Knoxville’s WATE-6 asked Pruitt about his familiarity with the Vols’ program, and Pruitt replied, ‘There’s plenty of Tennessee fans from where I’m from.”

Knoxville’s WBIR-TV asked Pruitt for his personal non-football favorites during its allotted time with the head coach in the Neyland Thompson Sports Complex:
