Georgia Tech MBB. . Dwane Morrison. Dwane Morrison. . 91-122 overall record. 1973-1981. 2. player. 436

Dwane Morrison had to deal with a lot of movement at Georgia Tech. During his time with the Yellow Jackets, Georgia Tech moved from Independent status to the Metro Conference, back to Independent status, and finally into the ACC in his final two seasons.

It took time for Morrison to get his going only getting five wins in his first season. He was at least able to double his wins in year two going 11-15. In the Metro Conference, Morrison led his team to two winning records, not finishing below fifth place in their three seasons there. When Georgia Tech was independent once again, his team finished 17-9, one win shy of his best win total with the Yellow Jackets.

When Georgia Tech made the move to the ACC, Morrison was not able to keep up. In his first season in the new conference, the Yellow Jackets finished 8-18 and 1-13 in the ACC finishing in last place. His second season in the ACC would end up being his last.

In the 1980-1981 season, Georgia Tech finished 4-23, thier worst record in program history, and went winless in the ACC. Due to poor play in the ACC, Morrison was fired following the 1980-1981 season.
