ESPN's Chris Low reports that Tennessee HC Jeremy Pruitt is expected to be allowed to serve as Alabama's defensive coordinator in the Playoff. After winning two national championships as the defensive backs coach under Nick Saban during his first stint at Alabama, he moved on to become defensive coordinator at Florida State.

In the 2013 and 2016 seasons, Pruitt was one of five finalists for the Broyles Award given annually to the nation's top assistant coach. Last year, Pruitt's defense led the nation in scoring defense, giving up just 13 points per game.

Pruitt is 43 years old and a native of Alabama.

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

An unprecedented coaching search has finally come to an end at Tennessee.

Tennessee was close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano on November 26 before that deal fell through amid a public backlash. North Carolina State's Dave Doeren agreed to a contract with the Wolfpack on Thursday after speaking with Tennessee officials.

At long last, the mother of all coaching searches is over. 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 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. Prior to his DC stays with those southeastern programs, Pruitt coached at Alabama - his alma mater - for six seasons, the final three as defensive backs coach. In fact, according to a list of salaries released by USA Today earlier this year, he would actually rank No. 73 among college head coaches.
