    Jeremy Pruitt to FSU as DC

    Being reported by Chris Walsh of BOL. Pruitt is local and I had heard this was happening earlier today. I wish him the best of luck.

    Hate to lose him as a coach but more so on the recruiting trail.

    Re: Jeremy Pruitt to FSU as DC

    It's pretty much climbed out of the rumor pool, unless he has a last-minute falling out with Jimbo. I hope it's not just too big of a bite for him at his age. Sometimes, it just doesn't work out for older assistants working under a younger guy. I don't think it's helped Lane Kiffin, even if his older dad has been on board until this year...

    I hope they are just over-confident after landing a new DC, but they seem to think they're going to poach Burton Burns and Lance Thompson as well.

    Since this info seems legit now I guess its ok to share that I was also told that he is looking to bring Coach Sal and Tyrone Nix in at FSU as part of his defensive staff.

    Sounds like Jimbo recognizes he has defensive problems and trying to spend his way out of it.

    Good for him. A well deserved promotion.
    The question is, who's going to replace him? we need someone who can recruit well in the area coach Pruitt covered. I hope this does not affect our chance of getting Tunsil.

    He was the lead recruiter on him. Tunsil seemed to not like the fact that Alabama assistants get promotions every offseason. That's why he is high on Georgia.

    I just hope all these rumors and interviewing has not gotten us out of focus. Young men don't like to feel like they are being abandoned. Don't know if ND has had these type distractions or not. I feel sure though that CNS will right the ship next week and the Tide will be high come Jan 7.

    Hard for me to believe that Jimbo has hired him as his coordinator- he wanted him for his recruiting-that I am assured. He has only been a full time assistant for a short time. surprising hire here.

    Surprising hire, most don't hire a DC simply for recruiting gains. I think this gives more credence that Kirby isn't leaving soon.

    Good for Coach Pruitt!

    I don't get some of the hand-wringing over this. With our success and the way CNS develops his coaches this is bound to happen every year. Some more than others. In no way does this affect our state of mind or readiness come Jan. 7th.
