Tennessee appears to finally have a new head coach, and it’s one Vols fans won’t protest.

Multiple reports on Wednesday night said that Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt has accepted the Tennessee head coaching job. Football Scoop reported that Pruitt is getting a six-year deal.

Trey Wallace says it’s a six-year deal worth around $4 million per season.

Pruitt is a much more desirable candidate to Tennessee fans than Greg Schiano, whom they previously reached a deal with that was cancelled. Pruitt is young, proven as a defensive coordinator in the SEC, and he played in the SEC.

The 43-year-old has been stellar replacing Kirby Smart as Bama’s DC. Prior to that, he did excellent work as Georgia’s DC under Mark Richt and Florida State’s DC under Jimbo Fisher.

Tennessee is undoubtedly hoping to get the same results Georgia got after they hired Smart away from under Nick Saban.

How the Coaching Carousel's Key Moves Might Affect Recruiting's Early Signing Period .
There is no precedent for this year’s coaching carousel.&nbsp;We won’t know until next fall what sort of on-field effect the new coaches will have on the programs they’re taking over, but in the shorter-term the changes are expected to shake up the recruiting landscape. For the first time this year, high school seniors will be free to sign National Letters of Intent in an early window that begins Dec. 20 and runs 72 hours. It’s not clear how many of these prospects will opt to use the early period; some will elect to wait until the traditional signing date on the first Wednesday of February.
