Kirby Smart Believes New Vols Coach Jeremy Pruitt Will Turn Around Tennessee

Atlanta, GA (WDEF-TV) Georgia head coach Kirby Smart worked with new Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt when they were assistants at Alabama, and Smart believes Pruitt has the mind set to turn around the UT program. Said Smart at SEC Media Days:”He was a big asset for us early on at Alabama that people didn’t realize. I don’t think people really recognized Jeremy until he went to Florida State and did it on his own. But I recognized early. I can remember after the Texas national championship game. There was a pressure we hit them with that was some different ideas that he had given us. That he had done before.” Smart went on to add:”I look at Jeremy very similar to myself in the way that we have grown in coaching and the development that we have had. We’ve been very fortunate to be around some really good coaches.”
