Tennessee fans react joyously after Jeremy Pruitt hire

CBS affiliate WVLT reported Thursday morning that Tennessee has hired Pruitt, and will introduce him during a press conference later in the day.

Pruitt's teams put up impressive defensive numbers, often ranking in the top 10 in the country in points and yards per game. Over the years, Pruitt has managed to land an all-star list of commitments for Alabama, Georgia and Florida State from the likes of RB Derrick Henry, RB T.J. Yeldon, DB Jalen Ramsey, LB Dylan Moses, DE Lorenzo Carter, LB Mack Wilson, LB Reggie Ragland, LB Roquan Smith, LB Ryan Anderson, LB C.J. Mosley and OL Alphonse Taylor. As an assistant coach, he has been a part of four national championship teams. Tennessee went 4-8 this season and set a school record for losses.

Minkah Fitzpatrick has been one of his star players the past two seasons after Pruitt replaced Kirby Smart as the Crimson Tide defensive coordinator.

Pruitt replaces Butch Jones as the head coach of the Vols after Jones was sacked on November 12.

World's largest Starbucks opens in Shanghai
Called the Starbucks Roastery Shanghai , the outlet measures an astounding 30,000 sq ft - that is nearly half of a football field. The handcrafted long bar, one of three on site, is aptly-named, as at 88 foot it's the world's longest coffee bar.

At long last, Tennessee has its next head football coach.

Gillespie is one of the best running backs coaches in the nation. "Probst thought Prattville was the better team, but "(Pruitt) schemes up the flawless plays and we block two punts that led to touchdowns. Following a successful run with the Tide that included two national championships, Florida State hired Pruitt away in 2013 and they claimed the national title. He started his collegiate career at Middle Tennessee before transferring to Alabama as a defensive back in 1995. He played at Alabama from 2008-12 (which means Pruitt coached him).

He has also had success on the recruiting trail, bringing in 11 five-star recruits (six as the primary recruiter) and 28 four-star recruits (15 as primary). Over the ensuing days, Tennessee reportedly offered the position to a number of coaches, including: Oklahoma State's Mike Gundy, Purdue's Jeff Brohm, North Carolina State's Dan Doeren and Washington State's Mike Leach.

Tennessee was close to hiring Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano in late November, but the deal fell through because of backlash from fans and supporters. Tennessee Chancellor Beverley Davenport gave Fulmer "full authority" to make the hire. Pruitt was a 2013 finalist for the Broyles Award.
