    Re: It looks like Jeremy Pruitt is Tennessee's new head coach

    The Alabama football story of the day deals with the impending departure of defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt.

    Announced as the*new head coach at rival Tennessee, Pruitt will stay with the Crimson Tide through the playoff run, Saban confirmed Thursday.*

    "I think it shows a lot of respect for the players on the team that worked hard to help us all have success this season," Saban said.

    No doubt they have influence, but at UGA the President has the final say and makes the decision, either directly or indirectly, in a high profile hire like football.

    It looks as though Kevin Sherrer will rejoin Pruitt in Knoxville as DC:

    The biggest lie you will read all week.

    Well, maybe biggest half lie. After he failed with his Schiano power play he was not involved in the search. He was pushed to the side.

    The day after Tennessee's long coaching search finally concluded, Jimmy Haslam commented on the process and insisted he was not involved.

    The Cleveland Browns owner and Tennessee booster said Friday he "had nothing to do" with the search, which ended Thursday with Jeremy Pruitt's hire.

    "I want to clarify something, and I want everybody to hear this: I had nothing to do with the coaching search at Tennessee. Nothing," Haslam said. "I know there's all reports that I was tremendously involved. I'm a huge backer and supporter of the University of Tennessee, as is our entire family. I was not involved in the coaching search at UT. Very delighted with the outcome. Have not met coach Pruitt, but coach Fulmer — a good friend of mine — and (UT booster) Charlie Anderson both speak very highly of him.

    "We're glad to have him at the university, but I was not involved in that search."
