It's always a gamble unless the hire has a track record at a high major.

Even Jimbo Fisher is a suspect hire at that price. aTm paid for Chip Kelly, Nick Saban, Urban Meyer, and Jim Harbaugh results. Unfortunately, I don't think Jimbo is of that ilk. I know he's win a Natty, but was that because of Winston or Fisher? Was Auburn's Natty because of Newton or Chzik?

Who knows with Pruitt? Personally, with the recent miserable coaching hires, Tennessee would have been wise to pick a less of a wild card. Mike Leach is insane, but the guy wins. Pruitt sounds like a big roll of the dice.
