Brian Bohannon Is the New Head Coach!
After the long wait (relatively!) for the announcement, it’s official, Brian Bohannon is the new man in charge. If there’s one thing I can say, it’s that this is certainly not a sexy pick. Bohannon has been on the radar for awhile, but he seemed to be the pick that most people, including myself, had glanced over but not seriously considered. David Dean, Andy McCollum and Chris Hatcher were the guys towards the front of the radar, but apparently Director of Athletics Vaughn Williams felt Bohannon is the man for the job.
Bohannon was a wide receiver at the University of Georgia in the early 90’s and has been an assistant since 1996 at Gardner-Webb, Georgia Southern, Navy and most recently Georgia Tech. Since 1997 he has followed current Georgia Tech Head Coach Paul Johnson around at each of his stops.
He will certainly have a head start in recruiting the state of Georgia, which is what Williams wanted in his first hire.
The Owl Howl team will be working on analyzing the move and what Bohannon can bring to the table. We should have something up by tomorrow night at the latest!
