Bobinski to Georgia Tech?

Word on the street is that Xavier's AD Mike Bobinski will be named Georgia Tech's AD today. Hopefully his first duty on the job is firing Gregory.

I hope Xavier takes a serious look at former Xavier employee and current Duquesne AD Greg Amodio.

And before anyone who thinks they are witty chimes in with "this could hurt there chances at the new conference", the decisions on that are at the President's of the Universities level at this point. This won't affect that at all.

That would suck for Xavier. Bobinski clearly has a talent for identifying good coaches.

Wouldn't hope too strongly on that one. ADs tend to like hiring people they have worked with.

Just happened to go to the AJC website to check the local news and and saw the banner that Bobinski is the new Tech AD. Bummer for Xavier. IMO, he's one of the top ADs in the country.

I think his point is he'd fire Gregory and hire Mack at GT.

His point was, who does he look to hire if he fires Gregory?

Gregory out? I wonder if Brad Stevens would like to live in Georgia? Georgia Tech is a big upgrade over Butler.

Re: Bobinski to Georgia Tech?

Pretty certain that Georgia Tech is one of the dozens of schools hes already summarily declined some time in the past.

The relevant list likely doesn't exceed 2 or 3.

Re: Bobinski to Georgia Tech?

Mack's "availability" to Georgia Tech would be almost entirely decided by who Xavier hires as their new AD. This is also assuming Bobinski fires Gregory. That's a lot that would have to go a certain way. Highly unlikely.

Will Xavier keep it "in the family" and go after Amodio at Duquesne? That would seem to be the safest hire if they don't promote from within.

Bobinski has obviously done a good job. But I don't think you can say a is one of the top guys in the country at his profession when he is not presiding over a "big pond" school. The difference in the scope of an AD job at a big time football school and Xavier is huge. Not quite apples and oranges....but close.

Too bad for X, but considering they will be off to the C7, not too bad.

Some of us also hope that they take a look at Amodio

Good luck to Bobo. Had a nice reign @ X. One of the good guys in college sports. We all knew this day would come sooner or later.
