Reports: Georgia Tech hires Temple coach Geoff Collins to lead Yellow Jackets ...

Prior to Temple, he had successful stints as the defensive coordinator at Florida (2015-16) and Mississippi State (2011-14).

Born in Georgia with college playing experience at Western Carolina, Collins has been on Georgia Tech's staff twice already in his career as both a graduate assistant and recruiting coordinator.

The Georgia Tech coaching search has been ongoing since Nov. 28 and already has included names like Ken Whisenhunt, but once reports of Collins' interview with Georgia Tech surfaced, it became clear the process was coming to a conclusion quickly.

Johnson elected to step down after 11 seasons at Georgia Tech, ending a head coaching career that dates back to 1997 and has included success at both the FCS and FBS levels.

Chip Patterson has spent his young career covering college sports from the Old North State.

He's been writing and talking about football and basketball for CBS Sports since 2010.
