Watch: Paul Johnson, before Georgia Tech

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has not changed a lot physically since he was Georgia Southern’s coach 20 years ago. His philosophy hasn’t changed much either.

Johnson has been the Jackets’ coach since 2008, following successful stints at Georgia Southern (1997-2001) and Navy (2002-2007). 

He’s stressed running the football at every stop and the Jackets will try to do the same thing Saturday against rival Georgia.

Watch the video above to see Johnson at Georgia Southern and Navy.
