Sept. 23, 2013 ATLANTA (AP) -- Coach Paul Johnson says Georgia Tech players who joined a show of solidarity for NCAA reform should have first given all players on the team a chance to vote on the idea.
Johnson said Monday coaches and most players had no idea quarterback Vad Lee, linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu and a few other players were carrying the letters APU -- for All Players United -- on wristbands in Saturday's 28-20 win over North Carolina. Johnson says he first learned of the message after the game.
Some players from Georgia and Northwestern also had the letters APU on their gear Saturday in a show of solidarity for changes in the NCAA.
Johnson says if the full team voted to support the drive, "then certainly they have that right."
