COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : ACROSS THE NATION : Georgia Tech Coach Lewis Steps Down

November 08, 1994|Associated Press

Georgia Tech football coach Bill Lewis resigned Monday night and the school named defensive coordinator George O'Leary to finish out the season.

Athletic Director Homer Rice said a search committee would be formed to seek a permanent replacement.

Lewis, who is to remain with the program, led the Yellow Jackets to an 11-19 record in three seasons. They are 1-7 overall and 0-6 in the Atlantic Coast Conference this season.

Lewis, the ninth head coach in Georgia Tech history, signed a five-year rollover contract on Jan. 1, 1992.

The Yellow Jackets were 5-6 in each of Lewis' first two seasons and have not beaten a Division 1-A team with a winning record since a 16-13 victory over North Carolina State on Oct. 3, 1992.

Lawyers for a group of University of Washington football players withdrew their motion for an injunction to temporarily end the probation that bars the Huskies from a bowl game this season. The players said they decided to give up their fight for a temporary injunction after their team lost, 46-28, to Stanford on Saturday. The loss gave Washington a 6-3 record, making it unlikely the team would be asked to a major bowl.

Sophomore Beau Morgan will start at quarterback for Air Force on Saturday against Utah. He replaces Preston McConnell, who suffered a shoulder injury Saturday in a 10-7 victory over Army.
