CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Georgia Tech and head coach Paul Johnson have agreed in principle to a four-year contract extension through the 2020 season, Director of Athletics Mike Bobinski announced Saturday morning. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Johnson’s current contract was set to expire following the 2016 season.
“I’m pleased to announce an extension of Paul Johnson’s contract,” Bobinski said. “This extension reflects our confidence in the solid foundation Coach Johnson has built for the future success of our program, which reaches beyond the field and includes increasingly strong academic achievement.
“I look forward to Paul Johnson’s continued leadership of our football program and am excited about the possibilities in the years ahead.”
Johnson is 58-34 in seven seasons as Georgia Tech head coach and has led the Yellow Jackets to their third ACC Championship Game appearance in seven seasons. Earlier this week, Johnson was named the 2014 ACC Coach of the Year – his third ACC COY honor as Tech head coach (2008, 2009).
“I am excited that we were able to work out a contract extension,” Johnson said. “I appreciate the support of our fans, students and alumni during my time here. My family and I are looking forward to being a part of Georgia Tech for a long time.”
No. 11 Georgia Tech (10-2) looks to capture its 17th conference championship when it faces No. 4 and defending national champion Florida State (12-0) in the 2014 Dr Pepper ACC Football Championship Game at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
