Late last week Georgia Tech made official the hiring of new QB/BB coach Bryan Cook to take over for recently departed coach Brian Bohannon (who is starting the new Kennesaw State program). Cook comes to GT from FCS-level Cal Poly, where he served as co-Offensive Coordinator and also as QB/BB coach. He has Tech connections galore, having served as GA under both George O'Leary and Chan Gailey from 2001-2003, and as prep coach under Bobby Ross at Army.
Perhaps the most fascinating aspect of CBC's hire is his demonstrated evolution of the "Triple-Option" offense. While running a base offense similar to ours, he's been able to open up the play-calling to a more aggressive big-play mentality that has seen their QB increase his success in throwing the ball down the field, as well as their B-Backs seeing increased productivity. He brings the ability to call plays and develop ideas from another angle to CPJ's system. This can only be helpful as he works with a team that has Vad Lee and Justin Thomas.
Bryan Cook is an alum of Ithaca College, where he played in the late 90's. Pending paperwork, CBC could be available for practice as early as Monday. Best of luck to coach as we welcome him back to the Flats!
