Georgia Tech announced on Friday that Wommack will not return for the 2010 season. Coach Paul Johnson says he and Wommack “both agreed” a change was needed after Georgia Tech ranked 54th in the nation in total defense and 56th in scoring defense.
The Yellow Jackets finished 11-3 and No. 13 but had struggles much of the season on defense. Georgia Tech allowed 24.8 points per game even when helped by the Yellow Jackets’ ball-control spread option offense.
Georgia Tech allowed 30 or more points in six games this season.
