ATLANTA (AP) -- New Georgia Tech athletic director Mike Bobinski says he's fully committed to the Atlantic Coast Conference and doesn't think coming from a non-football school will limit his effectiveness in leading the Yellow Jackets program.
Bobinski was introduced at Georgia Tech during a Friday news conference, two days after the school announced his hiring. He spent 12 years as Xavier's athletic director and will officially take over April 1.
Bobinski says he's followed football closely and knows it's the major force driving conference realignment. Georgia Tech has been mentioned as a possible candidate to move to the Big Ten.
Bobinski says he'll focus on making the ACC a stronger conference, especially in football.
