Bill Lewis. 436. 2. Georgia Tech football. . . Bill Lewis. player. 1992-1994. 11-19 overall record

Bill Lewis took over for Bobby Ross after he chose to leave for a job with the San Diego Chargers. Lewis was never able to make it to six wins and did not even finish his final season in 1994 where he "resigned" but most people believe he was effectively fired.

Here is a breakdown of Lewis' time with the Yellow Jackets.

  • 1992: 5-6, 4-4 conference
  • 1993: 5-6, 3-5 conference
  • 1994: 1-7, 0-6 conference

Lewis did not leave on good terms with Georgia Tech and in conference play the Yellow Jackets just seemingly got worse in each season.
