ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson says he's not concerned about his job security and is proud of his record during nine seasons with the Yellow Jackets.
Johnson brought up the issue Tuesday when asked whether an upset win at Virginia Tech last weekend helped ease some of the disappointments of the past two seasons.
Georgia Tech went 3-9 a year ago and endured a three-game losing streak this season, but the Yellow Jackets (6-4, 3-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) have bounced back to become bowl eligible. They face Virginia (2-8, 1-5) in their home finale Saturday.
Johnson's future has been the subject of much speculation, especially with Georgia Tech bringing on a new athletic director, Todd Stansbury. The coach says he thinks the questions are largely driven by the media.
