Wonder if Ga Tech's so-called fan base is having second thoughts about their coaching hire. LOL

Congrats coach Fitz. Well deserved. Do it again to prove that we’re not a bottom feeder anymore. We’ve had success in the past( didn’t Bennie Ellenderget this recognition). I don’t think you are a one and done type of person. Congrats again

#2 in the G5
UTSA coach #1

2. Willie Fritz, Tulane (2022: Just missed)

Fritz dropped off this list last year after a 2-10 season, but he rockets back up near the top after a 12-2 season, the largest turnaround in FBS history, capped by an AAC championship, a Cotton Bowl win against USC and a top-10 finish. Fritz has won at every level of college football, with at least one conference championship in junior college, Division II, FCS and FBS. Now he has brought Tulane its most success since the 1930s.

That coach at UTSA better be good as he will be challenged. His team is among the leaders in starting players out of eligibility. Last year's UTSA team must have been one of the oldest in D1.

Unless I missed it, what happened to the 7 year, “I want to be here for the rest of my coaching career “, contract extension?

There are 2 things significant about this article: the writer (whoever he is) thinks Coach Fritz is #1 and 4 of the 5 are in the AAC.

The only thing that matters is, did he sign the extension?

Translation, please?

Like most languages I'm unfamiliar with, I can usually get the gist. I think gbg is saying the contract was signed, but if so, why was it not announced? Again, things like this should have a press conference and shout out to the world. IF it's truly been signed and we didn't hold a press conference, it's yet another opportunity missed, Fritz is a commodity now, we should announce he's ours.
