In terms of stamps of approval, Nick Saban’s is one you’d like to have.
Saban’s run at Alabama has been impressive, but one of the most impressive aspects of his time with the Crimson Tide has been the number of assistants that have gone on to become head coaches.
While not every Saban assistant has gone on to be successful, there certainly is a growing list of coaches linked to Saban that are doing great things. Jeremy Pruitt will hope to join that list in the future.
Pruitt has spent the past two seasons working as Saban’s DC at Alabama, and he now takes over for the Volunteers in Knoxville. The road ahead is certainly not an easy one following Butch Jones’ tenure and the ensuing fallout, but Pruitt definitely receives the Saban stamp of approval.
Tennessee Football tweeted out a graphic of Saban’s comments on Pruitt Thursday, and he definitely believes Pruitt will do a great a job:
