Asked how often he has communicated with incoming athletic director Todd Stansbury, Johnson said once on the day he was introduced and a second time by text after Saturday’s win against Virginia Tech in Blacksburg.
Stansbury doesn’t start until the end of November. He will be the third athletic director Johnson has worked for at Tech.
“Once again its media-driven about how it’s going to be a huge deal,” Johnson said. “I will coach the football team. He will run athletics.
“If he wants a new football coach I imagine he will get it. I’m going to do my job and he can do his job.”
