    Well, on the topic of coaching grades, let's look at Geoff Collins' report card for every coaching grade I could find with a Google search:
    CBS (Tom Fornelli): B+
    CBS (Dennis Dodd): B
    The Athletic (Stewart Mandel): A-
    GT Swarm (Yomanser): A+
    SB Nation (Jason Kirk): A
    Big Red Louie (Ethan Sprowles): B
    ChatSports (Tom Downey): B-
    Orlando Sentinel (Matt Murschel): A
    Sports Illustrated (Joan Nielsen): 4.2/5 (grade A, since the highest given rating was a 4.4)

    That's good for a 3.55 GPA, which coincidentally is the cut off for "Highest Honors" at Georgia Tech.

    Unfortunately ESPN's Gerry Hamilton,Tom Luginbill and Craig Haubert gave Geoff Collins a C

    That's a signing day grade, I was just reporting the hiring grades. That being said, that's a pretty pitiful grade for what was a pretty solid class. 247 ranks our class 9th and Rivals ranks it 8th out of the 14 ACC teams, which I trust much more than the ESPN grades.

    If that was the 2014 Orange Bowl in your avatar, objection sustained.

    I have no clue what rule that is, to be honest. I did a search, and couldn't find anything regarding that rule. I think it is more likely that he was saying that Coach Collins has about one year (or, in other words, he has up until Georgia Tech's first game) to get the number of scholarships on roster down to 85

    Honestly, I think in the long run it likely was the right call to go with a clean slate in regards to the staff, even though some of the better coaches had to leave in order for that to happen. I hope they all find their right landing spots

    Essentially, he is the top guy who oversees recruiting and assists in roster management. He is the one who sets up the recruiting operations at Georgia Tech, and in charge of "consistent day-in, day-out operation to recruiting, so the staff knows what they're doing from the social media side, to the mail-out side, to the film and evaluation side"

    He was the special teams coordinator at FIU and assisted in that task at Western Carolina, and during that time FIU ranked in the top 20 of all FBS teams for kickoff return yardage. He also assisted with special teams in Indianapolis with the Colts and Chuck Pagano, and helped rank top in categories for most special teams

    I think he has a good idea now as to likely transfers, and after spring ball I expect a lot of guys are going to transfer out on their own. I don't think there will be much "processing", if any at all

    Thank you for this. I guess I am the biggest "homer" out of the bunch, haha, but I also think that just because we didn't land the biggest name this cycle, that doesn't mean we may have had the best hire

    Hopefully very, very, soon. I am working on touching it up. Real life caught up just after this was posted, and kept me from the site for several days. Thanks to all for your patience!

    I'm not sold on CGC, but that article is for "midterm grades;" I am not sure why ESPN chose to post the article on 2/7. The "C" grade doesn't account for signing Griffin. There is reason to believe that Griffin signed solely to play with his brother, but credit to CGC where due. The grade should be higher than a "C."
