Tech’s hope: new offense brings better athletes

When the two most prominent names in the Tech head coaching search were San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and Temple head coach Geoff Collins, fans everywhere wondered who would be chosen as the future leader of Tech football. On one hand, there was a proven, experienced former Tech football player who seemed like the predestined choice in the decision. The story made sense for Whisenhunt: the Jackets, looking to redefine themselves as a pro-friendly team, would naturally want to hire a professional coach to lead that transition.

However, Tech chose to go another route in their decision, hiring someone a full decade younger with obvious vigor and charisma.
