    It is quite a jump up for him, though. And his rise has been fast, as well.

    Re: Jeremy Pruitt to FSU as DC

    It was just a matter of time before he landed a DC gig somewhere. He was one of the few that Coach Saban kept off of Coach Shula's staff. The story I heard was that Coach Saban handed him a dry erase marker and told him he had 15 minutes to convince him to let him stay. An hour and half later he was still drawing up defensive schemes. His Dad is a good coach too, he just coaches for the enemy. Also heard that when Jeremy was playing at Alabama, Coach Stallings said if he could put Jeremy's head on a faster body, he would have the perfect college football player. I will say that he embarrassed our community when he was on Two-a-Days. There was an episode that showed him having Thanksgiving dinner with one of Hoover's players. He asked what "this" is. It was asparagus, and his reply was "We ain't got that on Sand Mountain". That stung a little.

    Best of luck and congrats coach Pruitt. Have a long and successful career, except against Alabama, of course.

    Jeremy Pruitt to FSU as DC

    Hate to see him go. He was on fire on the recruiting trail. DC would be a huge step for him though.

    Florida St. had a very good defense but lost Mark Stoops to Kentucky.

    What about bringing in Mickey Conn to replace him. Or moving Kirby back to DBs and bring back Sal

    Coach Saban most likely has a target.

    Re: Jeremy Pruitt to FSU as DC

    Interesting hire. From high school DC about 7 years ago to just a full time coach for the DB's 3 years. Sounds to me like Jimbo needed a glorified Recruiting coordinator.

    According to two reports, Alabama's third-year secondary coach will be the new defensive coordinator at Florida State.
    Known as one of the top recruiters on Saban's staff, Pruitt primarily has coached safeties in the past three years. After serving as an assistant coach at Hoover High School, he joined Saban's staff in 2007 as a director of player development.

    It would seem that replacing a coach with a former Bama player has not really worked well. See DuBose and Shula. I for one want the best coach not just someone with Bama ties.

    I'm pretty sure he was at Hoover before being hired by saban in 2007.

    I am happy for Coach Pruitt, but selifishly I don't like this. It's only a matter of time before we lose Smart. I didn't have any doubts that Pruitt was going to be our next DC after Smart leaves.
