I swear – if Paul Johnson didn’t exist, we’d have to invent him.
Paul Johnson is a leader at a school that lives on the cutting edge of science and technology.
In at least one aspect of his job, though, the Georgia Tech coach finds technology to be an unwelcome intrusion…
Johnson has an understandable opposition to a rule that would enable opposing coaches to watch in-game replays of his unorthodox offense.
“I think it takes away coaching,” he said in an interview earlier this year. “That was one of the things I always liked to think I was decent at, was looking out there and seeing what was going on. Now, anybody can do it if they can sit up there and look at the monitor and run it back.”
Buy a laptop and you, too, can be a head football coach, my friends. Yes, apparently it’s that easy.
If only he could find a recruiting app.
