Jeremy Pruitt from Alabama. If he installs a 3-4, they will be a transitional defense next year, and ripe for the picking IMO. Interesting hire.

Interesting hire indeed. Noles seem to be elated about the hire.
Hire should not strike fear into the hearts of anybody wearing Orange.
I sure hope he ends up being like sunseri...that guys defense was garbage
He's a Chad Morris type. Not far removed from Hoover. Great recruiter.
We know he is a very strong recruiter. Whether he can coach a defense remains to be seen.

BTW - You might remember Coach Pruitt from the former show on MTV called "Two-A-Days" that featured Hoover High School in Alabama. Coach Pruitt was the Hoover DC from 2004-2006.
Weak coaching hire.
Former position coaches at Bama becoming DCs elsewhere have had terrible results.
Probably is a great recruiter and Jimbo needs that after losing Gran and possibly Craig
Craig is staying at FSU as of Friday anyway. I haven't heard any in the industry call this a weak hire. Inexperienced; yes. People I've spoke to on this speak very highly of Pruitt. Time will tell how his defense performs.
They just added Sunseri as well.

Noles are guardedly optimistic, wouldn't say elated. We are well aware that this is a risky hire for Jimbo but with the addition of Sunseri there is a bit more ease. People say he is a great recruiter, but more importantly, we need him to be a great play caller but we won't find that out until next year. The boosters $$$ are stretched to the limit with the building of the IPF, new athletic dorms, and stadium renovations. It's hard to match your ability to pay top coaching salaries that some of the more experienced coaches are getting with all of the other financial obligations going on. This hire may well define Jimbo's tenure at FSU one way or the other.
I have two friends that play for Tennessee, and they say Sunseri is an absolute psycho. He even went as far as saying he wanted to shoot one of his players in the head.
That is obviously a horrible thing to say and nothing can really excuse it. The entire UT defense quit on him and that has to be pretty frustrating for a competitive guy like him as well.
Sunseri is like Kevin Steele...decent enough as a position coach, but should never be allowed to coordinate a defense again.
