ATLANTA - Georgia Tech and football head coach Paul Johnson have finalized a contract extension deal. Director of Athletics Todd Stansbury made the announcement Friday afternoon.
Johnson will now remain on staff for the Yellow Jackets through the 2022 season.
“Aside from Bobby Dodd, no head coach in Georgia Tech football history has won more games in his first 10 seasons than Paul Johnson,” Stansbury said. “By extending Coach Johnson’s contract through 2022, we not only keep one of the most successful coaches in our illustrious history right here on The Flats, but we also ensure continued stability within our coaching staff."
Johnson has been with Georgia Tech since December 2007. He has led the team to eight bowl games, three bowl wins, three ACC Championship games and had 75 victories in his first 10 seasons.
