Pastner: New head coach at Georgia Tech

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech has hired Josh Pastner from Memphis to become its next men's basketball coach.
    
Georgia Tech announced the hire on Friday and scheduled a news conference for later in the day.
    
The 38-year-old Pastner will replace Brian Gregory, who was fired after failing to reach the NCAA Tournament in five seasons.
    
Pastner was 167-73 with four NCAA Tournament bids in seven years at Memphis. He did not finish his stay with the Tigers on a high note. Memphis was a combined 37-29 the last two years, failing to land an NCAA invitation each season. It finished 19-15 this season.
    
Despite the downturn of the Memphis program the last two years, which included a drop in attendance, Pastner comes to Georgia Tech with a reputation as a strong recruiter.
