apple have been in a similar brawl since 2015 stemming from the site kicking out the Apple TV from its listings.

Pruitt has been one of the best defensive coordinators in the country over the last several years, building a 128-31 record as a two-time Broyles Award Finalist and assistant coach.

This will be Pruitt's first head coaching opportunity after a long career as an assistant.

Pruitt was also a recent finalist for the Mississippi State head coaching position, but the Bulldogs hired Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead on November 28.
