One of the most tenured coaches in football has been relieved of his duties. The Georgia Tech Yelowjackets announced today that defensive coordinator Al Groh will part ways with the program, effective immediately

Groh was in his third year at Georgia Tech after nine seasons at the University of Virginia, where he won the Atlantic Coast Conference's "Coach of the Year" award in 2002 and 2007. In all, the 68-year-old Groh has over 45 years of coaching experience that has taken him though high school, college, and the NFL.

In a statement, Groh indicated that he would not retire.

"The Institute has decided to go in a different direction, which I respect. I appreciate all the help and input from (assistant defensive coaches) Charles Kelly, Joe Speed and Andy McCollum, and the effort of all the players. "I aimed to give the best that I had every day. It's been an honor to be a part of the legacy of Georgia Tech football. I feel positive that this is a good time in life to move on to a new situation."
