Monday University of Tennessee Head Football Coach Jeremy Pruitt was fired. Sources say that his firing stems from an internal investigation from compliance violations and recruiting practices of student athletes.
The University of Tennessee has hired attorney’s Kyle Skillman and Michael Glazier to find a path for Coach Pruitt to get a lessened buyout or no buyout if evidence shows a for-clause termination.
Jeremy Pruitt’s firing comes as the fifth head coach for Tennessee to be fired after Phil Fulmer in 2008. Jeremy Pruitt now joins Lane Kiffin, Derek Dooley, and Butch Jones being unable to sustain a program.
