Tennessee defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh has been relieved of his duties, according to a report from Austin Price of Volquest.com.

Brumbaugh’s firing comes just four games into his tenure with the Vols. Head coach Jeremy Pruitt hired Brumbaugh to his third-year staff following the departure of Tracy Rocker who is now at South Carolina in the same role.

Tennessee’s defensive line has struggled through four games this season. The Vols are allowing 148.75 rushing yards per game, eighth most in the SEC.

Brumbaugh signed a two-year contract with a base salary of $650,000. According to VolQuest, the buyout consists of the remaining base salary, but would be mitigated by any potential salary he would make at a new job.
