Geoff Collins Leaving

In an incredibly disappointing development today, it is being reported that Geoff Collins is leaving Georgia Tech for a similar job at Alabama - as a recruiting coordinator but not as an on-the-field coach. It was no secret that Collins was looking to get on the field as an assistant again, although it's not clear what opportunity he has at Bama. However, he was KEY in helping put together this year's fantastic Tech recruiting class. Absolutely key. Yes, Giff Smith is the ring leader, but Collins was a key contributor to the outstanding class we just signed.

Collins will be working to get Nick Saban's recruiting structure in order and evidently got a pretty nice monetary offer to do so. Make no mistake that he will help that program. The real question is will the Saban the Slimy Weasel actually be around long? Will it pay off for Geoff. Well if not.......... take the money and run..

Sad sad day for the Tech family. I wish him the best personally, but I can't root a whole lot for Bama or Saban.

Dang it................
