Report: Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson unhappy with school, seeking buyout
Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson is reportedly not happy with the school and hopes that the university buys him out of his contract, according to CBSSports.com’s Bruce Feldman.
Johnson quickly responded saying about the report “there’s nothing to it” and that he plans to coach the team next season.
Johnson is under contract until 2016 after signing an extension in 2009 and has a $7.5 million buyout.
Johnson, a two-time ACC Coach of the Year, is 48-32 in six seasons at Georgia Tech, including a 7-6 mark this season. But Georgia Tech has only one win in their last five bowl games, including a 25-17 loss to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl last week.
This week, Tech’s starting quarterback Vad Lee announced plans to transfer, telling ESPN.com’s Joe Schad, “The triple option was never really my thing.”
