Earlier today, it was reported that Georgia Tech head football coach Paul Johnson was unhappy with his employer and is hoping for a buyout of his contract from the school. The original report came from Bruce Feldman of CBS Sports: Word is #GaTech coach Paul Johnson is not happy with the school. Hopes they buy him out, according to a source. — Bruce Feldman (@BFeldmanCBS) January 3, 2014 This afternoon, Johnson himself has released a statement via Georgia Tech athletics — he is completely refuting the rumors: .@GTPaulJohnson on @BFeldmanCBS tweet: “The rumors on social media are not true. I plan being head coach at #GaTech into the future.”(1/2) — Georgia Tech Sports (@GTAthletics) January 3, 2014 .@GTPaulJohnson on @BFeldmanCBS tweet: “I look forward to finishing up recruiting and getting ready for the 2014 season.” (2/2) — Georgia Tech Sports (@GTAthletics) January 3, 2014 There it is, straight from the coach’s mouth — it will be interesting to see if this story dies here or if it continues to have legs.
