On Monday, reports began to surface that the Georgia Bulldogs were looking to fill their open defensive coordinator slot with Florida State’s Jeremy Pruitt. On Tuesday, Bruce Feldman of CBS gave his stamp pf approval on the report of the Dawgs looking to bring Pruitt back to the SEC.

Pruitt spent one season at the helm of the defensive unit at Florida State where he took a relatively young group and turned them into one of the more ferocious defenses in the nation, helping the ‘Noles win their first national title since 1999.
Before this past year in Tallahassee, Pruitt spent six years in Tuscaloosa with the Alabama Crimson Tide and Nick Saban, a fact that was evident when you saw how well the FSU defense played this past year.
Georgia is after Pruitt following the departure of former defensive coordinator Todd Grantham to the Louisville Cardinals to work with new coach Bobby Petrino.
Bringing back Pruitt to the Southeastern Conference to fill that void would be a huge win for Mark Richt and the rest of the Georgia program.
