Georgia Tech is signing up for two more years with the genius.
Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson has received one more confirmation of support from athletic director Todd Stansbury, and it’s a little more affirming than a short note left in his office mail slot. While Tech faltered this past season with a 5-6 record, Johnson has agreed in principle on a two-year contract extension, Johnson’s attorney Jack Reale said Thursday.
“I think you can quote me on saying that we’re in the process of negotiating an extension on Coach’s contract and that negotiations are going well and we expect things to be concluded shortly,” Reale told the AJC.
Discussions are to the point that Reale said he was waiting for a draft of the agreement terms.The extension will now carry the contract through the 2022 season, which would be his 15th at Tech, when he will be 65.
