The Georgia Tech Athletic Association has announced via their Twitter account that defensive coordinator Al Groh has been fired.
Groh came to Georgia Tech after serving nine seasons as the head coach at Virginia. His reputation was built on being able to install an effective 3-4 defense, but unfortunately effectiveness never materialized with the Jackets.
Georgia Tech's defense this season has been abysmal, particularly the past three weeks when the Jackets gave up over 40 points in each game.
Tech fans await word from head coach Paul Johnson as to who will be the interim DC or if a full-timer will be named.
