Pruitt and Fitzgerald see eye to eye.

“And I’ll tell you this right now: You talk about discipline in the program, here’s the discipline we’ve got: Zero tolerance.

Sounds like Mr. no Nonsense found his right hand man.

“There’s zero tolerance. If you’re one second late, that’s late, get you a 5 a.m. (workout) the next morning. That’s what we’re operating on right now in talking about changing the culture.”
