George O'Leary is a beloved coach by a couple of colleges. This is evident in the fact that he is going into the Georgia Tech Hall of Fame and probably more halls of fame down the road. His induction is well earned as he was a key figure in making Georgia Tech a player in the ACC, even winning a conference title in 1998. He is a two-time ACC Coach of the Year and won NCAA Coach of the Year while coaching the Yellow Jackets.
His time at UCF was just as, if not more successful. Taking a team that went 0-11 in his first year and turning them into a C-USA powerhouse and eventually an AAC power. He finished with four conference titles and a couple Coach of the Year awards.
