Georgia Rival Looking For A New Head Coach 


Georgia Tech announced today that head coach Paul Johnson will retire effective after the Yellow Jacket’s bowl game next month.

In a press release, Johnson stated “After 40 years of coaching, it’s time to take a break. My family has sacrificed a lot over the years. I want to watch my daughter perform and do some things with my wife that we’ve never had a chance to do. It’s been a great run for the last 11 years here on The Flats. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished and am looking forward to having the chance to coach this team one last time at our bowl game next month.”

Johnson, 61, is in his 22nd season as a head coach, with previous stops at Navy and Georgia Southern. He had an 83-59 record at Tech but was only 3-8 against Georgia. The Yellow Jackets finished this season 7-5 and second in the ACC Coastal Division.

Many saw his spread-option offense a bit archaic but it was effective, frustrated opponents, controlled the clock and put points on the board. Johnson answered his critics by saying he passed the ball as much as other programs, they just tossed the ball backward.
