Paul Johnson Retires: Details On Georgia Tech Football Coach


The Georgia Tech football program is set to undergo a major change. After 11 years, Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson is set to retire. Johnson has spent 22 years as a head coach with additional stops at Georgia Southern and Navy.

Johnson compiled an 82-59 overall record at Georgia Tech including an ACC Championship, four divisional titles, and three ACC Coach of the Year nods.

“Sources have told me that Georgia Tech football coach Paul Johnson will retire from coaching,” ESPN 93.1’s Bill Shanks wrote on Twitter. “Johnson has been at Georgia Tech since 2008. He compiled a 82-59 record in his 11 years on the job. Georgia Tech will be looking for a new head coach.”

Jeff Schultz of the Athletic confirmed the news.

With Johnson, who fell in love with the triple-option, set to leave the Yellow Jackets sidelines, it will be interesting to see what the future holds and how the offense will develop.

It could also be huge news for Georgia Tech’s recruiting efforts after they have struggled to draw the attention of top quarterback and wide receiver recruits throughout the years — with former Detroit Lion Calvin Johnson being the exception.

This season, Georgia Tech compiled a 7-5 overall record with a 5-3 mark in conference play.

The team will now wait to see which opponent they will face in postseason play.
