Bobby Cremins trying to help his old team

      ATLANTA (AP) -- Bobby Cremins is rallying Georgia Tech's old-timers for the program's new coach.

      Cremins, who retired in March as the College of Charleston's coach, was back at Georgia Tech on Wednesday. Cremins says he is recruiting former players, assistant coaches and student managers to return as a show of support for second-year coach Brian Gregory when Georgia Tech opens its new arena Nov. 9 against Tulane.

      The 65-year-old Cremins was Georgia Tech's coach for 19 years -- from 1981-2000. His name was placed on Georgia Tech's court at its old Alexander Memorial Coliseum in 2003. The court at the new McCamish Pavilion also will bear his name.

      Cremins says his first priority is still at the College of Charleston as a part-time assistant to the school's president, George Benson.
