Tem­ple coach Ge­off Collins has met with Ge­or­gia Tech of­fi­cials about the Yel­low Jack­ets’ va­cant head-coach­ing po­si­tion, a per­son with knowl­edge of the meet­ings told The As­so­ci­ated Press on Thurs­day.

The per­son spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity.

Paul John­son is step­ping down after 11 sea­sons. John­son will coach Ge­or­gia Tech against Min­nesota in the Quick Lane Bowl on Dec. 26.

The per­son said Collins met with Ge­or­gia Tech ath­letic di­rec­tor Todd Stans­bury in New York ear­lier this week and with the univer­sity pres­i­dent in At­lanta on Thurs­day morn­ing.

The per­son said Collins left At­lanta hav­ing not been of­fered the job by Ge­or­gia Tech.

Collins is 15-10 in two sea­sons at Tem­ple, in­clud­ing an 8-4 record this sea­son.

Collins grew up in Cony­ers, Ga., 24 miles east of At­lanta, and was a grad­u­ate as­sis­tant there early in his ca­reer un­der head coach Ge­orge O’Leary.
