Recently, ESPN's Travis Haney ranked the Power-5 schools by how desirable each school's head coaching position was, listing out factors working for and against each. (Link requires subscription.) Out of 65 Power-5 schools, the head coaching job at Georgia Tech was ranked 41st, with the school and program referred to in the article as "a souped-up Northwestern". It discusses the duplicity of academic restrictions combined with a highly fertile recruiting territory. They speak positively of the program given its restrictions, saying "Georgia Tech might be second only to Stanford in terms of overcoming admissions with style of play."
Among 14 ACC schools (not counting Notre Dame), Georgia Tech is ranked dead in the middle at #7 by the ACC Blog team. (This link doesn't require subscription.) They're ranked higher than the likes of Pitt and Duke, but lower than UNC and Louisville. (Mysteriously, NC State is rated as a better job nationally by 1 spot, but a worse job in the conference by 2 spots. Different strokes...)
Here are the overall rankings for the ACC as well as the relative rankings nationally:
Whatever ESPN says, Georgia Tech is #1 in our hearts.
See anything screwy there? Agree with the jobs rated higher than that of Georgia Tech?
