Georgia Tech fires basketball coach Brian Gregory

According to multiple reports, Georgia Tech basketball coach Brian Gregory is no longer in charge of the program. Wednesday was the team’s last game of the season, losing to San Diego State in the quarterfinals of the NIT.

“This was a difficult decision because of the character and integrity that Brian has demonstrated throughout his time at Georgia Tech,” athletics director Mike Bobinski said via Georgia Tech’s website. “I have great respect for Brian as a person and for the effort he’s put forth on our behalf.”

Gregory had previously coached at Dayton for eight seasons before taking the job in Atlanta. School officials say they will begin the search for a new coach immediately.

Gregory has been at the helm of the Yellow Jacket hoops program for the past five years, achieving a 76-86 overall record with a 27-61 ACC mark. Maybe somewhat ironically, this past season was his most successful, reaching 21 wins.
