Jeremy Pruitt is signed, sealed and delivered… at less than the going rate.
New Alabama defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will save the program a little cash.
Though he’ll be one of the highest paid defensive coordinators in the country, his salary will be considerably less than his predecessor. The deal approved Tuesday will pay Pruitt $1 million a year and spans the next three seasons.
Former Alabama defensive coordinator Kirby Smart made $1.5 million last season as the highest-paid assistant in the nation.
Honestly, given the warm feelings between Pruitt and McGarity, I’m surprised he’s making as much as he is in Tuscaloosa. Thanks, Nick.
