It continues to be indicated that Tee Martin could "likely be in position" to join the staff of multiple candidates as the Vols' offensive coordinator.
Tucker coached on National Football League staffs for nine seasons before being hired by Alabama as associate head coach and defensive backs coach in 2015. This year, Georgia ranks in the top-5 in the FBS in scoring defense (13.2 points) and total defense (270.9 yards).
Tucker is in his second season with the Bulldogs and now is helping prepare the team for its first appearance in the College Football Playoff. He went on to coach at Nebraska, the Carolina Panthers, and Baylor before he coached at Florida State and Alabama. Pruitt is now Alabama's DC. Pruitt is also regarded as one of the top recruiters in the SEC. He was initially there from 2007-12, the last three seasons as defensive backs coach. During the 2014-15 season returned to the SEC as a defensive coordinator for Georgia. The latter two have already had two interviews with new Vols athletic director Phillip Fulmer, per ESPN's Chris Low.
SMU head coach Chad Morris and Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables also are considered potential replacements for Butch Jones, who was sacked after compiling a 34-27 record in six seasons with the Volunteers.
