He will stay on with Bama through the playoff, but it will be interesting to see how the distraction affects them. Kirby Smart was hired by UGA at the end of 2105, and many think that took a big toll on Bama's defense against the Tigers in the Championship Game. Of course, one big difference is that they have 4 weeks to prepare for the Tigers this time rather than just one. Still, one would think that Pruitt will be preoccupied, having to split his time between recruiting for Tennessee, getting a staff together, etc. and preparing for the Sugar Bowl. We shall see!
