Football - Gailey doesn't expect further changes

Quote from Coach Gailey:

"I don't anticipate any other moves," Gailey said Tuesday after announcing the resignations of David Wilson, the recruiting coordinator and special teams coach, and Tommie Robinson, the tight ends coach.

David Wilson did take a bit of a parting shot at his players

Tech ranked last in the ACC in kickoff coverage last season, and it ranked in the bottom half of the league in punt and kickoff returns.

Wilson took pride in the punt coverage team, which ranked third in the ACC and hasn't allowed a punt to be blocked since 2003.

"You do the best you have with the players available to you," Wilson said. "You see the high point with the punt team and you see the other levels of where they fall below that."

I guess it's not a problem to say stuff like that when you're not planning on getting another coaching job.

Coach Gailey does not plan on making any hires prior to signing day Feb 1.
