Why Georgia Tech should finally hire a Black head football coach

Georgia Tech made the widely expected departure of coach Geoff Collins and athletic director Todd Stansbury official Monday.

Typically, schools like to hire an athletic director before a coach, and they expect a search firm to help both causes—the new AD could come in with their own short list of contacts and candidates and need assistance in handling the search while getting integrated with the rest of the department. All of this is important for timing reasons. If the Yellow Jackets are going to run a real athletic director search, it could take a few weeks, likely putting a full hiring process for a coach on the relative back burner until around Halloween.
