ATLANTA (AP) Georgia Tech players say they'll have extra motivation to send coach Paul Johnson out with a win when they play Minnesota in the Quick Lane Bowl.
The 61-year-old Johnson announced on Nov. 28 he is stepping down after 11 seasons with the Yellow Jackets. Geoff Collins was hired from Temple as Georgia Tech's new coach on Friday, but Johnson will coach the bowl game.
"Going out with your coach, that's pretty cool, you know?" senior wide receiver Brad Stewart said Tuesday. "That's not something people can say every day. ... It's unique to kind of go out with coach Johnson and be by his side."
