Joe Hamilton Resigns

The press release:

Yellow Jacket Assistant Director of Player Personnel resigned Wednesday

ATLANTA – Joe Hamilton, Georgia Tech’s Assistant Director of Player Personnel for the Yellow Jacket football program since April 28, has resigned his position effective immediately.

“Today, I sadly accepted Joe’s resignation,” Georgia Tech head football coach Paul Johnson said. “I know he has great love and concern for this program and always will. Both athletic director Dan Radakovich and I made it clear to Joe that we would offer any support he requires in the coming weeks and into the future. Joe will always be a part of the Yellow Jacket family.”

Hamilton was a four-year starter at quarterback for Georgia Tech from 1996-99. As a senior, Hamilton was named the ACC Player of the Year, won the Davey O’Brien Award as the nation’s top collegiate quarterback and was a runner-up for the Heisman Trophy.

A class way to handle it if you ask me. This allows Joe to hang onto at least a scrap of dignity, and Paul Johnson makes the statement that Joe will always be part of the family. Well done by all................ as I pound my head repeatedly into the wall.
