Jeremy Pruitt happy about Tennessee players’ sideline confrontations
The Tennessee Volunteers are trying very hard to turn around a disastrous stretch in program history, and their head coach has no problem with a few sideline confrontations.
Some Volunteers players were seen scuffling on the sideline during the team’s 43-14 loss against Georgia on Saturday. Coach Jeremy Pruitt was not upset; on the contrary, he thinks the Vols need more of that kind of passion.
Jeremy Pruitt sounds pleased to hear some of his players got into it on the sidelines (notes he didn't see it).
"I got told about it I was fired up. I'm glad we got some passion around here. People want to do things the right way. So, we need a few more of those if you ask me."

Pruitt is fiery and demanding. We learned this after his first spring game. With the team off to a 1-4 start, he’ll take any sign of life he can get, even if it’s his own players scuffling with each other in full view of the public.
