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.

False. He wasn't fired during the game. Good try though

I could be mistaken but isn't this the Jimmy Brumbaugh from Auburn that was best chop block buds with Chaz Ramsey? Again, could be wrong but I swear that was the partner in crime.

Yes, your brain functions poorly. Brumbaugh played DL at Auburn and played at Auburn about 10 years before Ramsey.

As I recall he also spent a few seasons at LSU. I believe as an assistant strength coach or assistant DL guy. I remember meeting him at a coaching clinic. He was a pretty cool guy.

Really unprofessional. Can't even let the guys get through the game with their coach? Pure emotion and that's why he'll never be successful

Good luck in hiring new coaches. Very unprofessional to treat anyone that way. Yes the D-line coach caused all those interceptions. Go figure.

Pruitt starting a trend early at UT, asst coaches leaving fast or getting fired midgame....watch his pool of replacement candidates shrink quickly and his current staff to move on at first chance. He has a rep as a d*ck, it’s o,aging out.
