Georgia Tech, just like any other Division 1 school, expects their teams to win. While life on North Avenue might be more geared towards academia (as Tech’s excellent APR scores will indicate), on the Flats mediocrity will only be tolerated for so long.
Right now all three of Tech’s major sports programs — football, basketball, and baseball — are mired in slumps, poor performing teams, and underachievement.
This isn’t to say that the teams and players aren’t good, or that the coaches haven’t had some pockets of success during their tenure, but more should be expected and could be achieved
Will any of these coaches be fired this year or after this season? It’s really hard to say, but best guess would be doubtful.
