RICHMOND, Va. — Al Groh says he's heading to Georgia Tech to be the Yellow Jackets' defensive coordinator.

The former Virginia coach told The Associated Press on Friday that he set out several criteria before deciding where he wanted to coach in 2010, and Georgia Tech meets them. The top priority was taking a job where there's a chance to win championships.

The Yellow Jackets are coming off their first outright ACC title since 1990 and played in the Orange Bowl. But they struggled on defense, firing coordinator Dave Wommack shortly after the season.

Groh was fired after nine seasons as Virginia's head coach.
