Georgia has found its new defense coordinator at the same place it found head coach Mark Richt. The school has hired former Florida State defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt as the Bulldogs' new DC. He replaces Todd Grantham, who defected to Bobby Petrino's coaching staff on Sunday.

Pruitt joined Jimbo Fisher's coaching staff at FSU in 2013, and helped Fisher lead the Seminoles to win over Auburn in the BCS title game earlier in the month. He had previously been defensive backs coach at Alabama from 2010-2012, and helped lead the Crimson Tide to two straight BCS titles in 2011 and 2012 as a part of Nick Saban's coaching staff.

Pruitt was also on the coaching staff of Hoover High School 2004-2006, and appeared on the MTV reality series Two-a-Days, which documented the lives of the members of the Hoover High Buccaneers football team.
