ATLANTA (AP) -- Coach Paul Johnson believes Georgia Tech has found the right solution at quarterback.
Tevin Washington starts, plays two series and then watches two series from the sideline while Vad Lee runs Johnson's spread option offense.
The Yellow Jackets debuted their new approach in a 33-13 victory last week at Maryland.
Washington, a fifth-year senior in his second full season as a starter, is tough to defend near the goal line. His 34 career rushing touchdowns are one shy of tying the Atlantic Coast Conference record held by former teammate Joshua Nesbitt.
Johnson says that Lee, a redshirt freshman, brings athleticism and energy to the field.
The Yellow Jackets (4-5, 3-3 ACC) have won two of three as they prepare to visit North Carolina (6-3, 3-2) on Saturday.
