“While I regret that Mike is leaving us, I appreciate his tremendous efforts the last three years to forge a unified, strategic direction for the Georgia Tech Athletic Association and to energize our coaches, student-athletes and fans,” GT president G.P. “Bud” Peterson said in a statement. “He has led with integrity, and we wish him the best.”

Bobinski will be replacing Morgan Burke, who announced his intentions to step down as athletic director at the end of his current deal.

Georgia Tech, meanwhile, will need to begin searching for a replacement of their own.
