Taylor, who earned his doctorate in performance psychology in 2019, incorporated technology and science into the team’s training and weightlifting program, even collaborating with Tech professors.
“He was a really good fit for Georgia Tech and for me,” Pastner said. “He did a great job, and I’m really happy for him. He has a big-time opportunity with the Charlotte Hornets.”
Pastner said he will hire an interim replacement for Taylor for the season, and will look for a full-time hire in the spring.
“We’re going to have to figure it out,” he said. “We’re going to have to hire someone good.”
