Athletic director Todd Stansbury will interview five or six candidates, and the decision may not arrive for another week and a half, according to the person, who also believed that Whisenhunt has not received an offer, as has been reported. Another candidate is Temple coach Geoff Collins, who previously served Tech as a graduate assistant, tight ends coach and player personnel director in two separate stops at the school.
Information on the search has been scarce. At the news conference Thursday where coach Paul Johnson addressed his decision to step down after 11 seasons, Stansbury said that “I’ve gone pretty dark” in regards to communication with people either interested in the job or wanting to offer candidates. In an email to donors and season-ticket holders sent out Tuesday, Stansbury said that the interview process was ongoing and that there was “great interest in becoming the next football head coach at Georgia Tech.”
