Considering the source, this is remarkably putrid:
Geoff Collins, Georgia Tech: Collins enters 2022 with a six-game losing streak and the lowest winning percentage (.265) of any full-time Georgia Tech coach in history. “Less branding, more coaching,” Collins said in December.
Buddy, when you’re looking up at Bill Lewis, you’re in a bad, bad place.
Does that mean if Tech actually wins more than three games this season — I know, but work with me here — that Coach 404 confessed to not doing his best before? Were I Tech, I’d be asking for a refund.
And, on a related matter…
Jason Semore had been on Collins’ staff in 2019 and 2020 as a defensive analyst before going to Valdosta State to be its defensive coordinator last season. He has taken over the linebacker group, which Thacker had coached since coming to Tech with Collins from Temple.
“I think he’s an elite coach, I think he’s an elite man and a lot of the guys inside of that (football) building were excited about that hire,” Thacker said. “Very unknown to the outside world, but there are a lot of guys that had good relationships, really respected him.”
Hey, Kirby Smart said “elite” a bunch before last season and look where it got him! I’m not sure that “Less branding, more coaching” theme has sunk in on the Flats quite yet.
