According to a report from CBS’ Bruce Feldman, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson is apparently very unhappy with the program, and may be looking to get bought out of his current contract.
Word is #GaTech coach Paul Johnson is not happy with the school. Hopes they buy him out, according to a source.

This piece of news is just something else to add to what has been a terrible week for the Ramblin’ Wreck. On Monday, they were outlasted in a close contest in the Music City Bowl by the Ole Miss Rebels, 25-17. Then, on Thursday, news broke that starting quarterback Vad Lee would be transferring, siting that Johnson’s famous triple-option offense really isn’t his thing.
Back in 2009, Johnson and the school agreed on an extension that carries him through the year 2016, so they would have to buy out the final three years of the contract.
Under Johnson, the most success the program has seen was winning the 2009 ACC Championship.
Otherwise, it hasn’t exactly been a dream run under the former Navy coach.
