Johnson coached six years at Navy and in 2007 his Midshipmen won a fifth straight Commander-In-Chief's Trophy, earned a postseason bowl bid for the fifth consecutive year and beat Notre Dame for the first time since 1963. In six seasons at Navy, Johnson compiled a record of 45-29. He recently completed his 11th season as a college head coach, compiling a career record of 107-39.
In his first season at Georgia Tech, Johnson has surprised a lot of people and is a contender in the ACC. His critics said that his triple option offense could not work in the ACC but so far he has proven his critics wrong.
