Joe Hamilton Returns to Georgia Tech

Danny Karnik/Georgia Tech Athletics

The prodigal son returns to our athletics department.

In a move that will make most folks surrounding Georgia Tech's Athletics Department very happy, Joe Hamilton announced on his Twitter account on Tuesday that he'll be returning to Georgia Tech to work in a front-office type of role.

Hamilton, of course, was the 1999 Heisman Trophy runner-up to Ron Dayne, set numerous ACC career records, and was named to the ACC's 50th Anniversary Team in 2002. When Coach Johnson got to campus in 2008, Hamilton had recently received his degree from Tech in History, Technology, and Society, and was hired as Assistant Director of Player Personnel. Unfortunately, it was shortly after that he was arrested for DUI, and he tendered his resignation to Coach Johnson before he really had a chance to get started.

It's been 5 years though (within a day, actually - his arrest was May 6, 2008), and Hamilton seems the type who loves the program enough to have been itching to be back. He'll fill the same position he was originally hired to, and should prove to be a major asset in the recruiting game.

Excited to have Joe back on the Flats?
