    Keep an Eye on Brian Bohannon

    Former GT assistant coach under Paul Johnson, Brian Bohannon, is making his mark at Kennesaw State. 6-5 in last season's inaugural year and this season will probably be better.

    Someday when Johnson hangs it up, could Bohannon be a solid candidate to take over at GT? Bohannon knows the state of Georgia and the southeast and is known as a very good recruiter.

    Since Bohannon coached the QBs/BBs at GT I wondered how much he was missed last season.

    Great point, Jim. I do think that because Bohannon is a UGA grad he is more fit to take over the Triple Option Offense and run it in Athens. Do you know how unstoppable they would be with a Gurley, a Marshall, and a Chubb all in the same backfield? Throw Michel at slot back...

    If we can average 38.8 points per game and lead the country in rushing in 2014 with our recruiting classes, Imagine what his alma mater UGA would do with their players in the offense. The only hang up some recruits say is all the NFL teams run pro style. But guess what? We've still had tons of receivers, two RB (Dwyer and Allen, Laskey) drafted and our OLineman get drafted too (Shaq Mason, Andrew Gardner).

    They would be smart almost too smart to start running it in Athens.

    On a more realistic note I see Bryan Cook or Lamar Owens taking the reigns when CPJ retires in say 15 years.

    Bryan Cook loves GT and has a great appreciation of Atlanta, the lakes we have in North GA, the OCeans in Southeast Georgia, and the Farmland around Atlanta. He knows Georgia's quality of life is second to California.

    No chance. A UGA graduate will never be the Head Coach of a Georgia Tech football team.

    Go Jackets!

    If johnson is still coaching Tech in 15 years it will be only because we are division 2 football and no one really cares any more.Johnson will have killed Tech football and some of you who think he is the best Tech can get will be responsible.

    Jerry, I see Brian Bo beating UGA at Bobby Dodd and you carrying him off the field on your shoulders and parading him down North Avenue to the Varsity.

    Bryan Cook or Lamar Owens are my #1 and #2 candidates to replace CPJ. Frankly if we have another 2014 type season this year or next, CPJ will get another 5 year extension. I do not see him leaving GT before 2025 unless we just fall off the map, and I do not see that happening.

    Brian Bohannon makes only like 210 K at Kennesaw so he can stay there. we don't want a UGA guy at Tech. And that's the bottom line.

    It puts us in the best position to win. If we don't run a gimmick offense, it's hard for us, given our recruiting, to compete with most ACC and SEC schools.

    Further, CPJ recruiting has been good enough to put us in two orange bowls, three ACCGs, and two wins in Athens.

    A lot of people here need to be on medication if you think CPJ is not the best thing that happened to us since Bobby Ross.

    It's not even close. Name me one head coach who can win four coastals in eight years. Not Richt, Not even SABAN at Tech. He'd get the same recruits. and go 6-5. CPJ goes 10-2 with a win in Athens, a drubbing of top ten Clemson, and an epic comeback 4th quarter win in Blacksburg (2014).
