Howard: Johnson's legacy is cemented (1:13)

My favorite Paul Johnson story: After his team beat Georgia for a second straight time at Sanford Stadium in 2016, officials went to the visiting locker room to present him with the Governor's Cup. They found him staring at the ceiling and asked what he was doing. "Looking for a place for the sign," he said. What sign? "The Paul Johnson visitor's locker room," he replied. "I own this (expletive) place."

Ga. Tech's Johnson to step down after 'good run'

Paul Johnson, who ranks fourth in Georgia Tech history with 82 wins in his 11 seasons, will step down after this year's bowl game, his ninth with the Yellow Jackets.

Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson is expected to retire, sources tell ESPN. Assistant coaches have been pulled off of the recruiting trail, and a team meeting is set for 2:30 p.m. today, according to sources. Los Angeles Chargers offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, who played at Georgia Tech, is a top candidate to replace Johnson, I'm told. Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott also could be in the mix. Johnson, 61, went 82-59 in 11 seasons at Georgia Tech, guiding the Yellow Jackets to two Orange Bowls and nine bowl appearances (including this year).

It's usually Georgia Tech that tries to keep the ball away from opponents. But the Yellow Jackets ran only six plays in the first quarter at Georgia, their fewest offensive plays in a quarter in the past 15 seasons, according to ESPN Stats & Info.

Georgia Tech answers with 100-yard kickoff return TD (0:44)

Georgia Tech's Juanyeh Thomas had a 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, giving the Yellow Jackets a much-needed big play after they fell behind Georgia by two touchdowns. He had a 77-yard return for a touchdown against Virginia last week.

One thing to watch for Georgia on Saturday: linebacker Monty Rice is out with a foot injury. He's Georgia's most experienced linebacker against Georgia Tech's triple-option offense. Rice is on the sideline using crutches.
