Update 9/26, 2:40 p.m.

Georgia Tech has officially announced the dismissal of Geoff Collins and AD Todd Stansbury. AHC/OL Coach Brent Key will serve as the interim head coach for the remainder of the season.

Per Ken Sugiura of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Geoff Collins is no longer Georgia Tech’s head coach.

After being named head coach following Paul Johnson and a search that many Tech faithful (us included) felt was too short, Collins inspired some immediate excitement with promises to modernize Georgia Tech and brand the team using the city of Atlanta.

Unfortunately, though, despite some successes in branding and recruiting, Collins was never able to win consistently. He finishes at Georgia Tech with a final record of 10-28.

Interestingly, neither of Georgia Tech’s coordinators (Chip Long or Andrew Thacker) will serve as the Interim Head Coach for the remainder of the season. Instead, it is rumored that offensive line coach Brent Key will be the interim head coach.
