New Tennessee coach Jeremy Pruitt is fresh off of winning a national title with Alabama, so hiring his full coaching staff has taken some time.
Now, though, he’s reportedly made his final hire, landing a WR coach who is currently at Memphis.
According to USA TODAY’s Dan Wolken, the Vols are going to add David Johnson to their staff moving into the 2018 season:

Johnson had spent the previous two seasons at Memphis, and before that coached at Tulane.
Interestingly, he was the high school coach of former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu back when the Honey Badger attended St. Augustine in New Orleans.
