Georgia Tech worked quickly to fill their opening at the head coaching position, announcing the hiring of program alum Aileen Morales to fill the role.

Morales, most recently the head coach at Radford, makes the move back to Georgia for the first time since 2013, her last season as an assistant on the Yellow Jackets staff.

Morales has led Radford to sixty-two wins in her two seasons at the helm; her resume also includes two years at Young Harris, a Division II school, as well as time as an assistant coach with the Yellow Jackets following the completion of her playing days.

As a player, Morales earned three all-conference honors, as well as the ACC's Co-Freshman of the Year award in 2005. She was named an all-American in 2007. She continues to hold four program records, including for games played (265) and stolen bases in a career (!54).

Morales spent two seasons in the NPF following her collegiate playing career and was a part of the championship-winning 2008 Bandits squad.

The Yellow Jackets finished 2017 in ninth place in the ACC with a 19-34 overall mark, but an 8-16 mark in conference play.
