While the future of Jeremy Pruitt is up in the air, every indication seems to be that the rising defensive coordinator doesn’t have one at UGA.
In fact, there is “zero chance” the Bulldogs will retain Pruitt, according to NFL.com’s Chase Goodbread. This corroborates a previous report by Chip Towers of DawgNation, which stated that Pruitt being kept “is not expected to be a viable option,” in part because of his reputation within the UGA athletic department as a source of conflict. However, Bulldogs players remain in favor of keeping Pruitt, and his departure would likely affect a handful of recruiting targets and commitments.
On Wednesday night, it was reported by Josh Newberg of 247Sports that Pruitt would not follow former Bulldogs coach Mark Richt to Miami, and that he has interest in the defensive coordinator vacancy left by D.J. Durkin at Michigan.
