Georgia Tech Football Promotes Brent Key to Head Coach, per Sources

Georgia Tech is promoting interim head football coach Brent Key to the permanent head coaching position, sources tell Sports Illustrated’s Ross Dellenger.

Key, who was given the interim role after the Yellow Jackets fired Geoff Collins following a 1–3 start, showed promise in eight games at the helm. Georgia Tech went 4–4 down the stretch, boasting wins over Pitt, Duke, Virginia Tech and North Carolina, ultimately finishing the year 5–7.

Key is also a former team captain and All-ACC offensive lineman at Georgia Tech, where he started 44 games from 1997 to 2000.
