Georgia Tech president Bud Peterson announced Wednesday Bobinski will be introduced at a news conference on the Georgia Tech campus on Friday and will begin his new job on April 1. Bobinski was hired as athletic director at Xavier in 1998. In 2004, he was named associate vice president for development and was in charge of the university's fundraising efforts.
