NCAAF News: Ga. Tech fires Geoff Collins, AD Todd Stansbury


Georgia Tech fired head football coach Geoff Collins and athletic director Todd Stansbury on Monday.

Associate head coach Brent Key was named interim head coach.

Collins finishes with a 10-28 record in three-plus seasons in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets have lost nine straight games to FBS opponents following Saturday’s 27-10 loss to UCF. The Ramblin Wreck are 1-3 this season, their only win coming against FCS Western Carolina.

“I am grateful to Coach Collins for his hard work and commitment to our student athletes,” Georgia Tech President Angel Cabrera said in a release. “Unfortunately, the results of our football program have fallen short of what our loyal community, fans and athletes expect and deserve. We are committed to rebuilding the program and a coaching change is a necessary first step in that process.”

Collins had three years left on his contract, with a buyout of $11.37 million, per reports.

Stansbury hired Collins from Temple, where he went 15-10 in two seasons. Stansbury has been Tech’s AD since 2006.

Frank Neville, chief of staff and senior vice president of strategic initiatives, has been named interim director of athletics.

The school announced that a national search will get underway this week to recruit a new AD and head coach, led by Parker Executive Search.
