Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
I'm really surprised FSU is willing to gamble on a guy with no experience as a DC at a major college. No knock on Pruitt and I think he'll be a great coach someday but I would think FSU would put more of a premium on experience.
Also if Pruitt has success at FSU and Kirby Smart leaves Bama after the 2013 or 2014 seasons, Saban might come calling with the lure of Bama's DC job, and Pruitt wouldn't turn that down. FSU could find themselves in this same situation a year or two from now.
TRADITION IS THE FOUNDATION GREAT PROGRAMS ARE BUILT UPON.
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
I'll go ahead and start the Jack-Del Rio-to-Alabama rumors right now.
Oh, and Dooley back as Recruiting Coordinator, and Cris Carter as WR coach.
