Jeremy Pruitt’s having a tough year leading the Tennessee football program.
The Volunteers are 2-5 on the season, having lost five straight games since starting the season with back-to-back wins. Pruitt, 46, is now 15-17 as the program’s head coach.
The former Alabama coordinator was told by a fan on Wednesday night to leave the Volunteers and go back to the Crimson Tide.
“When are you going to admit you’re not a ball coach and go back to Alabama?” a fan asked during the Vol Calls radio program.
Pruitt, to his credit, gave an honest response.
“Well Phillip, you gotta know I’m pretty hard headed right,” Pruitt said, per Trey Wallace of FOX Sports Knoxville. “So I do feel they’re things we can all improve on. I feel your frustration man, I am with you, I am frustrated too. But we’re working hard and we’re gonna continue to work hard to put a product out there you can be proud of, how bout that.”

Tennessee fans have to at least respect that Pruitt can admit the program isn’t at where it needs to be. However, that doesn’t mean much in the long run.
Pruitt needs to start winning games – fast.
