***UPDATE***


Geoff Collins has reportedly accepted the job, per Jeff Schultz of The Athletic.


On Nov. 28 Georgia Tech announced that head coach ​Paul Johnson would be retiring after 11 seasons at the helm. 


Since then, rumors reported that they were ​eyeing Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliot and they even ​brought in Chargers OC Ken Whisenhunt for an interview, who has since removed his name from consideration. 


The search might just be coming to an end as Temple head coach Geoff Collins is the reported favorite to land the upcoming vacancy after a meeting with Georgia Tech officials and a deal could be sealed by tonight. 

​​Don't look now ​college football fans, but this could be a perfect fit for both parties. Collins previously had two coaching stints at Georgia Tech and is a Georgia native. 


Collins was a graduate assistant at Tech from 1999-2000 and a tight ends coach in 2001. He returned for one season in 2006 as director of player personnel.

Collins led the Owls to an 8-4 record as they finished second in the American Athletic Conference East Division with a 7-1 mark. 


Stay tuned for updates. It appears as though a deal is imminent.
