A source close to the UT program tells KSR that Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt fired assistant coach Jimmy Brumbaugh during the game on Saturday. Pruitt let Brumbaugh go while the game was still being played, confirming it after it was over.
The official announcement of the firing didn’t come until the day after on Sunday when Pruitt said that “from a philosophical standpoint, things are just not a fit, and it just didn’t work out for us,”. Pruitt had been critical of the UT defensive line even before the beatdown they suffered at the hands of Mark Stoops and company which led to the dismissal of Brumbaugh, who was also the defensive line coach at Kentucky from 2013-16, not even eight months after he was hired back in February. Considering most of Tennessee’s issues seemingly stemmed from the offensive side on Saturday, the decision to fire Brumbaugh during the game is an unusual one.
