Maybe it’s just me, but I’m having a hard time reconciling this…
A lot of people are counting on Geoff Collins this year. Not only Georgia Tech players and fans, although they are looking for him to lead the Yellow Jackets to greater heights than the three-win seasons that they’ve stomached in the first three years of his leadership.
But also the assistant coaches and off-field personnel – quality-control and analyst positions, strength-and-conditioning coaches and staffers in operations, recruiting, social media and the equipment room – whom Collins has brought to Tech, as well as their families. They need him to deliver the progress that will ensure that his tenure – and theirs – can be extended to a fifth season.
“I bear that every single day, and it matters to me,” Collins said in an interview this week with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “Every single person that’s in this organization, I’m not shy about how much I love and care and am appreciative every single day of their efforts and of who they are as people, so that is a big deal for me.”
… with the guy who mailed in a game plan to last year’s Georgia game that amounted to little more than complete submission.
