While not a surprise, Georgia Tech athletic director Todd Stansbury confirmed that coach Geoff Collins will return for a fourth season Wednesday night. Stansbury made the declaration on Collins’ radio show on The Fan.
“I have my man,” Stansbury told Tech broadcaster Andy Demetra.
Stansbury spoke with Demetra for the second half of the hour-long show, offering his perspective on the state of the team and his support of Collins. While calling the season painful, frustrating, disappointing and not acceptable for “anybody associated with this program,” Stansbury said that the team is close to winning.
Welp, there’s close… and then there’s close ($$).
Georgia is favored by 35 1/2 points, possibly the biggest spread in the rivalry’s history.
“It’s not enough,” one Tech insider told me.
I think what Todd’s saying there is that they aren’t close to raising Coach 404’s buyout. Yet.
