Source: Temple’s Collins meets with Georgia Tech
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.
