Georgia Tech athletic director leaving to take same position at Purdue in July
Georgia Tech's Mike Bobinski will replace Morgan Burke, who is scheduled to retire next summer
Georgia Tech athletic director Mike Bobinski is leaving the ACC school to take the same job at Purdue, a source confirmed to CBS Sports early Tuesday.
"While I regret that Mike is leaving us, I appreciate his tremendous efforts the last three years to forge a unified, strategic direction for the Georgia Tech Athletic Association and to energize our coaches, student-athletes and fans," said Georgia Tech president G.P. "Bud" Peterson. "He has led with integrity, and we wish him the best."
Bobinski has been at Georgia Tech -- where he fired men's basketball coach Brian Gregory in March and replaced him with Josh Pastner in April -- since January 2013. He will replace Morgan Burke at Purdue. Burke is scheduled to retire in July 2017.
Bobinski is mostly known as a "basketball guy" in industry circles. The Notre Dame graduate was formerly the athletic director at Xavier -- where he was employed while the school hired Thad Matta (2001), Sean Miller (2004) and Chris Mack (2009). Bobinski was also the chair of the NCAA Division I men's basketball committee for the 2012-13 season.
