Johnson likely will have plenty of options to replace Cook, particularly given the upward moves that Bohannon and Cook have made from Tech. One in-house candidate is assistant football operations director Craig Candeto, who previously was a head coach at Division III Capital University for three seasons and before that was quarterbacks/B-backs coach for two seasons at The Citadel. He also played quarterback for Johnson at Navy and was a graduate assistant at Tech for one season.
Another is A-backs coach Lamar Owens, who has held that role since 2010 and also played quarterback for Johnson at Navy.
The hire was first reported by Scout.
