Jeremy Pruitt calls out fans, players after Tennessee spring game

Jeremy Pruitt

New Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt is laying down the law as he takes control of the Volunteers.

Pruitt blasted some of his players after Tennessee’s spring game on Saturday, calling them out for a lack of effort.

Pruitt was not done there. While the Vols announced a spring game attendance of over 65,000, it was pretty apparently to everyone who saw that this figure was inflated, with numerous empty seats in the building.

Pruitt took notice and called out those in the fan base who weren’t there or weren’t fully behind the team.

The former Alabama defensive coordinator has been tasked with reinvigorating a moribund program and has gone to work to try to bring back the glory days. It certainly looks like his strategy is going to be one of tough love and calling it as he sees it, whether it’s toward players or even fans.
