Former Georgia Tech coach Bobby Cremins announced his retirement Monday at a news conference at the College of Charleston. Cremins had coached at the school for six seasons after retiring from Tech but took a leave of absence in late January due to exhaustion.
“I had nothing,” Cremins told the Associated Press in early February. “I had no gas.”
Cremins, 64, will remain at the school as a fundraiser and consultant.
Cremins coached at Tech for 19 seasons, from 1981 to 2000, and finished his tenure as the school’s all-time winningest coach and nine NCAA tournament berths, including the Jackets’ first Final Four trip in 1990. He also led Tech to three ACC tournament titles and two regular-season titles.
