Georgia Tech AD diagnosed with Crohn's disease, quits work

It is reported here and elsewhere that Dave Braine, the longtime athletic director at Georgia Tech and earlier at Virginia Tech, has quit his job because of Crohn's disease.

Besides Va. Tech, Braine's background includes stints at VMI, Richmond, and Virginia:

"After teaching and coaching at Manatee High School in Bradenton, Fla., he joined the Virginia Military Institute football staff as a freshman coach in the spring of 1967, kicking off his long career in collegiate athletics. Later he coached at Richmond from 1971-73, highlighted by the Spiders' 1971 Southern Conference title and Tangerine Bowl berth. After two seasons as an assistant coach at Tech, Braine moved to Virginia as administrative assistant and secondary coach under Dick Bestwick in 1976. In 1978, he became assistant athletic director at Virginia."
