Florida State's Jeremy Pruitt to be Georgia's defensive coordinator

Multiple reports are confirming that Jeremy Pruitt is set to be Georgia's next defensive coordinator.

ESPN and the Atlanta Journal constitution are reporting that Jeremy Pruitt, defensive coordinator for Florida State's No. 1 ranked defense, has accepted the offer from Georgia to leave for the same position after spending just one year in Tallahassee -- his only FBS experience as a coordinator.

Florida State will now search for a new coordinator. Jimbo Fisher had recently secured a raise of $500,000 total for his coaching staff, so theoretically, Pruitt could have matched close to what Georgia is offering Pruitt, especially because it does not have to pay an offensive coordinator due to Fisher holding the title.

Given that Georgia has state income tax and Florida does not, and that FSU could have theoretically given Pruitt a sizable raise, the above tweet concerning Pruitt's good friend, Georgia offensive line coach Will Friend, may be quite meaningful.
