Sleep not on Jeremy Pruitt's to-do list while rebuilding Tennessee football

No. 6 Lady Vols lose first game this season after 79-76 overtime loss at No. 17 Texas A&M Sleep not on Jeremy Pruitt's to-do list while rebuilding Tennessee football

Calvin Mattheis/News Sentinel Alabama Crimson Tide defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt during the annual A-day game at Bryant-Denny Stadium on April 16, 2016.

"That's one thing I can say", said Sanders, who shares the Georgia's career interception mark with 16.

The problem was exacerbated Monday night. "There will be a time, probably in the next couple of days, where me and him may possibly sit down and see where things are at". "He doesn't need a whole lot of sleep, I can tell you that".

Though Pruitt faces a tougher task than Smart in revitalizing a Tennessee program that hasn't played in an SEC title game or won 10 games in a season since 2007, shortly before it pushed Phil Fulmer out the door, his current Alabama players think he'll have success.

No more balancing two jobs.

And after splitting duties between Alabama and Tennessee for a month, Pruitt belongs exclusively to the Volunteers now.

He chose the Vols over Alabama or Auburn. "Those are two people I can start something with and every time I play with them, I have a good time".

"Now mix in a signing date while you're practicing at another place, that's unfathomable and I think he's done a tremendous job of that and he's done it the right way, which that's what we do as coaches".

Pruitt met with the team Tuesday night.

"Some of the guys still hit me up from Georgia", Pruitt said.

Georgia players spoke first Saturday morning before Alabama and Pruitt followed them a half hour later so there was no known interaction.

The focus, Pruitt said, is starting to create "the right culture", establishing expectations and making sure the players understand them.

The past two days couldn't have gotten much better, though, in the eyes of the first-time head coach.

So once he landed in Knoxville on December 7, 2017, to be introduced as this storied program's 26th head coach, Pruitt didn't find time for a nap until after he had welcomed in Tennessee's first group of official visitors and continued his work inside the Anderson Training Center well into Saturday morning.

"It's been a long time coming for me", Pruitt said.

"I was at Alabama for the three weeks that (Georgia coach) Kirby (Smart) did it, so I got to watch him". "If we want to get what we want, then we better get started".

A dead period in college football recruiting ends today, which will allow Tennessee's staff to spend more time recruiting ahead of the traditional signing period that begins February 7.

During his first month as UT's head coach, Pruitt signed 14 players for the 2018 recruiting class.

Pruitt said even while he was working with Alabama during the College Football Playoff, assistants in Knoxville were sending him video of high school prospects and that Pruitt was approving scholarship offers for players.

Pruitt has previous connections to majority. Michael Schwarz/Special to the Democrat Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt aswers questions during a press conference on Thursday January 2, 2013 in Newport Beach, Ca. for the BCS National Championship Game.
