Georgia Tech fired head football coach Geoff Collins and athletic director Todd Stansbury Monday morning. The news rippled through Atlanta and the college football landscape.
Geoff Collins, who was reportedly out the door on Sunday, was officially fired on Monday, two days after a 27-10 loss to UCF. The Yellow Jackets had a record of 10-28 at Georgia Tech with Collins at the helm.
Brent Key, the assistant head coach under Collins, was appointed interim head coach, but doesn't expect to remain coach after this season.
Alex Grinch, the defensive coordinator at USC, is expected to be a candidate who could earn a shot at the job. Yes, he would likely take the Arizona State job over Tech if offered, but Grinch's name will still be in the ring of 10-15 candidates.
The Yellow Jackets are at No. 24 Pittsburgh on Saturday and still have a loaded ACC schedule plus No. 1 Georgia on the road later this year.
