1. New Coach

Starting next season, Bill Curry will no longer be the head coach for Georgia State.  With the help of the company Parker Executive Search, Georgia State Athletics has already started the search for a new coach. According to athletic director Cheryl Levick, the school’s plan is to hire the new coach no later than the beginning of next year so that he can start recruiting as early as possible.

 2. Tougher/longer schedule and a new conference

As of last week, Georgia State announced the football team’s schedule for the 2013 season, which is the Panthers’ first time in the Sun Belt Conference, a tougher conference than the CAA. Georgia State scheduled 12 games for next season, one more game than this one. Also, the team will hit the road to face SEC powerhouses Alabama and West Virginia.

3. More moeny will come in for Georgia Sate

Georgia State has several match ups with high profile programs in the next few seasons.  The games will provide the Panthers with experience and possibly national media coverage.  Not to mention hefty additions to the Georgia State bank account.
