Georgia Tech fired coach Geoff Collins on Sunday less than a day after a 27-10 road loss to UCF sent the Yellow Jackets to 1-3 in Collins' fourth season, according to 247Sports' Bryce Koon and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The loss sent Collins to 10-28 (7-19 ACC) at GT with the program struggling to show any improvement during his tenure.
Upon being hired away from Temple, Collins faced a difficult task: Moving Georgia Tech's offense away from the option-based attack that Paul Johnson installed during his 11-year run with the program. That provided Collins with some leeway; however, the Jackets never finished better than 10th in the ACC in total offense while winning just three games in each of his first three campaigns, and they struggled mightily to start the 2022 season.
This past offseason saw a wave of transfer portal action with Georgia Tech losing multiple key players, including star running back Jahmyr Gibbs to Alabama, while bringing in contributors to help bolster the roster in a must-improve season for Collins. However, in its three games against FBS opponents (Clemson, Ole Miss, UCF), Georgia Tech has been outscored 110-20.
