According to multiple reports, Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt is expected to be named the Tennessee coach on Thursday, and that could have a domino effect at Georgia.
Per ESPN’s Mark Schlabach, Georgia outside linebackers coach Kevin Sherrer could be a replacement for Pruitt, if and when he becomes Tennessee’s coach. ESPN’s Chris Low reported, however, that Sherrer is a name to watch for on Pruitt’s prospective staff at Tennessee.
Pruitt, Friend and Sherrer are very close friends. One SEC coach told me last night that Sherrer might also be a possibility to replace Pruitt as Bama's DC https://t.co/89ioBXW8Bv

Sherrer and Pruitt both joined Georgia’s staff prior to the 2014 season. Pruitt left following Mark Richt’s dismissal while Sherrer has remained on staff. Sherrer was the director of player development at Alabama from 2010-12, which came during Pruitt’s first run with the Crimson Tide.
According to Low, Pruitt is expected to remain on Alabama’s staff through the College Football Playoff. Alabama will meet Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in one national semifinal game on Jan. 1.
