Report: Georgia Tech bids farewell to defensive line coach

Georgia Tech is making another coaching change, this time on the defensive side of the ball.

According to a report from Kelly Quinlan of JacketsOnline, Georgia Tech is parting ways with defensive line coaches Larry Knight and David Turner. Knight last season also held the title of Defensive He’s Ends Coach and Defensive He’s Recruiting He’s Coordinator. Turner last season served as defensive run coordinator and indoor defensive lineman coach.

This is very important news for Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets are reshaping his coaching staff this offseason, but it’s primarily deployed on the football’s offensive side. These are the first changes Brent Key has made on the defensive side of the ball.

Knight came to Georgia Tech after two seasons (2017-18) at Temple under head coach Jeff Collins, according to the Georgia Tech Athletics site. He started working at Temple as a quality control assistant and has since been promoted twice. He was promoted first to director of player personnel and then to outside linebacker coach/defensive recruitment coordinator.

Brent Key is making some reforms to his defensive staff

After three seasons as a defensive line coach in Florida, Turner came to Georgia Tech, where he has been coaching for over 30 years.

It will be interesting to see how quickly Key works to fill that position and who he gets to fill the coaching spot.
