ATLANTA (AP) Geoff Collins is out as Georgia Tech's football coach, fired Monday in the midst of his fourth season after failing to make headway with a brash plan to turn the Yellow Jackets into a national powerhouse through branding and promoting Atlanta's big-city culture.
Collins was officially dumped during a meeting of the athletic association board two days after a 27-10 loss to Central Florida left him with a record of 10-28 at Georgia Tech.
Brent Key, the assistant head coach under Collins, was appointed interim head coach. He doesn't have much time to settle in: The Yellow Jackets are at No. 24 Pittsburgh on Saturday.
