When Butch Jones was hired as the head coach of the Tennessee Vols in late 2012, he promised to put together the best staff in America.
Jones’ promise proved to lack substance, as he was unable to attract elite assistant coaches.
His replacement, however, has proved capable of doing what Jones couldn’t do.
Jeremy Pruitt put together an impressive staff when he was hired in late 2017. After his first season, he made a few changes and put together an even better staff.
I don’t think there’s any doubt that Tennessee currently has one of the best coaching staffs in the nation. Some of the coaches that are ranked near the bottom of this list would easily be in the top five at other programs (even at some SEC programs).
Here’s how I rank Pruitt’s assistants heading into the 2019 season.
