Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson has announced he will retire after the Yellow Jacket's bowl game. The 61-year old has been Georgia Tech's head coach for eleven seasons, following stints with Georgia Southern and Navy.
Georgia Tech was the last Power Five team to use the option as their primary offense, a staple of Paul Johnson's scheme. He heavily influenced the option offense currently run by both Navy and Army. Both their head coaches coached under Johnson.
Johnson went 189-98 in a head coaching career that spanned over 20 years, winning the ACC Coastal division a total of four times.
