And the place erupted when the new athletic director, Phillip Fulmer, introduced Pruitt.

Two weeks ago this would’ve been a strange sight, seeing as how John Currie was still the athletic director and that he wanted a coach with head coaching experience. But after the Greg Schiano fiasco, Currie was suspended from his job and Fulmer was named athletic director.

Pruitt was named coach on Thursday and has already begun to recruit and piece his staff together. Per reports, Kevin Sherrer, Georgia’s outside linebackers coach, will be the defensive coordinator and Ty Helton will be the offensive coordinator.
