Pruitt shows little patience for secondary mistakes

Georgia defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt hasn’t allowed much wiggle room for mistakes in the secondary, outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins said.

“I’ve seen people get fired for messing up two or three plays in a row,” Jenkins said. “I remember Pruitt yelling, ‘All, right, you’re fired. Somebody else get him off the field.’ That’s how quick it is with the DBs. You mess up a couple of plays, you’re out. He told Corey (Moore) one day, ‘You’re fired. Get off the field.’ He doesn’t mean it all the time. It’s definitely funny watching them in practice getting subbed in and out.”

Pruitt, who coaches the defensive backs, treats returning starters the same as walk-ons who have never taken a snap.

Even before spring practice.

Walk-on cornerback Aaron Davis said Pruitt held one-on-one meetings with every player to get to know each individually.

“It felt good,” Davis said. “It was like everybody got an equal opportunity, an equal time to meet him.”

@sravanthi_meka I’m told Family Violence is not a separate charge, but can impact the prosecution of the charge.
