Former JUCO coach of the year joining Jeremy Pruitt’s Tennessee staff

The Tennessee Volunteers recently parted ways with RB coach Robert Gillespie, leaving an open spot on new coach Jeremy Pruitt’s staff.

Apparently, Pruitt and the Vols have dipped into the JUCO ranks to fill the spot, as former ASA College head coach Joe Osovet announced he was joining the Tennessee program.

Osovet announced the move on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon, as you can see below:

One of the first items on Pruitt’s list should be to tell Osovet it’s “Rocky Top” and not “Rockey Top,” but otherwise, it seems like a good hire.

Osovet was named USA TODAY’s JUCO coach of the year back in 2014 while with Nassau Community College. Whether he serves as the Vols’ new RB coach or in a different role remains to be seen.
