Georgia Tech athletics director Mike Bobinski has settled on his choice for the next head coach of the Georgia Basketball program.
At 3:30 on Friday, former Memphis Tigers head coach Josh Pastner is set to be announced as the next head coach of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at a press conference, replacing a fired Brian Gregory.
Assuming Pastner wraps up the hiring process, he may begin a short period of recruiting visits over the weekend, per NCAA rules.
38-year-old Pastner has been the head coach at Memphis since the 2009-10 season, including four NCAA, one NIT appearance, and five conference championships – two regular season, and two tournament. He has a 167-73 overall head coaching record, and was the Conference USA Coach of the Year in 2013.
