Gailey names three assistant coaches

ATLANTA -- Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey announced the addition of three new assistant coaches Friday: former Duke offensive line coach Joe D'Allesandris, former Oklahoma State running backs coach Tommie Robinson and former Mississippi State coordinator of football operations David Wilson.

Three assistants from former coach George O'Leary's staff remain. Bill O'Brien remains the Yellow Jackets' offensive coordinator, while Ted Roof and Glenn Spencer both will coach defense.

D'Allesandris will coach the Yellow Jackets' offensive line, and Robinson will coach on offense. More specific responsibilities will be determined later, Gailey said.

"We now have six coaches in place which will help us get on with recruiting," Gailey said. "I feel very strongly that all of them are excellent coaches and will help us form a very good staff."

-D'Allesandris, 47, has coached the offensive line at Duke since 1997. He went there after serving as offensive line coach at Pittsburgh in 1996, and with the Memphis Mad Dogs of the CFL in 1995.

-Robinson, 38, spent last season at Oklahoma State after serving three years as an offensive assistant with the Dallas Cowboys working with wide receivers and special teams.

-Wilson, 51, an Atlanta native, spent the past five seasons at Mississippi State, coaching tight ends before becoming the Bulldog's coordinator of football operations last spring.
