Bob Pruett retiring

Stepping down.

A loss to the program for sure. Pruett's fingerprints were all over this recruiting class in Hampton Roads and went a long way toward re-establishing our presence there. He wasn't going to be defensive coordinator this year as he was last year, but I was hoping he could leave a big mark on the team through a few classes' worth of recruiting efforts.

It sounds as though his wife is not doing especially well, health-wise. Best of luck to Pruett in his retirement. Not many coaches can stay for one year and be missed as strongly as Pruett will.
