Tennessee Football steals another Alabama assistant coach

Tennessee Football may have found gold in Jeremy Pruitt, so the Vols are going back to Tuscaloosa as they get another Alabama coach to Knoxville.

Tennessee football had a decision to make once strength and condition coach Craig Fitzgerald left Rocky Top for the Big Apple. They ultimately promoted from within giving the job to A.J. Artis, but the Vols aren’t done putting together the strength and conditioning coaching staff.

Jeremy Pruitt has dipped back into the well of Alabama assistant coaches to fill in the hole in the strength and conditioning staff.

Pruitt filled in the hole in the coaching staff with longtime Alabama strength and conditioning assistant coach Kindal Moorehead, first reported by David Ubben of The Athletic.

Moorehead has been with Alabama since the beginning of his coaching career in 2010 and played there during his days in college football, but Pruitt was able to steer Moorehead away from his alma mater.

This isn’t the first coach that Tennessee has stolen from Nick Saban, and it probably won’t be the last, but it’s interesting to see Pruitt go back to Tuscaloosa to get an assistant coach.

Moorehead could’ve been the Giants’ strength and conditioning coach but Fitzgerald won over the G-Men. It only makes sense that Moorehead comes to Knoxville since he didn’t get the job.

Since Pruitt arrived in Knoxville, he’s been working to get Tennessee back to the mountain top. Something they’ve failed to do since 1998, and he’s done a pretty good job so far.

With his experience at Georgia, Florida State, and Alabama, he offers championship experience and knows how to build a program from the ground up, which is exactly what he was tasked with.

Pruitt is building a program that he knows. A program similar to what has been built in Alabama, and he’s doing it with some of Saban’s assistants by his side.
