Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt to accept the same position at Georgia

According to multiple reports, Florida State Seminoles defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will accept the same position with the Georgia Bulldogs after just one season at the helm of the defense in Tallahassee.


Pruitt came over to Florida State this past offseason after spending six seasons in Tuscaloosa with Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide, where he helped collect three national championships.

Then, obviously, he helped construct one of the better defenses in the nation this past season in helping lead the Seminoles to their first national championship since 1999.

Pruitt heads off to Georgia to join former Florida State offensive coordinator Mark Richt after their former defensive coordinator, Todd Grantham, recently accpeted the same position with Bobby Petrino and the Louisville Cardinals.

This season in Tallahassee was Pruitt’s first as a coordinator, but again, it was a very successful one in which he built an SEC-type defense that helped end the SEC’s BCS title winning streak.
