Tennessee's first-year head coach, Jeremy Pruitt, is getting praised for showing "incredible class" following the Volunteers' blowout loss today.

Pruitt's team was crushed by No. 2 Georgia, 38-12, at Sanford Stadium in Athens, Ga.

The Volunteers' head coach made sure his assistants and players stuck around on the field after the game to congratulate the Bulldogs' players.

Pruitt and his coaches recruited many of Georgia's players.

"Led by Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt, Vols coaches stick around postgame to congratulate many of the guys (Dre Baker, D’Andre Walker) they recruited," Jesse Simonton tweeted.

Well done, coach.

Tennessee will look to rebound in two weeks against No. 10 Auburn. The Vols are off next weekend.
