After Sunday’s announcement that Georgia would be losing their defensive coordinator, Todd Grantham, to the Louisville Cardinals and Bobby Petrino, the Bulldogs are certainly going to look for a top-notch replacement.
According to Jeremy Fowler of CBS, they may be looking for someone specifically that’s about as top-notch as you can get at this point in Florida State’s Jeremy Pruitt, fresh off the Seminoles winning the BCS National Championship.
One name I’m hearing that Georgia might reach out to for its DC job: #FSU‘s Jeremy Pruitt.

Pruitt has only been with Florida State and Jimbo Fisher for one year, and it was a dominant one at that.
After coming over from Alabama where he was groomed by Nick Saban, Pruitt turned the Seminoles’ defense into one of the most dominant units in the country, ranking within the top three in much of the important statistical categories.
Landing Pruitt would certainly be a huge coup for Mark Richt and the Georgia program, especially since they could use the same type of defensive performance that the ‘Noles put out this season.
