Georgia Tech athletic director Todd Stansbury dipped into the past and future at the same time to a former Yellow Jacket staffer to fill the role as the 21st head coach of the Yellow Jackets football program.

Collins, 47, went 15-10 in two seasons with Temple, including an 8-4 mark this season and a bid to the Independence Bowl.

Geoff Collins, the head coach of the Temple Owls for the past two seasons, has accepted the opening to become the next Georgia Tech head coach according to a press release. The Georgia native spent a few seasons with the Yellow Jackets as a graduate assistant from 1999-2001 before floating around the country as an assistant.

"While it is always hard to lose a head coach, it is a testament to what we have built at Temple through our students, our fans, our alumni and our donors that we can continue to have success", Foley said in a statement released by the school. Ed Foley - the assistant head coach, tight ends coach and special teams coach - will serve as interim coach and guide the Owls in the bowl game.

The Yellow Jackets began the search after Paul Johnson announced his retirement from coaching on November 28.

Georgia Tech finished 7-5 in the regular season. He took over for his close friend Matt Rhule previous year, when Rhule left for Baylor. The Owls will face Duke in the Independence Bowl on December 26.
