After previous reports surfaced that former Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt was in talks to join the Jets' coaching staff, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed that was not the case.

Pruitt was fired by the university on Jan. 18 after an internal investigation found evidence of recruiting violations. He went 16-19 in three seasons as the Vols' head coach,

Pruitt also served as Alabama's and Georgia's defensive coordinator from 2016 to 2017 and 2014 to 2015, respectively, leading to the thoughts of him joining the Jets' staff on the defensive side.
