Roof Adds A New Coach

Duke head coach Ted Roof has made one of his first moves in the process of revamping the Blue Devil coaching staff by hiring Georgia Tech defensive line coach Glenn Spencer as an assistant head coach and potential defensive coordinator.

Spencer, who played with Roof at Tech from 1982-1985, has already informed Georgia Tech officials of his decision, and is unlikely to be on the sidelines when the Jackets take on Tulsa in the January 3rd Humanitarian Bowl.

Spencer came to Tech after 11 years at West Georgia, including three seasons as head coach, compiling a 28-7 record from 1998-2000, including two Gulf South Conference titles and two appearances in the NCAA Division II playoffs. With an .800 winning percentage, he left as the winningest coach in Gulf South Conference history.

In 1998 Spencer was named the NCAA Division II Regional Coach of the Year by the American Football Coaches Association after guiding the Braves to a 10-2 record.
