Former Gators assistant joins Georgia Tech coaching staff

Georgia Tech has confirmed that Kerry Dixon has been hired by new head coach Geoff Collins as the Yellow Jackets’ wide receivers coach.  Dixon had spent the 2018 season as the running backs coach at Toledo.  

Prior to that, he served as the receivers coach at Florida from 2015-17.  In the latter two seasons in Gainesville, Collins was the Gators’ defensive coordinator.

“Kerry and I worked together at the University of Florida and I watched firsthand the type of wide-receiver play that he developed,” the head coach said in a statement. “He’s a relentless recruiter, a tireless worker and always has a positive attitude. He possesses a knowledge of the game from all of the positions on offense. I’m really excited about him joining the Georgia Tech football family.”
