Paul Johnson Retiring From Ga Tech / Hires Geoff Collins

Congrats to Georgia Tech fans wanting to watch non-option football each week.
That job will be a tough one though to fill.
Annual games with Clemson/Georgia.
It’s a solid job but not really as easy as it looks.
 
Good.

He did a good job there. If not for their academics, this could be the best job opening of the year so far.

What program is better in the Coastal. Easy job.
 
Would they keep the same offense by staying in house? That Will Smart DT may be in play...
 

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson is expected to retire, sources tell ESPN. Assistant coaches have been pulled off of the recruiting trail, and a team meeting is set for 2:30 p.m. today, according to sources. Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who played at Georgia Tech, is a top candidate to replace Johnson, I'm told. Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott also could be in the mix. Johnson, 61, went 82-59 in 11 seasons at Georgia Tech, guiding the Yellow Jackets to two Orange Bowls and nine bowl appearances (including this year).
 
Atlanta is too rich of a recruiting ground to keep running the option. Going to have to go pro style or uptempo with the next hire.
 
What program is better in the Coastal. Easy job.
Miami, North Carolina, Virginia Tech are better jobs.

Miami-location, recruits in backyard.
North Carolina- national brand, great state, underrated access to recruits.
Virginia Tech- history of being medicore to top 25, good talent in state, crowd support.
Georgia Tech has tougher schedule with Georgia and Clemson every year.
 
How was he not fired all this time? He averaged a 7.5 and 5.5 record there

UNC has no football brand. Who gives an F about BBall. Their fans suck and their recruiting situation is worse.

Miami has so much going against it as a program. Until they commit to football that job sucks.

VA Tech is on par.

What does playing UGA every year have to do with winning the Coastal?
 
please hire Wisenhunt, he will probably have them buried by the time we play them in 2020. If they want to keep running the triple option, gotta go with the Army dude or Fritz but maybe they are moving on from it. Either way, Wisenhunt sounds like a lame choice if that ends up happening
 
pretty good chance that who ever GT hires and Mac brown and mark Richt and Fuentes are all gone before we play any of them again.

lets hope our guy is still here.
 
Nine bowl gams including two Orange Bowls in eleven years.

And he should have been fired?

If you are BC? No, even though he might be on the way out.

They had a better program the 11 years prior to his arrival. When you take the program down a notch that usually gets you fired.

Went to a Bowl every year the prior 11 years and averaged 7.8 and 4.7 which likely would be 8.4 wins if they had 12 game schedules back then. That is nearly a full win per season more.
