Johnson was 83-59 in 11 seasons at Georgia Tech. His best season with GT came in 2014 when the Yellow Jackets went 11-3 with an Orange Bowl victory. Prior to his time in Atlanta, the Western Carolina University alum spent six seasons at Navy where he had a record of 45-29.
The total number of ACC schools involved in coaching changes now is three (Louisville, North Carolina), although Johnson is the only one of those coaches to go out on his own terms.
