Why Jeremy Pruitt shouldn't bring Kevin Steele to Tennessee

There have been some rumblings lately that Tennessee Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt could be interested in bringing Kevin Steele to Rocky Top.

Steele, who most recently served as Auburn’s defensive coordinator, played at Tennessee and had a couple of different stints coaching with the Vols.

In fact, Steele actually helped Pruitt land his first job with Alabama over a decade ago.

“He (Steele) called me one night and he asked me if I’d be interested in talking to Coach Saban,” said Pruitt in late 2018 .

I’m not sure being on the hot seat with Steele on staff would be a great position for Pruitt to be in.

And after what just went down at Auburn (the boosters rallying to fire Gus Malzahn and attempting to promote Steele to permanent head coach ), I certainly wouldn’t rule out a situation where Steele helps ease Pruitt out the door so he can get the job on an interim basis (with the hope of getting the full-time gig).
