Georgia Tech Football: Ray Rychleski Joins Staff as Special Teams Coach and Offensive Line Assistant

Danny Karnik/Georgia Tech Athletics

Rychleski brings over 30 years of coaching experience, both college and professional, along with him to the Flats.

Last week, reports surfaced that Coach Paul Johnson had found his man to replace departed special teams coach Dave Walkosky, in the form of the Montreal Alouettes' (of the CFL) Special Teams Coordinator Ray Rychleski. Those reports were confirmed Tuesday in the form of an official release from the athletic department.

Rychleksi brings with him an impressive coaching pedigree, including a position as Special Teams Coordinator on the 2009 Indianapolis Colts' AFC Championship team and 8 years in college between 2001-2008 (7 years at Maryland under Ralph Friedgen, 1 year at South Carolina under Steve Spurrier). Overall he has 28 years of college coaching experience, also including stops at Penn State, Temple, and Wake Forest.

Rychleski is Johnson's second straight Special Teams coordinator to be hired out of the Canadian Football League after Walkosky came straight from the Calgary Stampeders prior to the 2012 season. Rychleski's teams had a streak of 110 straight games without a blocked punt at one point, and he has directly coached 22 NFL players, including 12 specialists and 10 tight ends.
