Tech will drop Russell Athletic as uniform supplier

When Georgia Tech’s apparel contract with Russell Athletic expires in June 2018, the school will move on to a new apparel provider.

Tech is the only power-conference school under contract with Russell Athletic and is believed to be one of two schools in FBS not aligned with the big three of Adidas, Nike or Under Armour. Southern Miss, also a Russell Athletic school, is the only other exception.
