Vol Twitter has already decided who should be the next Tennessee coach
After just three seasons on the job, Jeremy Pruitt is reportedly out at Tennessee.
News of Pruitt’s departure from Tennessee is being reported by Pete Thamel of Yahoo Sports.
Pruitt finishes his time at Tennessee with a 16-19 overall record after finishing last season at 3-7.
Tennessee was picked to play in the Liberty Bowl this year but did not make it due to COVID issues within the program.
Tennessee’s lone bowl appearance during Pruitt was a Gator Bowl win over Indiana at the end of the 2019 season.
Now the big question on Rocky Top is, of course, who will be the next coach to lead the program.
Well, Vol Twitter has already decided on the coach it wants to come to Knoxville.
That would be Liberty’s, Hugh Freeze.
The former Ole Miss coach has a ton of support from Vol Twitter immediately following news of Pruitt’s departure:
Tennessee on Zoom: “Hey Hugh, can you hear us?”

I think it’s time for Tennessee to hire Hugh Freeze. #hirehugh

I don’t ask for much, but please let Hugh Freeze get the Tennessee job and have to play Bama, Georgia and Florida every year. https://t.co/MEkuxoM2Nb

Hugh Freeze/Billy Napier to Tennessee? Who else makes sense?

I’ll say it- Hugh Freeze would be the best choice.
– Offensive minded
– Beat Saban twice at Ole Miss
– Went 10-1 at Liberty this past season
Makes sense to me. Hire the guy. It doesn’t matter what the outside think. Do what’s best for Tennessee.

If Tennessee doesn’t hire Hugh Freeze now, they’re absolutely making the wrong decision
