Former Yellow Jackets Coach Bobby Cremins Calls It Quits

Former Georgia Tech head basketball coach Bobby Cremins retired on Tuesday as the head coach of the College of Charleston. Cremins left the team on January 27 citing physical exhaustion after six seasons with the Cougars. In many respects, Georgia Tech is still searching to replace Cremins who not only was successful but was the face of the program. Since his departure in 2000, the Yellow Jackets have been for the most part out of the lime light save for a single trip to the NCAA Championship game.

Under Cremins the Yellow Jackets were a consistent winner with nine trips to the NCAA Tournament culminating in a trip to the Final Four in 1990. Mark Price, Kenny Anderson, Dennis Scott and Brian Oliver are all big names from Georgia Tech's past but Cremins name is perhaps the biggest. No it didn't end on the best of terms but the school honored Cremins by naming its home court after him in 2006. Can't honestly say that College Basketball will be better without Cremins and neither was Georgia Tech.
