The search for Tennessee's next head coach has been a debacle in every sense of the word but if reports are true, that search  could be coming to an end very soon.

According to ESPN's Chris Low, Tennessee is in the process of trying to finalize a deal with Alabama defensive coordinator and Rainsville native Jeremy Pruitt after offering him the job earlier on Wednesday.  Piggy backing off of that report fellow ESPN reporter Mark Schlabach said the school will name pruitt their new coach on Thursday barring any unforsene setbacks. 

The Vols reportedly also interviewed Auburn defensive Coordinator Kevin Steele and Goergia defensive coordinator Mel Tucker in recent days.
