Report: Jeremy Pruitt Mulling Offer to Become Head Coach at Mississippi State

NCAA Football: Fresno State at Alabama Marvin Gentry-USA TODAY Sports

Aaron Suttles reported today that Jeremy Pruitt has interviewed for the Mississippi State head coaching position vacated by Dan Mullen’s departure to Florida.

University of Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has interviewed for the head football coaching vacancy at Mississippi State and emerged as a candidate for the Tennessee opening, The Tuscaloosa News has learned.

Pruitt, in his second season of running UA’s defense, is one of Mississippi State’s top candidates. He is also on a list of coaches being considered by Tennessee.

A couple of prominent Mississippi State sites seem to concur, and in fact are reporting that Pruitt has an offer on the table.

That first link is John Bond, longtime booster whose name you may remember from a scandal about seven years ago involving a certain quarterback and $180k. In any event, Saban is probably already preparing a short list for an upcoming coordinator search.
