Report: Tennessee 'planning to hire' former Mississippi State staffer
Jeremy Pruitt is reportedly looking to do some shuffling on Tennessee’s off-field staff.
According to FootballScoop, Pruitt is ‘planning to hire’ Andrew Warsaw as his new Director of Football Operations. Warsaw held the same position on Joe Moorhead’s Mississippi State staff the past two seasons.
Warsaw was the NFL’s Director of Game Operations (2016-17) before joining Moorhead’s MSU staff in 2018. He also has administrative experience as the director of football operations at Purdue (2015-16) and three seasons as the operations coordinator at Arizona (2013-15). His duties included day-to-day operations, travel coordination, player personnel and recruiting logistics.
Tennessee staffer Todd Watson is the team’s current Director of Football Operations. Per FootballScoop, Watson won’t be leaving the Volunteers, but his title and role within the staff are being adjusted. Watson joined the UT staff after serving as Director of Operations and High School Relations for Troy from 2015-17.
