The Vols were willing to pay big money for a successful power-5 coach (they made an offer to Gundy that would've made him one of the highest paid coaches in college football), but money wasn't enough to entice any of them to come rebuild Tennessee.
Chris Low reported that a press conference is slated for Thursday evening to introduce Pruitt as the next coach of the Vols.
Pruitt's success this season is particularly impressive given how hard Alabama's defense has been hit by injuries. He will also continue to coach the Crimson Tide defense in the College Football Playoff. Alabama will meet Clemson in the Sugar Bowl in one national semifinal game on January 1.
Pruitt reportedly sold Fulmer and Tennessee on his ability to build a great staff. The Crimson Tide are ranked first nationally in scoring defense and second nationally in total defense.
Pruitt left Alabama after the 2012 season to be Florida State's defensive coordinator in 2013 and helped the Seminoles win a national championship.
Pruitt is one of four former Nick Saban assistants serving as head coaches in the SEC. The Tide are the fourth seed this year.
He was a Broyles Award Finalist as the nation's top assistant twice and started his player career in the Volunteer State at MTSU. Once word leaked that Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano had been tabbed for the job, an outcry from alumni, fans, former players and politicians ultimately squashed the deal. Pruitt and Sherrer also coached together at Hoover High School from 2005-06 when Pruitt served as the defensive coordinator and Sheerer as a defensive assistant.
At long last, the mother of all coaching searches is over. Copeland wasn't even on the radar of the previous Tennessee staff, but as soon as it was announced Pruitt had landed the job, things changed in a hurry for the top-ranked receiver from the Sunshine State.
"Six days ago, I mentioned several attributes that I sought to find in the next leader of our football program, and Coach Pruitt meets all criteria", Fulmer said in a statement released on Thursday.

Trump demurred on Monday when asked whether he was trying to send Romney a message by encouraging Hatch to run again. Trump has been urging Hatch to run long before Romney entered the conversation, according to the senator's office.
We are a long way from having the votes in Congress to impeach, a vote that must happen on a bipartisan basis. Trump's actions may be upsetting to the party, but that talk of impeachment was premature.
