This is a discussion on TOS reporting CCK to FSU within the Georgia Tech Football forums, part of the Georgia Tech Sports Message Boards category; Originally Posted by Atllove apparently he is a respectable coach if he has been mentioned before for a position with ...
Word is the staff has known about this for a while and that he wanted to personally tell the guys on the team before making an announcement...but FSU leaked it. Makes the celebration in the coordinator booth look a lot different in hindsight now. Sounds like he wanted a change from GT, and potentially being promoted to DC wasn't even a factor. Read into that what you want.
BTW...Kelly is going to clean house recruiting for FSU. Walking into a HS with FSU on his shirt is going to do a LOT more than walking in with GT on his shirt. Sorry, but that's just the truth right now.
According to Rivals.com CPJ has confirmed it as of late Monday.
But here is my question. I checked the commits, to this point, according the Rivals and Scout the only one Kelly is listed on as the recruiter is the DB out of Jersey, cant remember his name.
Our big recruits are mostly being handled by Preston and McCoullough. That includes Custis.
Can someone help me out some, when I read the commit lists I see coaches other than Kelly associated with the kids yet you guys are saying he is the main guy in recruiting which is it.
One more thing, I know some of you may have a better picture as to what is happening but we seem to be convinced that Kelly wanted the DC position or that CPJ dosent have someone else he would rather have.
Why are we assuming Fl State took our guy or that we lost him ? Wouldn't we have to have asked him to stay in order for either to be the case ?
It sounds like the entire staff knew he was leaving before we or the kids did. I suppose if it was held that State got him, until after the games were over it would stand to reason that CPJ has moved forward and we may have ours also ( from a team that was still playing or a person who could not go public yet)

For those who would like a reminder: http://gtsports.blogspot.com/2009/11...-contract.html
Did any one think this may be for the best? I mean if we hire a new DC odds are he will want to bring in a guy or two with him to run things his way. And we know CPJ won't really fire someone unless they really deserve it. (Groh and that other guy before we got our special teams coach) this might be a blessing in disguise so the new DC can bring in another new guy that is in line with his schemes on recruiting, and Xs&Os.
Congrats to Kelly.
That said I hate to see him go.
But coaches move on, Beamer and Mack Brown being exceptions.
I don't see any big mysterious conspiracy here. Kelly most likely knew of this (as did CPJ) for some time.
Why didn't they tell us? They're not stupid in spite of what some people think.
I'm sure we'll find out rather quickly who's on the short list now that THE game is over.
