Coaches jumping off like rats on a sinking ship. What’s going on here?
Its not coincidence that these are "underperformers" on the recruiting front.

Earlier I posted that Sherer and Rumph needed to be shown the door. Neither had done much in the recruiting area and the program needs players. Of course, VN attacked saying I didnt know what I was talking about.....well, guess who are gone....

Any ideas for who his replacement will be yet? Jerrod Mayo or Kevin Simon if we go the VFL route
It'll more than likely be Shelton Felton. He was a QA at UT in 2018, so Pruitt is familiar with him. Plus, it looks like he would have played at Troy with Ansley for two seasons. Should be really good at recruiting in GA since he coached high school down there for multiple seasons. He also coached under Propst. I'm a fan of the potential hire.

I think this is a major factor. Pruitt wants to put on more steam in recruiting. He knows he has to start bringing 5*talent in on defense to win the SEC. Recruiting by the coaches that are leaving has been rather lackluster.

Pruitt knows we lost some names this year on the recruiting trail.. he’s making sure it doesn’t happen again. That being said 3 in a weekend does seem like a lot but he knows what he’s doing.

I know that you said it as a joke, but it's clear that CJP is shedding coaches who are not good recruiters. All of these moves are geared to get recruiting to the next level. I think we all knew it was coming, but seeing it in reality is a bit amazing. It's interesting that all the key pieces of the staff are locked in. I expect CJP to have the next hire in place by the end of the day.
