The Tennessee football program will have its hands full in Jeremy Pruitt’s first season. Tough teams coached by tough coaches. We rank them in this post.
There is no denying that the Tennessee football program isn’t what it used to be. Back in the glory days, The Vols were the team to beat in the SEC. Teams feared them, especially when playing at Neyland Stadium.
There is also no denying that it is going to take awhile for Jeremy Pruitt to make Tennessee great again. Last season was the worst season in program history with a 4-8 record. The four wins came during non-conference play. The Vols won zero games in the SEC last season. However, Pruitt might just be the man for the job.
So far he has done everything right compared to Butch Jones. Number one he looks like a coach and acts like a coach. Secondly, he speaks like a coach and not a car salesman. And, number three he teaches like a coach or at least it appears he is teaching well. None of those things could have been said about Jones.
Coaching sometimes gets overlooked which is a shame because it is essential to success. Some coaches can create a dynasty…a.k.a. Nick Saban. Some coaches never pan out…a.k.a. Butch Jones. And, some coaches are just okay…a.k.a. Kirby Smart.
In this post, we are going to rank each of the coaches on Tennessee’s 2018 football schedule. We are going to use the report card system and give each coach an A through D grading.
