    The salary pool for Georgia Tech coach Geoff Collins’ 10 assistant coaches is 14% larger than it was for former coach Paul Johnson.

    And the biggest portion of the pool is devoted to offensive-line coach Brent Key, who now is one of the higher-paid position coaches in the ACC (if not the highest) at $600,000.

    The pool size likely will rank near the bottom among power-conference teams, using the 2018 USA Today report as a measure. Last year, of the 51 power-conference schools whose salary data was included, only eight (not including Tech) paid their assistants less than the $3.205 million that the Yellow Jackets assistants will draw this season. Tech, in fact, was at the bottom at 2.8 million. It would not be a surprise if some of those eight leapfrogged Tech this year.

    I agree with the need for patience. But, the idea that Temple was trash before Collins is an inaccuracy I hear repeated often. Temple was a nothing program until Al Golden. In his last two years the Owls won 9 and then 10 games. Addazio came in and had one good year and then a disaster. Matt Ruhle took over and things were really low. He did a great job. Before going to Baylor Temple won 10 games each in ‘15 and ‘16. Collins took over and the win totals dropped to 7 and then 8 games. He did well, but he did not rebuild at Temple.

    Collins inherited Matt Rhule's 10-win Temple team.

    100%. The first 2 years is more on the old coach than the new coach, so good or bad, I’m with CGC at least till year 3.

    Just because you post this tripe, doesn’t make it true.

    I do think that CGC deserves until year 3 to see what he’s got. Gameday coaching needs to improve. And let’s hope that the early commits from recruiting sign.

    Yep. We can afford to pay Thacker so little because he is young but if he has success with the defense, we will need to pony up quickly. Patenaude doesn't command a big salary because he is a journeyman and would probably still be a G5 coordinator if he hadn't followed Collins here. Point remains we will need to pay more if we want to follow the Dabo model. This is part of the reason I am not quite sure PJ was pushed out. Ideally, I think TStan would have wanted to have a little more $ in the bank.

    I have gone off topic. To answer the OP, I am 100 percent on board and nothing that happens year one will change my mind

    "like no other" is a bit of an exaggeration. But transition can be a disaster

    Paul Johnson won with Gailey's players, and Johnson won with his own players; he coached the players he had, not the players he wished he had; get over it.
