Georgia Tech Hires Xavier's Mike Bobinski As School's Eighth Athletic Director

Georgia Tech yesterday named Xavier AD Mike Bobinski to the same position, making him the school's "eighth athletic director," according to Ken Sugiura of the ATLANTA JOURNAL-CONSTITUTION. Bobinski spent 12 years as Xavier AD, and is “scheduled to begin at Tech on April 1.” He will be introduced tomorrow. Bobinski landed at Tech after a "three-month search process than began after Dan Radakovich ended his six-year term in October to take the same job at Clemson.” Xavier “ranked 11th in Division I in graduation success rate at 97 percent.” Bobinski among his “noteworthy accomplishments” at Xavier kept the men’s basketball team “thriving with a series of new coaches.” He also “serves as the chair of the NCAA men’s basketball committee, which oversees the NCAA tournament.” At Tech, Bobinski will face challenges “that Radakovich also battled -- filling Bobby Dodd Stadium and developing new revenue streams.” He will also “have to become more acquainted with BCS-level football” (AJC.com, 1/16).
