Georgia Tech director of athletics Mike Bobinski announced Friday that Brian Gregory will not be retained as head men’s basketball coach. Gregory served as head coach for five seasons, compiling an overall record of 76-86 (27-61 in the Atlantic Coast Conference).

“This was a difficult decision because of the character and integrity that Brian has demonstrated throughout his time at Georgia Tech. I have great respect for Brian as a person and for the effort he’s put forth on our behalf. He and the student-athletes under his direction have represented Georgia Tech in a first-rate manner and we’re greatly appreciative of the improvements he’s overseen in our program’s academic performance,” said Bobinski. “However, as we look to the future, we believe a change in leadership is needed for our program to achieve higher and sustained levels of competitive success.”

A search will begin immediately for a new head coach.
