Report: Jeremy Pruitt leaves FSU for Georgia’s defensive coordinator position

It appears that Georgia head coach Mark Richt made a splash in the search of the Bulldogs’ new defensive coordinator. On Tuesday it was announced that Richt had hired FSU’s Jeremy Pruitt to head up the same position for the Dawgs.

Pruitt worked under Nick Saban at Alabama from 2007-12. He was hired by Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher in 2013 as the Seminoles’ defensive coordinator. In his one season in Tallahassee, and first as a DC, Pruitt’s defense finished ranked No. 1 in the nation in scoring defense.

Pruitt will replace departed defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, who left for the same position with Louisville.
