Georgia Tech is looking at interim Brent Key to move into a permanent head coaching position in the Yellow Jackets’ organization, per Pete Thamel.

Earlier this week, Tulane coach Willie Fritz was rumored to be Georgia Tech’s top target for their head coach opening after leading the Green Wave to a 10-2 season and conference championship appearance.

Fritz told the press this week that he intends to remain at Tulane next season, a statement that may have prompted the GT athletic department to start looking elsewhere. After Geoff Collins was fired in September, offensive line coach Key was promoted to the interim position, where he led the Yellow Jackets to a 4-4 record with wins over Pittsburgh, Duke, and North Carolina.

Key has also held coaching positions at UCF and Alabama.

Updates to come.
