Former Georgia Tech Yellow Jacket Tashard Choice is returning to his alma mater. He has been hired as the school’s new running backs coach by new head football coach Geoff Collins.
“It’s good to have Tashard back home on The Flats,” Collins said. “He was a great running back for us here at Georgia Tech, was a great player in the NFL and has done a really good job at the University of North Texas, where he was named one of the top six running back coaches in America.
“He’s a relentless recruiter, has an enthusiastic personality and will be engaging with recruits and our current players. It’s exciting to have him back home and it’ll be great to have him around our guys.”
The 34-year-old Jonesboro, Georgia will be part of Collins initial staff at Georgia Tech. He served the 2018 season as the North Texas Mean Green’s running backs coach.
He also served the 2017 season as the Mean Green’s Grad Assistant Coach. He began his coaching career as an intern with the Dallas Cowboys in 2016.
Choice previously played in the NFL for four teams. He began his career with the Cowboys from 2008 through 2011.
He then signed with the Washington Redskins in 2011. He also played for the Buffalo Bills, where he played from 2011 through 2013.
He also ended his career with the Indianapolis Colts in 2013.
“I’m truly blessed to have the opportunity to come back home to Georgia Tech,” Choice said. “I will always be thankful for my time at North Texas but I can’t wait to serve my players, coaches and the community that instilled in me the honor of being a part of the White and Gold.”
