Mike Bobinski is an ex-Georgia Tech athletic director. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Bobinski has resigned his position at the North Avenue Trade School to become the next AD for Purdue.
Ga. Tech released a statement verifying reports of Bobinski's departure. He will replace longtime Purdue AD Morgan Burke, who announced plans to retire in February after 24 years of service to the Boilermakers.
Ga. Tech president GP "Bud Peterson" praised Bobinski for his service to the Yellow Jacket athletic program.
"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,” Peterson said. “He has led with integrity, and we wish him the best.”
Bobinski became Ga. Tech AD in 2013. His most notable move in his three years in Atlanta was the firing of men's head basketball coach Brian Gregory in April of 2016. Gregory was replaced by Josh Pastner.
