Paul Johnson Retires Following Humiliating Loss At Georgia


After 11 seasons as Head Coach of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, Paul Johnson has announced his retirement. His last game as coach was this past Sunday’s defeat at UGA where his team was handily defeated 45 to 21.

61 year old Johnson finishes his tenure at Tech with a respectable 82-59 record, along with 9 bowl game appearances including this season.

Although Georgia Tech have had competitive teams in during Paul Johnson’s reign, the development of the program has stagnated as of late. Georgia Tech has struggled to recruit, and finished this season with a 7-5 record.

I imagine Tech fans will have some fond memories of Paul Johnson, but his last game at Sanford stadium will not be one of them. Georgia outscored the yellow jackets 38-7 in the first half in a dominant team performance.

Paul Johnson is one of the last coaches to run an option-centered offense with practically no passing, as he utilized at Navy before he went to Georgia Tech. It will be interesting to see what type of style Georgia Tech will enact next year with Johnson moved on.

According to sources, Los Angeles Chargers Offensive Coordinator Ken Whisenhunt is being looked at as a potential replacement.
