Georgia Tech president G.P. “Bud” Peterson confirmed Monday that athletics director Dan Radakovich has resigned to accept the same position at Clemson. “Since he came to Georgia Tech in 2006, Dan has overseen a significant expansion of our athletics facilities,” Peterson said in a Georgia Tech release. “Under his leadership, our student-athletes have continued to excel, winning both conference and national championships. It has been a pleasure to work with him, and we wish Dan and his wife, Marcie, the very best in his new position.” Associate athletics director Paul Griffin has agreed to serve as acting athletics director. Georgia Tech will conduct a national search to fill the director of athletics position. “We are thankful to Dan for his leadership and grateful that Paul Griffin has agreed to continue the strong leadership of our athletics department. This will provide the kind of continuity we will need as we look ahead to the future of athletics at Georgia Tech,” Peterson said.
Radakovich served as the Georgia Tech AD for six-plus years. During his time, Georgia Tech teams won 14 ACC championships and nine ACC regular-season titles during Radakovich’s tenure. Yellow Jackets teams have also made 51 NCAA postseason or bowl appearances, and women’s tennis captured the 2007 NCAA championship.
