College Football Rumors: Georgia may go after Florida State’s Jeremy Pruitt for open DC job

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.

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.

    I don’t see him doing that. He has a sweet gig now. He just won a NC and it would be a lateral move to Georgia. Good luck with your search Bulldogs.

      If the money is right…I don’t think its a lateral Ga’s offense when healthy is one of the best in the country and especially since they’re getting two of the nations top running backs in the recruiting class this year on top of Gurley and Marshall , Gurley being the best back in the nation right now.and all the receivers will be healthy…..then a should be much improved defense that was young and full of 4&5 star talent…GA is going to take the sec next yr and should be a strong contender for the national championship

  • Daniel Gorby

    I don’t see that happening. He is just getting settled in and happy at FSU, which is a better Football Program than Georgia

    The picture in this article looks more like Coach Randy Sanders and less like Jeremy Pruitt.

      Pretty sure that is Sanders.

    Picture is Randy Sanders, ‘Noles QB coach, not JP.
