Brent Key, new Georgia Tech coach, fires opening salvo in rivalry with Georgia
Brent Key was recently hired at Georgia Tech as its next coach after he served the last part of the season as its interim coach.
At an introductory press conference on Monday, Key issued an opening salvo to the Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate rivalry.
“We have an opponent in this state that we will work 365 days a year to defeat … we will work 365 days a year to dominate,” Key said. “We all wake up in the morning, our goal is to dominate our opponent. The feeling of dominating your opponent is like no other. And whatever team is on our schedule, that is our goal. That is what we will work towards every single day. Players that are in here understand that. That is our goal, that is our mindset and we have an opponent in this state that is included in that. For 365 days, we will work to dominate that opponent.”
Georgia has won 5 straight in the rivalry, and leads the all-time series 70-41-5.
