GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011

RECORD-BREAKING OFFENSE Georgia Tech’s average of 323.3 yards rushing per game in 2010 not only led the nation, it broke an ACC single-season record. ESPN THURSDAY NIGHT REGULARS The Yellow Jackets will play in an ESPN nationally-televised Thursday night game for the 19th consecutive season when Tech hosts Virginia Tech in November. THE DAYS FAMILY Redshirt freshman quarterback Synjyn Days is joined on the Yellow Jacket team this fall by his brother, true freshman linebacker Jabari Hunt-Days. But perhaps the most interesting story concerning the Days family is that Synjyn’s mother, Paula, was an assistant coach on his middle school team. Paula coached the offensive and defensive lines.

Senior cornerback Michael Peterson and junior wide receiver Daniel McKayhan are both exceptional artists. The Yellow Jacket duo found an unusual spot to hone their painting skills – a multi-level homeless shelter in downtown Atlanta. Peterson earned his degree in the spring and will compete for a starting job at Georgia Tech in the fall. His oil paintings have been featured in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and on NCAA.com.

MODEL OF CONSISTENCY

NCAA INFRACTIONS REPORT

 Georgia Tech has played in a bowl game for 14 consecutive seasons. Tech’s current streak ties for the fourth-longest nationally.  Tech finished last season with at least a .500 record in league play for the 16th consecutive year. That’s an ACC record and the only team nationally with a longer streak is Florida (24 consecutive seasons).

In July of 2011, the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I Committee on Infractions found the Georgia Institute of Technology men's basketball and football programs have committed violations of NCAA regulations. The Institute was cited for a lack of cooperation during the investigation, a failure to meet the conditions and obligations of membership and preferential treatment violations. There were additional violations in the men's basketball program related to rules stemming from a nonscholastic basketball tournament conducted on the Institute's campus, which the public report further details.

WASHINGTON WAS SOLID OFF THE BENCH Sophomore Tevin Washington was pressed into duty in the second half of the Nov. 4 Thursday night game at Virginia Tech after senior starter Joshua Nesbitt went down with a broken arm. While Tech went just 1-3 in his four starts, Washington did an admirable job:  In four starts, Washington averaged 105 yards rushing per game, including 122 vs. Miami and 131 vs. Air Force.  In the regular season finale at Georgia, Washington rushed for two touchdowns.  Nov. 20 against Duke, Washington rushed for 94 yards and a touchdown, and threw for 90 yards including a 79yard TD pass to Stephen Hill.  Washington rushed (122 yards) and passed (101 yards) for more than 100 yards in his first start against Miami. He threw for one TD, did not throw an interception, and led Tech to 409 yards of total offense.  No quarterback in Georgia Tech history rushed for more yards in his first career start. The previous record of 62 yards was set by Kim King in 1965.  Washington was the first QB in Tech history to rush and pass for 100 yards in their first career start.

JOHNSON RANKS HIGH IN APR CBSSports.com compiled the APR (Academic Progress Report) averages of 109 of the 120 coaches in the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) using data provided by the NCAA. CBSSports.com's study is based on the NCAA's available data between 2003-04 and 2009-10 so 11 coaches debuting this season were not included.

After being notified of the allegations in November 2009, Georgia Tech conducted its own internal investigation, forming a committee made up of faculty, staff and external counsel that made recommendations based on available information and the internal investigation findings.

GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011

INTRODUCTION

The home of Yellow Jacket football since 1913

BOBBY DODD STADIUM

Georgia Tech’s storied football facility has been a cornerstone of college football for more than 95 years. Cozily nestled amid Atlanta’s skyscrapers, Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field is easily one of the nation’s most unique settings for college football. Originally built in 1913 by members of the Georgia Tech student body, Bobby Dodd Stadium at Historic Grant Field is the oldest on-campus stadium in NCAA Division IA, but the venerable stadium has added another chapter to its storied history with a new look and an expanded capacity. Completed in 2003, a two-year expansion and renovation raised capacity to 55,000 seats and added numerous amenities. The $75 million endeavor included the expansion and renovation of Bobby Dodd Stadium/Grant Field and the rebuilt Russ Chandler Stadium, Tech’s 4,157-seat baseball facility. The focal point of the project was the North end zone structure, which seats 15,678 in two levels and also includes 10 luxury suites and the Howard Ector Letterwinners Lounge. The complex also features the 7,000-square foot Kim King Football Locker Room, a 3,300-square foot players’ lounge, the Jones Media Room, and coaches’ offices that overlook Grant Field. In addition to the rebuilt seating area, the lower East structure features 20 executive suites as well as 2,040 chair-backed club seats between the 25-yard lines and a private air-conditioned lounge for those patrons. At the South end of Bobby Dodd Stadium, 2,970 seats were added in front of the Wardlaw Building, providing seating in the South end zone for the first time since 1985. The South end zone seating and the lower levels of the East and North stands form a three-sided bowl. Construction began following the 2001 season, with the first phase completed for the 2002 season, when capacity was 43,719. The first phase saw the completion of the lower bowl seating in the South, East and North areas of the stadium. A new natural grass playing surface and drainage system was installed, and the field was shifted approximately 30 feet to the north and 15 feet to the west. Program management was provided by Carter/Turner, a joint venture of Carter & Associates

and Turner Construction, while HOK Sport was the project’s architect. Georgia Tech’s football facility was known as Grant Field until April of 1988, when the Georgia State Board of Regents voted to add the name Bobby Dodd Stadium in honor of the legendary coach who guided the Rambling Wreck to its most illustrious football era. A member of the National Football Foundation College Football Hall of Fame, Dodd compiled a 165-64-8 record from 1945-66, and tutored 21 All-Americans as he led Tech to 13 bowl trips during his 22-year stay as head coach. Dodd served as Tech’s director of athletics from 1951-76 and then worked as a consultant for the alumni association until his death in 1988 for a 57-year association with the Institute. The name change was the first for the facility since it was named Hugh Inman Grant Field in 1914 after a gift from John W. Grant, a member of the Tech Board of Trustees and a well-known Atlanta merchant. The Grant family did not give the land on which Grant Field is built. However, they did give the initial $15,000 used in 1913 to build the first permanent concrete stands on the west side of the field. In gratitude for the gift, the Board of Trustees named the field Hugh Inman Grant Field in memory of Grant’s deceased son. The students who built Grant Field more than 95 years ago wouldn’t recognize the home of Georgia Tech football if they saw it now. Not only has the skyline around the stadium changed dramatically, but the facility has steadily grown and improved during its rich history. Tech actually began playing football on this site in 1905, but in 1913, the original concrete West Stands were largely built by Tech students and seated 5,600. The concrete East Stands were completed in time for the 1924 season. A year later, the South Stands were finished, bringing the seating capacity to approximately 30,000. In 1947, the West Stands were rebuilt, which raised the capacity to 40,000, and a new press box was added. The North Stands were erected in 1958 to bring the seating to 44,105. A second deck was added to the East side in 1962, increasing capacity to 53,300. The facility was expanded again in 1967, when the West Stands were double-decked to bring capacity to 58,121. That project also included new press and photo levels, including an elevator.

Following the 1985 season, the historic South Stands, which formed the familiar Ushape on North Avenue, were razed. In their place is the William C. Wardlaw Center, a multi-purpose facility for Georgia Tech’s athletic and academic departments that was opened in 1988. Seating capacity was reduced to 46,000. A major renovation was completed prior to the 1992 season with the construction of the Bill Moore Student Success Center behind the West Stands, as well as the addition of 32 executive suites, the renovation of the President’s Box and press level, and the addition of the Roy Richards Festival concourse area under the West Stands. Natural grass returned to Grant Field in 1995 after 24 seasons with artificial turf. The field was originally surfaced with Astroturf in 1971 and resurfaced in 1979, and then new artificial All-Pro Turf was installed in 1988. Bobby Dodd Stadium/Grant Field is located at the heart of the Georgia Tech campus on Techwood Drive, bordered by North Avenue on the south and Bobby Dodd Way on the north. Tech has hosted numerous crowds which have exceeded capacity, the largest of which was the 60,316 spectators for the Georgia game in 1973. Georgia Tech continues to make improvements to the facility on a yearly basis. The most recent and visible addition is a new, larger video board and ribbon boards installed just in time for the start of the 2009 season. Renovations were also done in 2009 on the Festival level of the West side and throughout the stadium. In the 98 autumns since Grant Field was erected, legends from Clint Castleberry to George Morris to Joe Hamilton to Calvin Johnson have played here, and Paul Johnson joins coaching giants such as John Heisman and Bobby Dodd in patrolling the Grant Field sideline. Four national title teams and 15 conference champions have showcased their skills on the Flats, and Grant Field was the site of one of the most famous games ever played, Tech’s 222-0 win over Cumberland in 1916. Today’s Bobby Dodd Stadium seats 55,000 fans in a modern, comfortable facility that embraces the tradition that has made Tech’s venerable stadium a cornerstone of college football for nearly a century.

John and Mary Brock Football Practice Facility Georgia Tech's football program has an indoor practice facility, thanks to a commitment from Mary R. and John F. Brock III, ChE 70, MS ChE 71. The John and Mary Brock Football Practice Facility will officially open in early August -- in time for the start of the Yellow Jackets’ preseason camp. A member of both the Georgia Tech Foundation and the Alexander-Tharpe Fund boards, Brock also chaired his 40th reunion committee last year. He previously served as a member of the Georgia Tech Advisory Board and his 25th reunion committee, and he was named a College of Engineering Distinguished Alumnus in 1996. Brock also provided funding for two Georgia Research Alliance chairs and eminent scholars in cancer research at both Georgia Tech and Emory University. Additionally, the Brocks have established the Brock Family Fund, which supports the Child and Adolescent Moods Disorder Program at Emory, and established an undergraduate scholarship for the Georgia Tech School of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. Head Coach Paul Johnson "It gives us a place here on campus that we can practice in bad weather and get in during storms plus it will help in recruiting. It is something that we needed so it was awfully kind of John and Mary to do that." Georgia Tech Athletic Director Dan Radakovich "Early in Coach Paul Johnson's tenure, we discussed the importance of having a place where the team could practice away from the elements. There have been times recently when we have used the Georgia Dome or the Falcon's practice facility in Flowery Branch for practice. But it has become increasingly difficult for us to utilize those spaces efficiently. This new facility will provide us with significantly more efficiency in scheduling our practice sessions. "John and Mary Brock are tremendous friends of Georgia Tech and its athletic program. They genuinely enjoy supporting our athletes and watching them compete. We are elated that they have chosen to build this state-of-the-art facility on our campus." Highlights • Official Name: Mary R. and John F.

Yellow Jackets

GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011

Tech must replace 11 starters, but a solid spring and a revamped attitude has created optimism on the Flats

2011 OUTLOOK Georgia Tech will still run it’s prolific spread option offense and 3-4 defense, and every member of the Yellow Jacket coaching staff returns this fall. Almost everything else, it seems, has changed since the 2010 season ended on a disappointing note with a loss to Air Force in the Advocare V100 Independence Bowl:  The Yellow Jackets have a new indoor practice facility -- the John and Mary Brock Football Facility -- that will open its doors in time for early August practices.  Construction has started on new meeting rooms and a spacious team auditorium.  Tech will begin its season without quarterback Joshua Nesbitt under center for the first time in the Paul Johnson era.  There will be at least 11 new starters in 2011 after half of the starting lineup either graduated or departed early for the NFL.  Perhaps most importantly, however, is a new attitude that has permeated the team. Last season’s 6-7 record, on the heels of a 2009 ACC championship and Orange Bowl appearance, taught the Yellow Jackets a valuable lesson. “I think there was a sense of complacency to a degree,” Johnson said of his team’s approach to the 2010 season. “When you win nine games the first year and then you win 11 games, I think some guys just think, ‘Well, this is going to happen again.’ It doesn’t work like that.” In 15 productive and physical spring practices, there was better camaraderie among the players and a sense of accountability. As Adam van Brimmer wrote in Buzz Magazine, the spring was more a matter of “we” than “me.” The spring was also a success on the field. Other than redshirt freshman defensive lineman Shawn Green’s broken leg, there were no significant injuries. “The spring was productive and we got some things accomplished,” Johnson said, “but we have a long way to go.” One of the positives from spring practice was the improvement of the defense, which ranked 78th nationally last season in rushing defense and 64th in total defense. The Yellow Jackets seemed much more familiar and comfortable with second-year defensive coordinator Al Groh’s 3-4 scheme. “Every defense has to eventually decide what they want to become known for, what their identity is going to be. That’s half of the deal,” Groh said. “The other half is the learning and execution of the schemes. We put an emphasis on both those areas in the spring and we think we moved down the road in both cases.” On offense, junior Tevin Washington and redshirt freshman Synjyn Days competed to take over at quarterback for Nesbitt, the most prolific rushing QB in ACC history. While Days had the better spring game, Washington enters the fall on top of the depth chart based on his body of work during the spring, coupled with the experience he gained late last season after Nesbitt broke his arm in mid-November at Virginia Tech. The Yellow Jackets also looked for a replacement at B-back for Anthony Allen, who rushed for more than 1,300 yards in 2010. While no single player emerged in the spring, Johnson enters the fall comfortable with a committee of four players who could all see action.

Who’s Gone In Johnson’s first two seasons, Georgia Tech won 20 games, capturing its first outright ACC title since the early 1990s. It was the best two-year run on the Flats since the 1950s. The 2008 and 2009 Tech teams put up eye-popping numbers on offense, limited its turnovers, took advantage of opponent miscues and absolutely dominated time of possession. Last season, not so much. The offense committed 27 turnovers and the defense forced just 21 opponent turnovers. The Jacket defense had difficulty stopping the run, allowing opponents to control the clock and keep Tech’s big-play offense off the field. And unlike 2008 and 2009, after putting together lengthy drives, last year’s squad had difficulty punching it into the end zone. Tech lost five of its final six games to finish with a losing record for the first time since 1996. Three of those losses -- close defeats at Virginia Tech and Georgia, and against Air Force in the bowl game -- came with Nesbitt, Tech’s senior leader, on the sidelines. In addition to Nesbitt, Tech’s offense lost Anthony Allen, who gave Tech a 1,000yard rusher for the fourth straight season and was drafted in the seventh round by the Baltimore Ravens. Two-time All-ACC center Sean Bedford graduated, immediately played professionally in Spain and is expected to enter law school in his hometown at the University of Florida. Also gone from the offense is wide receiver Kevin Cone, who started but caught just five passes, and junior offensive tackle Nick Claytor, who inexplicably gave up his senior season to enter the NFL draft. On defense, the Jackets lost a pair of senior starting linebackers, Brad Jefferson on the inside and Anthony Egbuniwe on the outside. Also gone are all four starting defensive backs, including Jerrard Tarrant, another player who bolted school a year early but was undrafted. One of Tech’s biggest losses was Scott Blair, the kicking specialist who ranks among the school’s most prolific scorers and accurate field goal kickers.

Quarterback -- Junior Tevin Washington earned the right to enter fall practice listed first on the depth chart. Washington played well in a difficult situation last season. After Nesbitt broke his arm late in the first half in a nationally-televised game at Virginia Tech, Washington played the entire second half and nearly rallied the Jackets to a win before falling 28-21 to the Hokies. In his first career start, Washington rushed for 122 yards against Miami. Redshirt freshman Synjyn Days closed the spring in impressive fashion. In the spring game he rushed for 112 yards, accounted for two touchdowns and didn’t commit a turnover. “We’re going to play the guy who gives us the best chance to win,” Johnson said. “Sometimes winning the game is not losing it, being able to manage and do those kind of things.” A pair of true freshmen -- Vad Lee and Demond Smith -- will get their opportunities as well. B-Back -- Johnson expects the B-back position to produce 1,000 rushing yards, although it may be done by committee. Senior Preston Lyons, a solid blocker and straight-ahead rusher, was a top back-up for Jonathan Dwyer in 2009 and Anthony Allen in 2010. Redshirt freshman Charles Perkins has tons of potential and can play both the B-back and A-back positions. Junior Richard Watson, who has seen limited action the last two seasons, is also in the mix, as is sophomore David Sims, a converted quarterback.


Yellow Jackets

GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011

The Defense Defensive Line -- The most experienced, veteran unit on the team may be the defensive line. All three starters -- senior end Jason Peters, senior tackle Logan Walls and junior end Izaan Cross -- return this fall.

Peters, who has played in 36 career games, had 52 tackles and five tackles for loss in his first season as an every-game starter last season. Cross had 41 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and he broke up four passes. The back-ups at end include sophomores Euclid Cummings and Emmanuel Dieke, who saw limited action in 2010. Sophomore Christopher Crenshaw and redshirt freshman Anthony Williams are also listed on the depth chart. Walls enters his third season as a starter, his second at tackle in the 3-4. He has 23 career starts and has show improvement every fall. Junior T.J. Barnes, a solid reserve the last two seasons, has the size (6-7, 333) to be a force. Redshirt freshmen Shawn Green and Denzel McCoy, if healthy, could be factors. Linebacker -- While just two of four starting linebackers return, the position could very well be improved from a year ago. Roddy Jones Junior inside linebacker Julian Burnett began the 2010 season on the bench, but eventually cracked the starting lineup and went on to lead the team in tackles (89). Burnett, 5-10, caused two fumbles, recovered a fumble and had an interception last season. Joining Burnett on the inside will be sophomore Daniel Drummond, a converted B-back who has yet to play in a college game, or redshirt freshman Quayshawn Nealy, who was impressive in the spring. Junior B.J. Machen is among those competing for back-up roles. The Yellow Jackets have at least three potential standouts at outside linebacker. Senior Steven Sylvester enters his third season as a starter. Last season he recorded 10.5 tackles for loss, 3.0 sacks and three fumble recoveries. On the other side is a budding star, sophomore Jeremiah Attaochu, who started in the bowl game last season as a true freshman. Sophomore Brandon Watts, a part-time starter a year ago, moves from inside to outside linebacker this fall. Junior Malcolm Munroe will be expected to play a bigger role in 2011. Secondary -- Georgia Tech has zero returning starters in the secondary. Technically, that’s an accurate statement, but the Yellow Jackets have a corps of talented, experienced defensive backs. In fact, despite losing three starting seniors and junior Jerrard Tarrant, who left early to enter the NFL, the secondary could be stronger than ever. Junior Rod Sweeting and sophomore Louis Young enter August atop the depth chart at cornerback, with redshirt freshman Ryan Ayers and senior Michael Peterson listed as the back-ups. Sweeting played in all 13 games last season, broke up seven passes, recovered a fumble and had one interception. Young played significant snaps last season as a true freshman and was a key member of special teams. Ayers is an impressive speedster, while Peterson is a veteran with 38 career games played under his belt. Also look for junior Jemea Thomas, who can play any position in the secondary. He played as a true freshman in 2009 before redshirting last season. At safety, sophomore Isaiah Johnson and senior Rashaad Reid have the edge as starters. Sophomores Fred Holton and Lance Richardson will push them for starting roles.

2011 PREVIEW

A-Back -- Possibly the deepest position on the team, no less than six players should contribute this fall. The leader of the group is senior Roddy Jones, who has rushed for nearly 1,400 career yards and averages a remarkable 7.5 yards per carry. Jones is an excellent blocker on the perimeter, a solid receiver who knows the offense inside and out, and he’ll play this fall as a graduate student. Junior Orwin Smith, who rushed for 516 yards and averaged more than nine yards per carry last season, is one of Tech’s big-play threats and one of the Jackets’ better receivers. Senior Embry Peeples, arguably the fastest player on the team, has played in 34 career games. Sophomore B.J. Bostic and senior Marcus Wright, who missed most of last season with an injury, are back. Redshirt freshmen Deon Hill and Tony Zenon will compete for playing time as well.  Wide Receiver -- Junior Stephen Hill and senior Tyler Melton give the Yellow Jackets a pair of experienced receivers. Hill has the size (6-5, 200) and the speed to give Tech a big-play threat in the passing game. He caught just 15 passes last season, but three of those went for touchdowns and Hill averaged nearly 20 yards per reception. Melton, with 33 career games played and 22 games started, enters his fourth season in the offense. Depth is the issue at receiver, where juniors Daniel McKayhan and Jon Lockhart, and sophomore Jeremy Moore, have a combined two career receptions. Moore missed all of the 2010 season with a knee injury. Jeff Greene is one of three true freshmen who will get a look in August. Offensive Line -- The key to Tech’s fortunes on offense belongs to the line. Short on depth and beset by injuries, the O-line took its lumps in the spring. Three starters are back, paced by a pair of all-star candidates at guard. Junior Omoregie Uzzi was a second team All-ACC selection in 2010, while sophomore Will Jackson earned Freshman All-American honors. The back-ups at guard have potential but lack experience. Trey Braun is a promising true freshman who enrolled in January and participated in spring practice. Sophomore J.C. Lanier moved from defensive line to offensive line in the spring. At tackle, junior Phil Smith is a returning starter. Sophomores Tyler Kidney and Ray Beno gained experience last season in a reserve role. Redshirt freshman Catlin Alford should be a solid contributor for the next four seasons. Tech enters a season without Sean Bedford at center for the first time since 2008, but the position should be in good hands. Sophomore Jay Finch saw significant action in 2010, albeit at the guard position. Junior Nick McCrae was a top reserve last season. Redshirt freshman Morgan Bailey, who has battled nagging injuries, could also be a contributor on the line.

14 2011 GEORGIA TECH INFORMATION GUIDE

GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011 Johnson, who started three games last season as a true freshman, has star potential. He had 46 tackles, 3.0 tackles for loss, recovered two fumbles, caused a fumble and had an interception as a rookie. Reid has played in 40 career games with 15 starts, eight of which came in 2008 as a true freshman. He has three career interceptions and is capable of playing any position in the secondary. Holton played in all 13 games last season as a true freshman with most of his action coming on special teams. Richardson, who played in three games in 2010, is the least experienced of the bunch.

Kicking Game Finding a replacement for kicker Scott Blair and improving all special teams, in particular the return game, is a priority for the Yellow Jackets in August. The Yellow Jackets ranked 97th nationally last season in both kickoff returns and punt returns. They also ranked 98th in punt return yardage allowed. Kicker -- Blair scored 239 career points, the fifthmost in school history. He made 15-of-17 field goal attempts last season for the highest single-season percentage in Georgia Tech history. Blair handled field goals, PATs, kickoffs, and at times did the punting. Sophomore Justin Moore enters the fall as the leader in the clubhouse. A scholarship player, Moore played in the first two games of the 2010 season, handling kickoff duties in Game 2 at Kansas, but did not see the field from that point on. Moore will receive competition from a number of players, including sophomore David Scully, who is listed second on the depth chart. Juniors Chris Tanner and Andy Elakman, and senior Ty Rawlings are also in the mix. Senior punter Chandler Anderson wants to throw his name in the hat as well. Punter -- Anderson started the entire 2009 season and was the primary punter through September of last year before relinquishing duties to Sean Poole. Poole averaged 39.3 yards per attempt before suffering a knee injury in mid-November. He returned late

in the spring and should be 100 percent this fall. Anderson, who also plays the important role of holder on all kicks, has the most experience. He has accumulated more than 2,000 punting yards with eight boots of 50 yards or longer. Redshirt freshman Michael McDonald will also challenge. Snapper -- Junior Tyler Morgan enters his third season as Tech’s primary snapper on punt attempts and his first on short snaps for PATs and field goals. Morgan, wanting to play a more active role, is also practicing at wide receiver. Morgan could get competition from true freshman Sean Tobin, who comes to Tech on scholarship.

 Jason Peters

Notes  Of Tech’s 11 returning starters, just four are seniors, including one -- A-back Roddy Jones -- on offense.  The entire Tech coaching staff returns from a year ago. Charles Kelly, the secondary coach who enters his sixth season, has been at Tech the longest.

HEAD COACH  4th Season at Georgia Tech  Western Carolina (1979)

PAUL JOHNSON Paul Johnson, a two-time Atlantic Coast Conference Coach of the Year and the mastermind behind Georgia Tech’s high-production offense, begins his fourth season as head coach of the Yellow Jackets. Under Johnson, Georgia Tech was one of college football’s biggest surprise stories in 2008 and won the ACC championship in 2009. The ACC Coach of the Year in 2008 and 2009, Johnson’s teams have appeared in a bowl game each of the last three seasons. In three seasons on the Flats, Johnson has compiled a record of 25-14, including a 16-8 mark in ACC play. No coach in Tech history won more games than Johnson in their first three seasons. Over the last three seasons combined, only Virginia Tech has won more ACC games than Johnson’s Jackets. In 14 seasons overall as a head coach, Johnson owns a career record of 132-53. His career winning percentage (.714) ranks in the top 10 among active BCS head coaches. Johnson enjoyed success as the head coach at Georgia Southern (1997-2001) and Navy (2002-2007) before being named Georgia Tech’s 12th head coach on Dec. 12, 2007. What Johnson has accomplished at Georgia Tech has been remarkable: • In his first two seasons at Tech, Johnson was named the ACC Coach of the Year. He is the first coach to win the award in his first two years in the league. • In 2008, he was named National Coach of the Year by CBS Sports. • In 2009, the Yellow Jackets won the ACC title outright for the first time since 1990, defeating Clemson in the ACC Championship Game. • Tech played in a BCS bowl game for the first time in 2009. • Under Johnson, Tech has averaged nearly nine wins per season. • In each of his three seasons, Tech has ranked in the top five nationally in rushing offense. Last season, the Yellow Jackets led the nation in rushing (323.3 ypg). • In 21 of Johnson’s 40 games at Georgia Tech, the Yellow Jackets have produced more than 400 yards of total offense. Tech has scored at least one rushing touchdown in 35 of 40 games under Johnson. • Over the last three seasons, Tech has produced four 1,000-yard rushers -Jonathan Dwyer in 2008, Dwyer and Joshua Nesbitt in 2009, and Anthony Allen in 2010. • Over the last three years combined, the Yellow Jackets have produced 12 first team All-ACC selections.

• Tech has produced two first team All-Americans under Johnson -- Michael Johnson in 2008 and Derrick Morgan in 2009. • Since Johnson’s arrival, a Tech player has been named ACC Offensive Player of the Year (Dwyer in 2008) and ACC Defensive Player of the Year (Morgan in 2009). • Johnson is 11-2 at Tech in games decided by five points or less. • Johnson is 6-4 at Tech against nationally-ranked opponents. • Johnson is 10-7 at Tech in road games. • Tech is 23-5 under Johnson when scoring at least 20 points, 16-1 when scoring more than 30 points. • In 2009, Tech won in Tallahassee (Fla.) for the first time in school history, beat a top-five ranked team at home (Virginia Tech) for the first time since 1962 and won on the road in Charlottesville (Va.) for the first time since 1990. • Also in 2009, Tech earned its highest national ranking (7th) since 1999. • In 2008, the Jackets broke a seven-year losing skid to rival Georgia, beating the 13th-ranked Bulldogs, 45-42, in Athens (Ga.). • Under Johnson, Georgia Tech’s Academic Progress Report (APR) scores have risen each of the last three years. In 2010, Georgia Tech earned a bowl bid for the 14th consecutive season, tying for the fourth-longest current streak in college football. The Yellow Jackets, who lost four juniors to the 2010 NFL Draft and played the final four games without injured quarterback Joshua Nesbitt, finished 4-4 in the ACC and led the nation in rushing offense for the first time in school history. Two Yellow Jackets -- senior center Sean Bedford and senior running back Anthony Allen -- were named first team All-ACC in 2010. The 2009 season was one of the most memorable in Yellow Jacket history despite fielding one of the youngest rosters in college football (just six scholarship seniors).

Johnson’s Record

numbers, leading the NCAA in rushing three straight years from 2005 to 2007, mostly against ACC and other BCS-level competition. Johnson quieted those critics almost as soon as the 2008 season kicked off and certainly after Tech closed the regular season by combining for 86 points and 881 rushing yards in games against nationally-ranked Miami and Georgia. The Yellow Jackets, with freshmen and sophomores manning every skill position and behind a patch-work offensive line, averaged 273.2 rushing yards per game, ranking fourth nationally and first in the ACC. Georgia Tech also led the ACC in total offense (372.5 ypg). Johnson came to Georgia Tech after previously serving six seasons as head coach of the U.S. Naval Academy, where he led the Midshipmen to a level of success they had not seen in decades. Johnson’s first head coaching job came at Georgia Southern, where in five seasons he led the Eagles to two I-AA national championships. "Paul Johnson is the best fit, the best choice for the Georgia Tech head coaching position," Georgia Tech athletic director Dan Radakovich said upon Johnson’s hiring. "He will educate young men, represent Georgia Tech at the highest level, he will win football games and play for championships. "He accomplished feats at a Service Academy that many thought were not possible. He looks at his talent and maximizes it. Whether as an assistant coach at Hawai'i, or as the head coach at Georgia Southern or Navy, he has figured out how to be successful." Prior to Johnson’s arrival in Atlanta, he earned unprecedented success at Navy. Johnson coached six years at Navy, where in 2007 the Midshipmen won a fifth straight Commander-InChief's Trophy, earned a postseason bowl bid for the fifth consecutive year and beat Notre Dame for the first time since 1963. Johnson was a finalist for the 2007 Liberty Mutual National Coach of the Year. In six seasons at Navy, Johnson compiled a record of 45-29. Johnson took over a Navy football program that was coming off the worst two-year span in its 123-year history (1-20) and had recorded just two winning seasons in the last 20 years. After a 2-10 mark in Johnson's first year, the Midshipmen achieved what many thought was no longer possible at an Academy. Johnson brought the Midshipmen back into the national spot-

After a mid-September loss at nationally-ranked Miami when the Yellow Jackets played their third game in a 12-day span, Tech reeled off eight consecutive victories including a 5-0 record in October when it played four road games. A convincing 49-10 win at Duke on Nov. 14 clinched the ACC Coastal Division crown, then Tech won the league title by defeating Clemson for a second time, this time in the ACC Championship Game in Tampa, Fla. Tech, which reached a national ranking as high as seventh, played in the FedEx Orange Bowl, its first appearance in a major bowl game since 1962. Along the way, the Yellow Jackets rolled up mind-boggling numbers on offense, ranking second nationally in rushing offense (295.4 ypg) and third in time of possession (33:49). Prior to the start of the 2008 season, Sports Illustrated projected Georgia Tech to finish 3-9 and the ACC media picked the Yellow Jackets to finish fourth in the Coastal Division. However, Johnson directed Tech to a 9-4 record, a share of the Coastal Division title and a Chick-fil-A Bowl berth. Johnson’s first Yellow Jacket team beat three nationally-ranked opponents – Florida State, Miami and Georgia – over the final four games of the regular season. The win over Georgia snapped a seven-game losing streak to Tech’s in-state rival. Johnson’s first season at Georgia Tech was remarkable for a number of reasons. Not only did he and his staff install completely new offensive and defensive schemes, but Johnson inherited one of the nation’s youngest rosters, which included 76 freshmen and sophomores. The last one-third of the season, 16 of Tech’s 22 starters were freshmen or sophomores. He also took over a program low in scholarship numbers, well below the maximum of 85, the lingering effects of distant NCAA penalties. The 2008 team also suffered more than its share of injuries. Twelve opening-day starters combined to miss 31 games because of injuries. In a September road game at defending ACC champion Virginia Tech, the Jackets started a walk-on freshman at wide receiver. A few weeks later, Tech started its third-string quarterback as the result of injuries to starter Joshua Nesbitt and back-up Jaybo Shaw. Almost as soon as Johnson was hired, the pundits questioned if Johnson’s option-based spread offense would work on the BCS level. Those questions came even though Navy racked up mind-numbing offensive

What They’re Saying "I think his teams in the future will compete for championships because it's the way he programs a team. I don't believe his system is just the triple option. I believe his system builds all the way from the offseason, how he... makes men out of boys. It's a mentality, and I think it's showing up in football games." -- Darryl Richard, New England Patriots "He's a very intelligent person. He knows the offense is sound. He knows it's not a gimmick offense. He knows it's based on angles and numbers. He's added wrinkles to it as people have come up with ways to stop it. He has an answer for everything when it comes to his offense." -- Navy head coach Ken Niumatalolo "I think it carries over to us a lot because we see it from him every day. When we see how competitive he is, we have no choice but to go out and play well for him." -- Former Tech quarterback Joshua Nesbitt “He is the most underrated coach in the country." -- Paul Meyerberg, New York Times

light with a 43-19 (.694) record over his last four-plus years. Johnson dominated the other two Service Academies like no other coach in the school's annals, posting an 11-1 (.917) overall record, including a perfect 6-0 mark against rival Army. His 2007 senior class was the first in school history to post a perfect 8-0 mark against Army and Air Force. Johnson's Navy teams improved as each season progressed. Over his last five years, Navy posted a 132 (.867) record over the final three games of the season and outscored the opposition 611-335 in those contests. In games in which Johnson had more than a week to prepare for an opponent, the Midshipmen went 15-6 (.714) over his last four years combined. The Midshipmen led the nation in rushing in 2007 for an unprecedented third consecutive year, producing more than 350 yards per game. Under Johnson, Navy never finished lower than third nationally in rushing offense. Navy ranked among the nation's highest-scoring teams in 2007, averaging 39.92 points per outing. The 2007 Mids also ranked in the top 10 nationally in kickoff returns and in fewest sacks allowed. Johnson's teams have been successful off the field as well. Navy ranked No. 1 in the country in graduation rates during Johnson’s tenure. In 2004, Johnson was named Bobby Dodd National Coach of the Year after leading Navy to a 10-2 record, tying the school record for wins set in 1905, and won a bowl game (34-19 victory vs. New Mexico in the Emerald Bowl) for just the fifth time in the history of the program. In 2003, Johnson led Navy to an 8-5 record and brought the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy back to Annapolis for the first time since 1981, propelling Navy to a bowl game for the first time since 1996. The Mids became just the sixth team in NCAA history to go from a winless season to a bowl game in two years or less. Before arriving at Annapolis, Johnson served as head coach at Georgia Southern from 1997 to 2001. At Georgia Southern, Johnson posted a 62-10 (.861) record, won two straight I-AA National Championships (1999 and 2000), five consecutive Southern Conference Championships and was named the Division I-AA National Coach of the Year four straight years (19972000). After Johnson took over as head coach at Georgia Southern in 1997, he returned the Eagle program to national prominence statistically and in the won-lost ledger. In addition to Georgia Southern's 62-10 mark,

the Eagles scored 2,855 points (39.7 points per game), picked up 25,941 rushing yards (360.3 yards per game), 7,816 passing yards (108.6 yards per game) and 33,757 total yards (468.8 yards per game). GSU scored 380 touchdowns in the Johnson Era, an average of 5.3 per game. The Eagles' scoring margin under Johnson was +21.5 (39.7-18.5). Johnson picked up a milestone victory in the 2000 IAA National Championship Game against Montana. Not only did the 27-25 victory give Georgia Southern its second straight national title, but it was also Johnson's 50th career win in four seasons. Only three other coaches in the history of Division I football won 50 or more games in four seasons -- Walter Camp (18881891, 54-2 at Yale), George Woodruff (1892-1895, 534 at Penn) and Bob Pruett (1996-99, 50-4 at Marshall). Johnson took over a Georgia Southern program in 1997 that was 4-7 the previous year and orchestrated a turnaround that ranked among the NCAA's best, directing the Eagles to a 10-3 record. He was named Southern Conference Coach of the Year by the media and Region II Coach of the Year by the American Foot-


GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011 ball Coaches Association. In 1998, Johnson guided the Eagles to a perfect 11-0 regular season record and the school's sixth NCAA Division I-AA National Championship Game appearance before finishing with a 14-1 mark. He directed a high-powered offensive unit that tied or broke 100 records during the campaign, again earned the league's top coaching honor and received The Sports Network's Eddie Robinson Award -- symbolic of the division's national Coach of the Year selection. In 1999, Johnson brought Georgia Southern its fifth national title, and the Eagles finished 13-2 while breaking 197 records. For his efforts, Johnson was honored as the 1999 AFCA and Chevrolet I-AA National Coach of the Year. Johnson duplicated the feat in the 2000 season as the Eagles repeated as national champions, again finishing 13-2, and Johnson captured the AFCA I-AA Coach of the Year award once more. In five seasons at Georgia Southern, Johnson's squads broke or tied 379 individual and team school, conference, playoff or stadium records, ranked in the top 10 in 21 statistical categories and produced 31 All-Americans. The Eagles won an NCAA I-AA-record 39 consecutive games at home. Meanwhile, their 52 wins over those four seasons were the most in all of Division I. Johnson was previously Navy's offensive coordinator in 1995 and 1996, and his spread offense made an immediate impact, breaking five school records during the Mids' five-win season in 1995. Navy posted a 9-3 record the next season in 1996, including a 42-38 victory over California in the Aloha Bowl. It was Navy's first winning season since 1982 and one of only two winning seasons the Mids had during a 19-year span. Prior to joining

the Navy staff, Johnson spent eight seasons as the offensive coordinator at the University of Hawai'i (1987-94). He helped guide the Rainbows to their first Western Athletic Conference title and their first bowl appearance, coordinating an explosive offense that broke or equaled more than 160 school records. While at Hawai'i, Johnson developed a successful offensive unit which earned top-20 I-A statistical rankings in scoring offense, total offense and rushing offense during six of his eight seasons. He earned top offensive coach honors in the WAC and was named one of the top 10 assistant coaches in the country by The Sporting News. After first arriving at Georgia Southern in 1983 as defensive line coach, Johnson was promoted to offensive coordinator in 1985. Under his tutelage, record-setting quarterback Tracy Ham and the Eagle offense re-wrote the school record book while averaging 435 total yards and 36 points per contest. Georgia Southern rolled to a combined 26-4 record and captured a pair of I-AA titles in 1985-86. Johnson's coaching career began when he was offensive coordinator and line coach at his alma mater, Avery County (N.C.) High School, in 1979-80. He accepted the offensive coordinator's position at Lees-McRae Junior College in 1981, leading his offensive unit to a sixth-place national standing among NJCAA total offense leaders. Johnson, a native of Newland, N.C., earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Western Carolina in 1979 and a Master's degree in health and physical education from Appalachian State in 1982. He and wife, Susan, are the parents of a daughter, Kaitlyn.

Paul Johnson and former Yellow Jacket basketball standout Jon Barry combined to shoot an 11-under-par 61 on May 3rd to win the 2011 Chick-fil-A Bowl Challenge charity golf tournament at Reynolds Plantation. Georgia Tech held off a field of 11 other university teams of head coaches and celebrity alumni to take the $120,000 first-place prize in scholarship winnings. The combined scholarship purse amounted to $415,000. After finishing second in last year's event, Team Georgia Tech led throughout the tournament and capped the round when Johnson holed a 17-foot downhill putt on 18 to finish at -11. "Coach Johnson was absolutely awesome on the greens today. He was looking like Ben Crenshaw," Barry said.

Quarterbacks/B-Backs  4th Season at Georgia Tech  Georgia (1993)

BRIAN BOHANNON Brian Bohannon, coach of the quarterbacks and B-backs, enters his fourth season at Georgia Tech and his 15th year working with Yellow Jacket head coach Paul Johnson. In each of Bohannon’s first two seasons on the Flats, the Yellow Jackets led the ACC in total offense while ranking in the top five nationally in rushing offense. Last season, Tech led the nation in rushing offense. Since Bohannon’s arrival at Georgia Tech, four players have rushed for more than 1,000 yards -- B-back Jonathan Dwyer in 2008, Dwyer and quarterback Joshua Nesbitt in 2009, and B-back Anthony Allen in 2010. Dwyer was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2008 and 2009. Nesbitt was the first team AllACC QB in 2009, and Allen was first-team allconference in 2010. Bohannon helped Nesbitt develop from a running specialist out of the shotgun into one of the nation’s premier dual threat quarterbacks. Nesbitt completed his career in 2010 as the most prolific rushing quarterback in ACC history. He also owns the ACC record for career rushing touchdowns by a QB. Nesbitt likely would have become just the eighth player in NCAA history to rush and pass for 3,000 career yards if not for an injury that cost him the final four games of the 2010 season. Before arriving at Georgia Tech, Bohannon spent six years as wide receivers coach at Navy. Bohannon was part of a staff that returned the Midshipmen to the national spotlight. Navy won 35 games over four years, earning a school-record four consecutive postseason bowl berths and a school-best four straight Commander-In-Chief’s Trophies. Under Bohannon, Navy’s receiving corps emerged as outstanding receivers as well as skilled blockers. In 2007, Navy’s offense put up remarkable numbers. The Midshipmen ranked first nationally in rushing (348.8 ypg), 10th in scoring (39.3 ppg), 22nd in total offense (444.1 ypg) and ninth in sacks allowed (1.08 pg). In 2005, Bohannon helped the Mids rushing attack average a nation's best 318.7 yards per contest as Navy went to a bowl game for a third straight year, won a second consecutive bowl game and won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy for a third-straight year. In 2004, Bohannon's efforts helped the wide receiver corps to perform well enough for the Midshipmen to finish 45th in the country in total offense (388.8 yards per game), third in rushing offense (289.5), win a school-record-tying 10 games (the most wins since 1905), win the Emerald Bowl and claim the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy. In 2003, he helped the Mids lead the nation in rushing (323.2 yards per contest) and set school records for rushing yards per game, total rushing yards (4,202), rushing yards per attempt (5.5), rushing touchdowns (44), total offense (5,506), total offense per game (423.5) and yards per play (6.0). In 2002, Navy had the third-best rushing average in the country (270.75) and scored 30 or more points on four occasions. Bohannon coached the wide receivers for three seasons (1997-99) at Georgia Southern before taking over the defensive backs his last two years (2000-01). During his initial season as defensive backs coach, the secondary played a key role in Georgia Southern's efforts, ranking 18th nationally in pass defense (156.1 yards per game) and 28th in interceptions (16). The Eagles' secondary took another leap forward in 2001, finishing second nationally in pass defense (125.6 yards per game), fourth in scoring defense (12.0 points per game) and sixth in total defense (261.4 yards per game). A four-year letterwinner and standout as a wide receiver at Georgia, Bohannon started his coaching career at West Georgia before earning his first full-time position at Gardner-Webb (N.C.) as wide receivers coach in 1996. A native of Griffin, Ga., he earned his bachelor's degree in general business from Georgia in 1993 and a master's in business education from West Georgia in 1996. He is married to the former Melanie Cobb and they have three children, sons Blake Patrick and Braden Thomas, and daughter Brooke Anna.

Al Groh, who enjoyed success as a head coach on both the collegiate and NFL levels for many years, embarks on his second season at Georgia Tech as the Yellow Jackets’ defensive coordinator. In his first season at Georgia Tech in 2010, Groh overhauled the Yellow Jacket defense, installing the 3-4 scheme. Tech made significant improvement in its pass defense from the previous season and the defense played major roles in narrow road victories at North Carolina and Wake Forest. Groh’s first defensive unit at Tech was a youthful bunch, illustrated by four true freshmen who saw significant action. Two members of the defense -- senior cornerback Mario Butler and junior safety Jerrard Tarrant -- were invited to the NFL Combine. Groh came to the Flats after serving nine seasons as head coach at Virginia, where he not only made the Cavaliers competitive on the national stage, but helped completely change the environment and culture surrounding the football program in Charlottesville. Groh earned coach of the year honors in three of his nine years at Virginia. He was named the ACC Coach of the Year in 2002 and 2007 and the American Football Coaches Association's Regional Coach of the Year in 2004. After taking over the Virginia program in 2001, the Cavaliers won 59 games and appeared in five bowl games. Groh guided the 2007 squad to a 9-4 record and a berth in the Konica Minolta Gator Bowl while earning ACC Coach of the Year laurels for the second time in his career. In 2008 the list of players to earn All-ACC honors under Groh grew to 53, including first-team selections by tackle Eugene Monroe and tight end John Phillips. Monroe became the second Cavalier during Groh's tenure to receive the Jacobs Blocking Trophy as the ACC's top lineman, joining two-time winner Elton Brown. He and Clint Sintim were named to various All-America teams, becoming the 10th and 11th Cavaliers to earn that distinction under Groh. The 2007 season marked the fifth time during his first seven years on Grounds that Groh led UVa to a bowl game. During that span his teams came away victorious three times, including a dramatic 34-31 win against Minnesota in the Gaylord Hotels Music City Bowl in 2005. In 2007 Chris Long became the program's third unanimous All-American, the Ted Hendricks Award winner, the ACC Defensive Player of the Year and later went on to be taken second overall in the NFL Draft, joining offensive guard Branden Albert as a first-round pick. When he was named the program's head coach on Dec. 30, 2000, Groh traded in a high-profile NFL head-coaching job with the New York Jets for an opportunity to return to Virginia. He succeeded George Welsh, who retired after 19 seasons at the helm of the Cavaliers, as the winningest coach in ACC and school history. In 2006 the youthful Cavaliers finished 5-7 overall with impressive wins over NC State and Miami. Four Cavaliers earned All-ACC accolades, including second-team

Al Groh, cont’d honorees CB Marcus Hamilton and DE Chris Long. Freshmen DE Jeffrey Fitzgerald, OT Will Barker, and QB Jameel Sewell, who filled starting roles for the 'Hoos, were named to The Sporting News' Freshman All-American team. Fitzgerald was also named to the Rivals.com first-team Freshman All-America squad. Virginia finished the 2005 regular season at 6-5, including upsets of No.4 Florida State and No. 24 Georgia Tech. That season also marked just the second time in the program's history that UVa received a bowl invitation in four consecutive seasons. Virginia concluded the 2004 season at 8-4 (5-3 ACC) and made its third consecutive bowl appearance. The Cavaliers led the ACC in rushing offense, total offense, first downs and third-down conversions, and set a school record with 34 rushing touchdowns. Groh was honored by his peers as the 2004 AFCA Regional Coach of the Year. In 2003, the Cavaliers were nationally ranked all season and finished 23rd in the final Associated Press poll. Virginia finished 8-5 (4-4 ACC) and celebrated a return trip to the Continental Tire Bowl with a 23-16 win over Pittsburgh. With the victory, Virginia claimed consecutive bowl championships for just the second time in school history. During his second season at the helm in 2002, Groh led the Cavaliers to a 9-5 overall record (6-2 ACC, tied for second), including a 48-22 triumph over No. 15 West Virginia in the Continental Tire Bowl. With the bowl victory, Virginia clinched its first season of nine-or-more wins since 1998 and the sixth in school history. UVa was ranked 22nd in the final Associated Press poll, the team's highest final ranking since 1998. Virginia was picked to finish eighth in the conference in the 2002 preseason. Named the 2002 ACC Coach of Year, Groh became only the second coach in UVa history to lead the Cavaliers to a bowl game. At the same time, approximately two thirds of Virginia's 2002 roster was comprised of sophomores and either true or redshirt freshmen. A total of 14 true freshmen and eight redshirt freshmen saw action for the 2002 Cavaliers, with as many as 10 freshmen starting at times during the season. In addition to its bowl victory over' West Virginia, Virginia claimed three other wins over ranked opponents in 2002. Among them were back-to-back victories over No. 22 NC State (14-9) and No. 18 Maryland (48-13) in November. The Cavaliers also defeated No. 22 South Carolina 34-21 earlier in the season. Following his first season at Virginia, Groh was chosen defensive head coach of the Gray team in the 64th Annual Blue-Gray All-Star Football Classic, held Dec. 25, 2001, in Montgomery, Ala. He was named head coach of the New York Jets before the start of the 2000 season and led that franchise to a 9-7 record in his one year at the helm. During the season, the Jets staged the "Monday Night Miracle" by overcoming a 30-7 fourth-quarter deficit to beat Miami 40-37 in overtime. Groh previously coached in two Super Bowls as an assistant under Bill Parcells, winning an NFL championship ring with the 1990 New York Giants in Super Bowl XXV and later going to Super Bowl XXXI with the 1996 New England Patriots. In addition to serving one season as the Jets' head coach, Groh coached the linebackers for the Jets under Parcells for three years, from 1997-99. Groh moved with Parcells when Parcells resigned as head coach of the New England Patriots to take over as the Jets' head coach in 1997. During Groh's tenure at New England, where he served as defensive coordinator, the Patriots' defense improved yearly in nearly every category and ranked among the league's best in takeaways, yards allowed and points allowed. The Patriots finished with an 11-5 record in 1996, winning the AFC championship and playing the Green Bay Packers in Super Bowl XXXI. Chris Slade, a former All-America linebacker at Virginia, was among the many defensive standouts whom Groh coached at New England. Groh's other NFL coaching stops include one season as linebackers coach on Bill Belichick's staff with the Cleveland Browns (1992) and one season with the Atlanta Falcons (1987) as special teams and tight ends coach for Marion Campbell. He began his coaching career as an assistant football coach at Charlottesville's Albemarle High School in 1967. The following year, he moved to Tom Cahill's staff at Army where he was the defensive coach for the plebe squad and worked with Parcells for the first time in his career. Groh returned to UVa in 1970 to serve as the head coach of the freshman team and as the defensive line coach through the 1972 season. From 1973-77, Groh served as an assistant at North Carolina where he coached Lawrence Taylor, whom he later coached with the Giants. He joined Parcells at Air Force in 1978 as defensive coordinator before moving to Texas Tech in 1980 and becoming head coach at Wake Forest in 1981. While at Wake Forest, Groh guided the program to only its second winning season in 13 years with a 6-5 record in 1984. During his tenure, the school produced one first-team All-American, 12 first-team All-ACC selections, 15 All-ACC academic selections, one ACC Rookie of the Year and one Jacobs Blocking Trophy recipient. Groh also helped develop 14 players who would later go on to play in the NFL, the most concentrated group of pro players produced in Demon Deacon history to that point. Between his NFL coaching jobs with the Falcons and Giants, Groh served as offensive coordinator at South Carolina in 1988. A legendary example of Groh's ability to motivate and inspire his players occurred during the 1994 season at New England, where the Patriots had gotten off to a 3-6

start. Groh decided he would grab an old shovel from his garage and bring it to work the next day. He is known to have told the players: “See this shovel men? "This is how we're going to get out of this thing. Everyone take a shovel, and you dig one shovelful at a time:' The Patriots didn't lose another game that regular season, reaching the playoffs for the first time under Parcells. Groh brought his shovel to every game, keeping it on the sidelines as a reminder of what it took to overcome adversity. A 1967 graduate of UVa's McIntire School of Commerce, Groh was a member of the varsity football team from 1963-65, playing under Bill Elias and George Blackburn. He lettered at defensive end in 1965.He also lettered as a defenseman on the Cavalier lacrosse team. Groh was born in New York City and grew up on Long Island. He attended Chaminade High School in Mineola, N.Y., where he was a standout athlete and earned AllMetropolitan honors in football. His oldest son Mike was the starting quarterback at Virginia in 1994 and 1995. Groh and his wife, Anne, are the parents of two sons, Mike and Matthew, and a daughter, Ashley Anne. Matthew played quarterback at Princeton and is a graduate of Virginia's School of Law. Mike was on Nick Saban's staff at Alabama in 2009 when the Crimson Tide won the national championship. He served as the quarterbacks coach at Louisville in 2010 and he currently serves as wide receivers coach at Alabama. Mike played quarterback at Virginia and later served as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator for the Cavaliers. The Grohs have two grandsons -- Cameron and Conner.

Charles Kelly begins his sixth season at Georgia Tech, his fourth season under head coach Paul Johnson and his second season as coach of the secondary. Kelly took over responsibility for the secondary in 2010 after coaching the cornerbacks in 2008 and 2009. Over the last three seasons, Georgia Tech has recorded 38 interceptions. In 2008, the Yellow Jackets recorded 18 INTs, including three by true freshman cornerback Rashaad Reid, who was a second team Freshmen AllAmerican. In 2008, Tech ranked in the top 30 nationally in total defense and scoring defense. In 2009, Kelly helped develop a number of cornerbacks including Mario Butler, a 14-game starter, and Jerrard Tarrant, who picked off two passes, including one for a touchdown in the FedEx Orange Bowl. Tarrant was responsible for all four of Tech’s non-offensive touchdowns in 2009. Last season Butler and Tarrant both returned interceptions for touchdowns. Butler and Tarrant were invited to the NFL Combine. Kelly, a former defensive coordinator at three different schools, served as the Yellow Jackets’ special teams coordinator in 2006 and 2007, He was instrumental in making Georgia Tech into one of the nation’s best special teams units in 2007. That group went from 119th in the nation in kick return defense in 2006 to second in 2007. Under Kelly’s guidance, punter Durant Brooks and place-kicker Travis Bell each earned first team All-ACC accolades. Brooks earned the prestigious Ray Guy Award in 2007 and recorded the highest career punting average in ACC history. In Kelly’s first year in 2006, Brooks earned second-team All-America and first-team All-ACC honors. With the combination of Brooks and outstanding coverage, Tech ranked second in the nation in net punting. Brooks averaged better than 45 yards per punt, and almost half of his kicks pinned the opponent inside the 20-yard line. Kelly spent the previous four seasons at Nicholls State, an NCAA Division I-AA program that captured the Southland Conference title in 2005. Under Kelly, who served as defensive backs coach during his first two seasons at Nicholls, the Colonels finished as the top-ranked defense in the Southland Conference in 2005 and 17th in NCAA Division I-AA.

Defensive Line/Recruiting Coordinator  2nd Season at Georgia Tech  Austin Peay State (1981)

ANDY McCOLLUM Andy McCollum, a veteran coach with nearly 30 years of college coaching experience and a native of Marietta (Ga.), enters his second season as coach of the defensive line and recruiting coordinator. McCollum, one of three former head coaches on the Yellow Jacket staff, supervises Tech’s recruiting efforts. In his first season at Georgia Tech, McCollum worked closely with defensive coordinator Al Groh to install the 3-4 defense. Faced with the task of players learning a completely new system, McCollum helped mold the defensive line into a solid front. Ends Izaan Cross and Jason Peters both enjoyed highly productive 2010 seasons and enter 2011 as two of the better ends in the ACC. McCollum came to the Flats after serving three seasons (2007-09) as linebackers coach at NC State, where he was a part of Wolfpack head coach Tom O’Brien’s initial coaching staff. NC State participated in the 2008 Papajohns.com Bowl. Prior to his tenure at NC State, McCollum spent one season in the NFL as an advance scout for the Tennessee Titans in 2006. McCollum served as head coach at Middle Tennessee State for seven seasons (1999-2005), helping the Blue Raider program make the transition from a struggling I-AA squad to a successful I-A program that competed against BCS opponents 24 times during his tenure. MTSU, which appears on the Tech schedule this fall, set 84 school records with McCollum at the helm. In 2000, McCollum led the Blue Raiders to a 6-5 record, their first winning record as a I-A program, including back-to-back wins over Connecticut and South Florida by a combined score of 111-19. His 2001 MTSU squad finished 8-3, won the Sun Belt Conference championship, and ranked fifth nationally in offense. In 2005, the Blue Raider defense ranked ninth nationally. In 2002, 2004 and 2005 he brought in what were considered the top recruiting classes in the Sun Belt Conference. McCollum was named Coach of the Year by the Tennessee Sports Writers Association in 2000 and 2001. From 1994 to 1998, McCollum worked at Baylor in a variety of roles. In 1995 and 1996 he served as associate head coach, defensive coordinator and coach of the special teams. In ’94, the Bears participated in the Alamo Bowl. In 1995, the Bear defense ranked fifth nationally in total defense, fifth in pass defense and ninth in scoring defense. From 1989 to 1992, McCollum worked as an assistant coach at UTEP. He coached the Miners’ wide receivers and special teams in 1989 before moving over to defense to coach the linebackers and special teams from 1990-93. From 1981 to 1988, McCollum was an assistant coach at Middle Tennessee State. In 1984 and 1985 the Blue Raiders advanced to the Division I-AA playoffs.

Wide Receivers  4th Season at Georgia Tech  Hawai’i (1982)

AL “BUZZ” PRESTON Al “Buzz” Preston, who has enjoyed success from Honolulu to South Bend, begins his fourth season in Atlanta as Georgia Tech’s wide receivers coach. Over the last three seasons, Preston has helped develop a strong corps of receivers, including Demaryius Thomas, a 2009 NFL first-round draft choice by the Denver Broncos. Thomas, who made remarkable strides in his blocking skills under Preston, left the Flats as one of the most prolific receivers in Georgia Tech history. In just three seasons Thomas caught 120 passes for 2,339 yards (fourth-most in Tech history) while averaging 19.5 yards per reception. Thomas had 15 career touchdown receptions and caught at least one pass in 29 consecutive games. Since Preston’s arrival, Tech has led the ACC in total offense two times (2008 and 2009). Last year Preston worked with a young group of receivers, including sophomore Stephen Hill, who has emerged as a big-play candidate. In 2010, Hill averaged nearly 20 yards per reception and caught three touchdown passes. Preston came to Tech after serving one season at New Mexico, where he helped lead the Lobos to their first bowl victory in more than 45 years. As New Mexico’s running backs coach in 2007, Preston coached Lobo junior running back Rodney Ferguson, who earned first team All-Mountain West Conference honors for the second straight year after rushing for 1,177 yards and 13 touchdowns. Preston has 31 seasons of collegiate coaching experience, including two stints at Stanford (1999-2001, 2006). During his first three-year run with the Cardinal, Preston was part of two bowl teams that were also two of the best squads in Stanford history. He helped coach the Cardinal to the 1999 Pac-10 title on its way to the 2000 Rose Bowl. In 2001, Stanford put together a 9-3 record and was ranked among the top 10 teams in the nation during the year before playing in the Seattle Bowl against Georgia Tech. Following his three seasons at Stanford, Preston went with coach Tyrone Willingham to Notre Dame for three more seasons (2002-04) to coach the running backs and serve as special teams coordinator. He helped lead the Irish to two bowl games with appearances in the Gator Bowl in 2002 and the Insight Bowl following the 2003 regular season.

In 2002, Irish running back Ryan Grant eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark as well. Before coming to Stanford for the first time, Preston was the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator/QB coach at UNLV in 1998. Prior to that, he coached running backs at Washington State from 1994-97. During his four-year term at Washington State, Preston was part of a coaching staff that guided the Cougars to the Pac-10 Conference championship in 1997 and its first Rose Bowl appearance in 67 years. The Cougar offense broke the Pac-10 record for most total yards in a single season. One of Preston's pupils, Mike Black, gained 1,157 yards rushing and was named All-Pac 10. The Cougars finished 10-2 overall and were ranked ninth in the nation. Preston also coached at his alma mater, Hawai'i, from 1987-93, when he served on the same coaching staff with Paul Johnson. He had several roles during his tenure with the Rainbows, including coaching the offensive special teams, receivers and defensive backs, while also serving as the strength and conditioning liaison. Preston's seven-year stay at Hawai'i was highlighted by the first two bowl games in school history and the first Western Athletic Conference title ever for the program. In 1989, Hawai'i participated in its first bowl game, losing to Michigan State in the Aloha Bowl. The Rainbows won the WAC championship in 1992 and went on to defeat Illinois in the Holiday Bowl. Preston's first full-time coaching job came at Southern Illinois from 1984-86 when he tutored receivers and the defensive backfield. During his three seasons in Carbondale, SIU's defense improved dramatically -- from eighth to second in the conference -- while nine of his pupils received all-conference recognition. He was a graduate assistant at Hawai'i in 1980 and 1981, a part-time coach at UH in 1982, and a graduate assistant at Washington in 1983. During his career, Preston has also been a guest coach for the Toronto Argonauts, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Miami Dolphins and Philadelphia Eagles. A native of Los Angeles, Preston received a bachelor's degree in speech from Hawai'i in 1982. He was a two-year letterwinner (1978-79) with the Rainbow football team. Preston is a 1975 graduate of Banning High School in Los Angeles. Preston and his wife, Audrey, have three children: Amber, Evan and Quinn.

Mike Sewak, who has coached on the college level for 27 years including four years as head coach at Georgia Southern, enters his fourth year at Georgia Tech as co-coach of the offensive line. Sewak works primarily with the guards and centers. Since Sewak arrived at Tech in 2008, four Yellow Jacket offensive linemen have earned first-team AllACC honors: Andrew Gardner in 2008, Sean Bedford and Cord Howard in 2009, and Bedford in 2010. Also last season, sophomore Omoregie Uzzi earned second team all-conference honors. Bedford, who came to Georgia Tech as a walk-on defensive lineman, blossomed under Sewak into a two-time first team All-ACC performer. Over the last three years, the offensive line has helped pave the way for remarkable numbers put up by the Yellow Jackets. Tech led the ACC in total offense in 2008 and 2009. In 2009, the Jackets ranked second nationally in rushing offense. In 2010, Tech ranked first nationally in rushing for the first time in school history. Sewak, Johnson’s offensive coordinator at Georgia Southern from 1997 to 2001, replaced Johnson as head coach of the Eagles in 2002. He produced a record of 35-14 as Georgia Southern’s head coach and led the Eagles to three NCAA Division I-AA playoffs appearances and two Southern Conference championships. He was named the 2004 Southern Conference Coach of the Year. In his first season as head coach in 2002, Sewak led Georgia Southern to the I-AA semifinals and within a last-second missed field goal of the national championship game. The Eagles finished the season with an 11-3 record, won the school’s sixth consecutive league title and made their fifth straight national semifinals appearance. In addition, Sewak’s offense led the nation in rushing, averaging 386.2 yards per game. Georgia Southern followed with an uncharacteristic 7-4 mark in 2003, a season which saw Sewak valiantly sidestep adversity and numerous key injuries to guide GSU to victories in six of its last eight games and earn his second straight rushing title as a head coach with a 335.6 yards per game average. Sewak put GSU back on track in 2004. Georgia Southern rolled through the regular season with an offensive juggernaut, averaging 47 points per game and winning eight games in a row between losses to I-A Georgia and Southern Conference co-champion Furman, the No. 2 ranked team in I-AA. While young on both sides of the ball in 2005, Georgia Southern led I-AA in rushing again. After a 1-2 start, the Eagles won seven of their last eight games to clinch an at-large playoff bid. The only loss during that stretch was to Appalachian State, the Southern Conference champion and the No. 2 seed in the I-AA playoffs. Sewak also led the Eagles to a win over Furman when the Paladins were ranked No. 1 in the country. As offensive coordinator under Johnson at Georgia Southern from 1997 to 2001, Sewak's offensive unit consistently ranked as one of the nation's best at the NCAA Division I-AA level during the five-year span. After finishing second in rushing offense, total offense and scoring offense in 1998, the Eagles improved to a first-place national standing in all three categories in 1999 - averaging 419.0 rushing yards, 551.7 total yards and 50.0 points per game. In all, as Georgia Southern's offensive coordinator from 1997 to 2001, the Eagles rolled to a 62-10 mark, scored 2,855 points (39.7 ppg), picked up 25,941 rushing yards (360.3 ypg), 7,816 passing yards (108.6 ypg) and 33,757 total yards (468.8 ypg). Sewak also played a key role in helping lead Georgia Southern to five straight Southern Conference championships and NCAA

Division I-AA playoff appearances, three national championship games and two national titles in 1999 and 2000. In addition, three Georgia Southern offensive linemen earned All-America honors under his direct guidance from 1997 to 2001. Guard Mark Williams, who also was the recipient of backto-back Southern Conference Jacob's Blocking Trophies in '97 and '98, tackle Rich McGrath and center Matt Winslette all earned national honors under Sewak's leadership. During his time at Georgia Southern, Sewak took an active role in the community, serving as a member of the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) in the Bulloch County (Ga.) School District. He kept ties with the Special Olympics program, serving as a volunteer in various capacities. He also instilled a community relations leadership role for his players who spent many lunch and reading sessions with children at Statesboro's Mill Creek Elementary School and donated their time to the March of Dimes Walk America and "Operation Cleanup”. Sewak was appointed as the honorary chairperson of the Keep Bulloch Beautiful campaign in February, 2002, and was selected to a similar capacity for the 2003 Bulloch County's Walk America in January. Prior to his second stint at Georgia Southern, Sewak helped turn around a struggling program at Ohio University as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach under current Wake Forest head coach Jim Grobe in 1995 and 1996. The Bobcats, after going 0-11 prior to Sewak’s arrival, went 2-8-1 in ’95 before posting a 6-6 record in 1996 – the school’s best mark since 1982. Sewak directed an offensive unit which ranked first in the Mid-America Conference in rushing with a 274.0 per game average. Prior to Ohio, Sewak spent eight years as an assistant coach at Hawai’i, where he coached the Warriors’ offensive line for seven seasons and the wide receivers for one. During his tenure in Honolulu, Hawaii won the 1992 Western Athletic Conference championship, broke more than 150 offensive records, and finished among the nation's offensive leaders each year, averaging 31.7 points and 418 yards per game. Sewak’s first stint at Georgia Southern came as an assistant coach with the Eagles in 1985 and 1986 when he worked under coach Erk Russell. Sewak coached the running backs and the defensive backs on national championship teams in 1985 and 1986, respectively. The Eagles captured their first two NCAA Division I-AA titles those seasons, recording consecutive 13-2 records. Sewak’s first association with Georgia Tech came in 1984 when he served as a graduate assistant tight ends coach under head coach Bill Curry. A native of Johnstown, Pa., Sewak began his career in 1982 at Hobart (N.Y.) College where he served as offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. A three-year letterman as an offensive lineman at Virginia, Sewak earned a degree in psychology from UVa in 1981. He was invited to tryouts with the Baltimore Colts and Pittsburgh Steelers after the completion of his collegiate playing eligibility. Sewak added a masters degree in the spring of 2008 from Georgia Southern. He and his wife, the former Robin Farmery of Marietta, Ga., are the parents of three children -- Michael Robert, Olivia and Nicholas.

In 2008, Speed helped first-year head coach Ken Niumatalolo to one of the most successful seasons for a first-year head coach in school history. The Mids posted an 8-5 record in 2008, which is the best mark for a first-year head coach at Navy since 1934. The eight wins qualified the Midshipmen for the EagleBank Bowl. Navy earned a 24-17 victory over 16th-ranked Wake Forest, which was Navy’s first win over a team ranked in the Associated Press Top 25 since 1985, as well as Navy’s victory the previous week over Rutgers. It was the first time since 1981 that Navy beat teams currently in the BCS in back-to-back weeks. Navy also defeated a program-record four bowl teams. The 2007 season -- Johnson’s final campaign in Annapolis -- was a memorable one as well as the Midshipmen posted an 8-5 record, won a school-record fifth-consecutive Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy, appeared in a school-record fifth-straight bowl game, and defeated Notre Dame for the first time since 1963. Safety Ketric Buffin became the first player in school history to intercept a pass in each of the first four games of the season. In 2006 one of Speed’s pupils, Keenan Little, became the first player in Navy history to score a defensive touchdown in both Service Academy games in the same year as Navy once again won the Commander-In-Chief’s Trophy and participated in a bowl game. Speed returned to the Naval Academy after a two-year hiatus at the Naval Academy Prep School in Newport, R.I., where he served as the Director of Athletics for two seasons and as the head football coach for one year.

Todd Spencer begins his 28th year of coaching and his fourth season at Georgia Tech as coach of the offensive line, with a primary focus on the tackle position. In his three years at Tech, Spencer has helped the Yellow Jackets produce remarkable numbers on offense. Georgia Tech led the ACC in total offense in 2008 and 2009. In 2009 the Jackets ranked second nationally in rushing offense. In 2010, Tech led the nation in rushing for the first time in school history. Over the last three years a Georgia Tech offensive lineman has earned All-ACC honors six times: Andrew Gardner (1st team) and Cord Howard (2nd team) in 2008, Howard (1st team) and Sean Bedford (1st team) in 2009, and Bedford (1st team) and sophomore Omoregie Uzzi (2nd team) in 2010. Gardner and Howard both went on to play in the NFL. In 2009, Spencer helped piece together a line that overcame several injuries to lead the ACC and rank second nationally in rushing offense (295.4 ypg), and lead the ACC in total offense (422.1 ypg). In Spencer’s first season at Tech, he helped a young offensive line learn a completely new offensive system and blocking scheme. Despite injuries to both senior starters at tackle, the Yellow Jackets led the ACC and ranked fourth nationally in rushing offense (272.2 ypg) and first in the ACC in total offense (372.5 ypg). In the summer of 2008, Spencer was named one of the nation’s top five offensive line coaches by CBSSports.com. Spencer came to Georgia Tech after 11 seasons at the Naval Academy, including six seasons under head coach Paul Johnson. Spencer saw firsthand the remarkable turnaround of the Midshipmen football program. Over Spencer’s final four seasons in Annapolis, Navy won 35 games, advanced to a postseason bowl game four consecutive years and won a school-record four straight Commander-In-Chief’s Trophies. In 2007, Spencer helped Navy produce amazing numbers. The Midshipmen ranked first nationally in rushing (348.8 ypg), 10th in scoring (39.3 ppg), 22nd in total offense (444.1 ypg) and Spencer’s offensive line allowed just 1.08 sacks per game, which ranked ninth nationally. Spencer teamed up with Ken Niumatalolo, Johnson’s successor at Navy, in 2006 to coach an offensive line that helped pave the way for the nation's top rushing offense for the third time in five seasons. In 2005, Spencer was part of a staff that helped the Mids average a nation's-best 318.7 yards per contest, as Navy won a then-school-record second-straight bowl game and claimed the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy. In 2004, Spencer helped an offensive line that was hampered by injuries all year to perform well enough for the Midshipmen to finish third in the country in rushing (289.5), win a school-record tying 10 games (the most wins since 1905), win the Emerald Bowl and capture the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy in back-to-back years. Navy's offensive line was key in the NCAA record 26-play, 94-yard, 14:26 epic drive in the Emerald Bowl. Offensive guard August Roitsch was named to the Sports Illustrated AllBowl Team, while the starting offensive line was selected to the College Football News AllBowl Team. In 2003, despite a lack of experience up front, the Mids led the nation in rushing (323.2 ypg) and set school records for rushing yards per game, total rushing yards (4,202), rushing yards per attempt (5.5), rushing touchdowns (44), total offense (5,506), total offense per game (423.5) and yards per play (6.0) as Navy went 8-5, won the Commander-InChief's Trophy and earned a berth in the Houston Bowl. In 2002, Spencer developed Derek Jaskowiak into a College Football News All-Independent selection and an Honorable Mention All-East performer. Jaskowiak was also selected to participate in the Hula Bowl All-Star Game. In 2000, Spencer saw pupil Hoot Stahl invited to play in the Blue-Gray All-Star Game. Spencer brought a vast knowledge of the option attack to Annapolis after spending six seasons as the offensive line coach at option-oriented Oregon State. In 1993, Oregon State's rushing offense finished second in the nation, averaging 300.6 yards per game. Known for his intensity on the field, Spencer has also been the offensive line coach at Northern Illinois (1990) and Texas-El Paso (1989), and was the offensive coordinator at Southern Utah (1988) and Trinity Valley Community College (1986-87). He got into the major college ranks as a graduate assistant (defensive backs) for Rich Brooks at Oregon (1984-85) and was a graduate assistant (offensive line) for Fred Akers at Texas (1985-86). A native of Beaverton, Ore., Spencer attended Whitworth College in Spokane, Wash., from 1974-76, and was a defensive back under Hugh Campbell, a former head coach of the Houston Oilers. He then transferred to Pacific Lutheran (1977-79), where he played safety for two years. Spencer earned his bachelor's degree in physical education from Pacific Lutheran (1979) and his M.A. from Linfield College in physical education in 1981. He is the father of two daughters, Whitney and Ashley.

DAN RADAKOVICH Now in his sixth year as Director of Athletics, Dan Radakovich has helped take a Georgia Tech program rich in athletic tradition to a higher level of excellence and national respect. Since Radakovich arrived on the Flats in 2006, Georgia Tech has competed for conference and national championships across the board, Yellow Jacket student-athletes have excelled in the classroom and Tech’s facilities rate among the finest in the nation. The 2010-11 academic year was another extremely successful campaign in Georgia Tech athletics:  Georgia Tech participated in NCAA postseason play in women’s basketball, men’s and women’s tennis, baseball, softball and golf.  Tech hosted NCAA postseason regionals for men’s tennis, women’s tennis and baseball. The Yellow Jackets also served as host of the ACC Softball Tournament.

The volleyball team posted winning records overall and in ACC play.  The women’s basketball team enjoyed a record-setting season in 2010-11. The Yellow Jackets won a school-record 24 games, earned a fifth straight NCAA Tournament berth and a five seed, and 7,325 fans flocked to Alexander Memorial Coliseum when the Jackets hosted Connecticut.

Danny Hall (baseball) became just the fourth coach in ACC history to win 300 conference games. Bryan Shelton (women’s tennis) won his 200th career match.  Several student-athletes also enjoyed remarkable years. Kelsi Weseman (softball) was a first team All-American. Alex Montgomery (women’s basketball) was the 10th player overall selected in the WNBA Draft. Guillermo Gomez, Kevin King and Juan Spir (men’s tennis) all earned All-America honors. Gomez broke the school record for victories with 119. James White (golf) was named first team AllAmerican. Paul Haley (golf) won the ACC individual championship.

ACC Player of the Year in their respective sport, and 24 have earned Academic AllAmerica honors from at least one source. The construction of new facilities or upgrades to existing ones has been a focus of Radakovich’s tenure. This past year, construction began on two major projects -- the John and Mary Brock Football Practice Facility and McCamish Pavilion. The football indoor practice facility will be completed in July of 2011. McCamish Pavilion, the future home for Tech men’s and women’s basketball, will open its doors in time for the start of the 2012-13 seasons. The previous year saw the completion of Shirley Clements Mewborn Field, home for Tech’s softball program, which was unveiled prior to the start of the 2009 season. The Zelnak Center, a practice facility for Georgia Tech basketball, was in place prior to the start of the 2009-10 season. Other facility upgrades under Radakovich include the transformation of Tech’s former football locker room on the ground floor of the Edge Athletic Center into a new Technology Center, which benefits academic support services for all Yellow Jacket student-athletes, and cosmetic and functional improvements to Bobby Dodd Stadium. Outside the competition venues, Radakovich directed an overhaul of the annual giving and donation structure for Tech athletics, anchored by the TECH Fund, which establishes minimum giving levels tied to season tickets in various seating areas of Bobby Dodd Stadium and Alexander Memorial Coliseum. Radakovich also initiated the Athletic Director’s Initiative Fund, started in June, 2006, which has raised in cash and pledges more than $12 million. Radakovich has also played an integral role in fund-raising initiatives for facility projects including McCamish Pavilion, the John and Mary Brock Football Practice Facility and the Byers Tennis Complex. A 2009 gift from the Henry F. McCamish, Jr., family for the renovation of Alexander Memorial Coliseum, could be worth up to $15 million toward that project. Named Georgia Tech’s Director of Athletics on Feb. 22, 2006, Radakovich came to Georgia Tech after five years as senior associate athletics director at LSU (200106). He previously served as the Athletics Director at American University in 2000-01. That followed stints as associate athletics director at South Carolina (1994-2000) and Long Beach State (1989-94) as well as two years as the athletics business manager at Miami (FL) (1983-85). Just the seventh Director of Athletics in Tech history, Radakovich was named to succeed Dave Braine, who retired after nearly nine years in the post. Radakovich also follows in the footsteps of storied names such as John Heisman, Bobby Dodd and Homer Rice. A graduate of Center High School near Aliquippa, Pa., and a member of its Alumni Hall of Fame, Radakovich, 53, became a football letterwinner and student coach at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, where he graduated in 1980 with a bachelor of science degree in finance. He was enshrined into the Beaver County Sports Hall of Fame in April, 2008, and was recognized as a Distinguished Alumni from IUP in March, 2009. Radakovich added a master’s degree in business administration from Miami (FL) in 1982. He also completed the Sports Management Institute’s executive education program in 1992. He is married to the former Marcie McDonald, and the couple has two children, Christian, 21, and Grant, 17. Christian is a senior Industrial Engineering major at Georgia Tech.

In all that time, Hogan has known nothing but victories and championships. Hogan has had an uncanny run of working with successful football programs. At four different schools, Hogan has been a part of 386 Division I football games with a record of 290-91-5. He has been a part of three national championships, 18 bowl appearances and his teams have been in post-season play in 26 consecutive seasons, His nine-year stint at Montana included two football National Championships and more than a dozen conference titles in both men’s and women’s sports. Hogan cut his teeth on a 17-year association with Florida State University. He played an integral role in that program’s rise to one of the nation’s premier athletic programs. In true “rags-toriches” form, Hogan’s first job at FSU was that of an unpaid student intern in 1975. Twenty years later he became the school’s interim athletics director, overseeing 15 sports and a $28 million budget. During most of his Florida State tenure, Hogan was responsible for all external affairs -- sports information, marketing, promotions and broadcasting. He was charged with negotiating and maintaining the school’s radio and television relationships. Hogan received a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from Florida State in 1979 and worked briefly with two minor league baseball teams as a broadcaster and public relations specialist. He spent one year with the Houston Astros AAA farm club before moving to Albuquerque and a oneyear stint with the Los Angeles Dodgers AAA affiliate. While in Albuquerque, Hogan was coaxed back into collegiate athletics, becoming assistant sports information and marketing director at the University of New Mexico. He returned to Florida State in 1982 as the school’s sports information director. Wayne is married to the former Dawn Dewberry of Treasure Island, Fla., and they have three children: Lindsay, Kelly and J.P. 2011 GEORGIA TECH INFORMATION GUIDE

GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011

Yellow Jackets overcome injuries to earn 14th consecutive bowl bid

2010 SEASON SUMMARY Georgia Tech, the most prolific rushing team in college football in 2010, won six games and played in a bowl game for the 14th consecutive season. The Yellow Jackets finished 6-7 overall, 4-4 in the ACC, extending their conference-record streak of finishing .500 or better in league play to 16 consecutive seasons. Tech led the nation in rushing (323.3 yards per game) for the first time in school history. Eight of Tech’s 2010 opponents played in postseason bowl games. The Jackets posted a pair of ACC road wins, winning at North Carolina (30-24) and at Wake Forest (24-20). The win over Wake came in dramatic fashion as senior quarterback Joshua Nesbitt hit senior Correy Earls with a 9-yard touchdown pass with 15 seconds remaining. An injury to Nesbitt -- a broken arm suffered late in the first half Nov. 4 at Virginia Tech -- rendered the Yellow Jackets at less than full strength down the stretch. Sophomore Tevin Washington did an admirable job in relief, but Tech clearly missed the 2009 first team AllACC quarterback in narrow losses to Virginia Tech, Georgia and Air Force. The Jackets allowed a fourth-quarter kickoff return for a touchdown (at Virginia Tech), missed a game-tying PAT (at Georgia) and fumbled inside the 5-yard line against Air Force in those losses. Senior Anthony Allen rushed for 1,316 yards and was joined on the All-ACC first team by Sean Bedford. Sophomore guard Omoregie Uzzi was named second team All-ACC.

Noting The Yellow Jackets In 2010  Georgia Tech played in a bowl game for the 14th consecutive season, tying for the fourth-longest active streak nationally behind Florida State (29), Florida (20) and Virginia Tech (18).  The Yellow Jackets finished .500 or better in ACC play for a conference-record 16th consecutive season.  Tech led the nation in rushing offense (323.3 yards per game). The Yellow Jackets finished in the top five nationally in rushing in 2008, 2009 and 2010.  Tech rushed for a school-record 4,203 yards, breaking the record it set in 2009 (4,136 yards). The Jackets’ rushing average of 323.3 yards per game was the second-highest in school history behind only the 1975 team (329.7 ypg).  Tech rushed for 300 yards in a game eight times and produced 400 yards of total offense in a game eight times.  Tech averaged 407.2 yards per game of total offense to become just the sixth team in school history to average more than 400 yards per game.  In the regular season finale at Georgia, the Yellow Jackets rushed for 411 yards and had 512 yards of total offense between the hedges.  Georgia Tech's 346 yards rushing at Virginia Tech were the most against the Hokies in defensive coordinator Bud Foster's 16 seasons (200 games).  The Jackets streak of consecutive winning seasons ended at 13.  Three Yellow Jackets were named to the All-ACC team. Senior center Sean Bedford was named to the first team for the second straight year. He was joined on the first team by senior B-back Anthony Allen. Sophomore guard Omoregie Uzzi was named second team.  Allen rushed for 1,316 yards and ranked second in the ACC in rushing (101.2 ypg).  Allen (Senior Bowl) and cornerback Mario Butler (East-West Shrine Game) were invited to postseason allstar games. Allen and Butler were also invited to participate in the NFL combine.  Bedford was named one of the 20 smartest athletes in sports by Sporting News, and he earned the Burlsworth Trophy as the nation’s best former walk-on.  Tech’s 20-man senior class helped the Jackets, over the last four years, compile 33 victories, 22 ACC wins, a conference championship and a BCS bowl berth.  Anthony Allen (Louisville), Anthony Egbuniwe (Tulsa), Mario Edwards (Virginia Tech), Lucas Cox (Connecticut) and Kevin Cone (Shorter) -- all transfers -- either started or were listed second on the depth chart.  Six true freshmen -- LB Jeremiah Attaochu, AB B.J. Bostic, DB Fred Holton, DB Isaiah Johnson, K Justin Moore and CB Louis Young -- all saw action.  Junior offensive tackle Nick Claytor and junior safety/punt returner Jerrard Tarrant both surprisingly opted to forego their senior seasons in 2011 and enter the NFL draft. Claytor started 10 games in 2010. Tarrant led the Jackets in interceptions with three, including one returned for a touchdown against NC State.

Costly turnovers and special teams miscues prevented Georgia Tech from cashing in on even more victories in 2010:  In a 28-25 upset loss at Kansas on Sept. 11, Tech had a 13-yard punt, a key roughing-the-passer penalty and a kickoff that went out of bounds.  In a loss to NC State, the Jackets pulled to within 31-

GEORGIA TECH FOOTBALL 2011 28 on a pick-six by junior Jerrard Tarrant in the fourth quarter, but allowed the Wolfpack to march the field on their next possession.  At Virginia Tech, the Hokies returned a fourth-quarter kickoff for a touchdown.  At Georgia, Tech missed a potential tying PAT late in the game.  In the Independence Bowl against Air Force, a fumble inside the five-yard line ruined a 17-play drive.

Mario Butler’s pick-six helped secure a win over Duke.

Special Teams: The Good And The Bad  First the bad news. Tech ranked 114th nationally in net punting, 97th in punt returns, 97th in kick returns and 98th in punt return yardage defense.  The Yellow Jackets, however, ranked 11th nationally in kickoff return yardage defense (19.1 ypa). That ranking would be even higher if not for a kick return for a touchdown by Virginia Tech.

Joshua Nesbitt ran for 130 yards and three touchdowns, Roddy Jones added two scoring runs and No. 16 Georgia Tech beat South Carolina State 41-10. Nesbitt kept the offense moving, despite an inability to establish a passing game. Nesbitt was only 1 for 6 for 8 yards with an interception, but he averaged 8.1 yards on his 16 carries. Jones had touchdown runs of 1 and 15 yards. Tevin Washington added an 11-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter as Georgia Tech had 372 yards rushing with six touchdowns. South Carolina State's Asheton Jordan ran 125 yards on 17 carries and set up the Bulldogs' only touchdown.

Redshirt freshman Jordan Webb threw three touchdown passes as Kansas beat 15th-ranked Georgia Tech, 28-25. The defending ACC champion Yellow Jackets were favored by two touchdowns over the team that lost to a mediocre Missouri Valley team 6-3. But they dropped several passes and aided Kansas scoring drives with a 13-yard punt, a roughingthe-passer penalty and a kickoff that went out of bounds and let the Jayhawks start on the 40. Nesbitt scored on runs of 9 and 4 yards, giving him five rushing TDs in two games. The Yellow Jackets' potent ground game amassed 291 yards and Nesbitt threw for 116 yards and a TD.

Andre Ellington rushed for a career high 166 yards and two long touchdowns as Clemson ended a four-game losing streak to Georgia Tech in a 27-13 win. The Tigers hadn't beaten the Yellow Jackets in four years, a run that included a 39-34 loss in last season's ACC title game. But Ellington struck for scoring runs of 55 and 42 yards in the opening half and added a 10-yard TD catch in the third quarter to end Georgia Tech's streak. Clemson's defense did its share in shutting down the Yellow Jackets' ACC-leading rushing attack to 242 yards, nearly 100 fewer than their average. Georgia Tech's point total was its lowest of the season. Score by Quarters Georgia Tech Clemson Team Qtr CU 1st CU 1st CU 2nd GT 2nd GT 3rd CU 3rd GT 3rd CU 4th

November 4, 2010  Blacksburg, Va. Lane Stadium  66,233 David Wilson returned a kickoff 90 yards for a touchdown with 2:23 to play and No. 20 Virginia Tech held on to beat Georgia Tech 28-21. Wilson's return came on the kickoff right after the Yellow Jackets tied it, 21-21. The Yellow Jackets played the second half without quarterback Joshua Nesbitt, who was injured late in the first half trying to make a tackle after throwing an interception at Virginia Tech's 1. The injury, a broken right forearm, came after he led one scoring drive, then ran 71 yards for another touchdown. The Yellow Jackets fell behind 21-14 with 6:34 to play on Tyrod Taylor's 2-yard pass to Andre Smith, but they immediately answered behind backup quarterback Tevin Washington.

Independence Bowl  Dec. 27, 2010 Shreveport, La.  39,362

November 27, 2010  Athens, Ga. Sanford Stadium  92,746

The Independence Bowl featured the nation’s two best running teams, and special teams proved to be the difference. Air Force cashed in when Georgia Tech muffed a punt in the second half, getting a go-ahead touchdown run from Jared Tew in a 14-7 victory. Back-up kicker Zack Bell converted the first two field-goal attempts of his career before Tew's 3-yard run gave the Falcons the lead for good. Air Force's only touchdown came four plays after Daniel McKayhan's second muffed punt of the game. Georgia Tech's 327 yards rushing per game this season edged Air Force's 317.9 average for the nation's top spot. But with each defense familiar with the scheme, there were no surprises, and both teams were held under their season rushing average - Georgia Tech with 279 and Air Force with 170. Georgia Tech's Tevin Washington rushed for 131 yards and Anthony Allen added 91 as Georgia Tech outgained Air Force 320-287. But the Yellow Jackets committed four turnovers -- including three fumbles.

Aaron Murray threw for three touchdowns and Justin Houston returned a fumble 18 yards for a score to give Georgia a 4234 victory over visiting Georgia Tech. Tech’s Anthony Allen scored on an 8-yard run with 4:57 left. But Scott Blair missed the PAT, ending a streak of 77 straight made. Georgia tacked on a touchdown run by Washaun Ealey that wasn't contested by the Tech defense, which just stood around so the Yellow Jackets could get one more shot on offense. Anthony Allen rushed for 166 yards for Georgia Tech, which ran 92 plays for 512 yards and controlled the ball for 38:14.

TECH FOOTBALL HISTORY WRONG WAY RIEGELS The Most Stunning Play In Rose Bowl History Helped Yellow Jackets Beat Cal, Win National Title

GEORGIA TECH 222, CUMBERLAND 0 Most Lopsided Game In Yellow Jacket History Came In Atlanta In 1916 The most lopsided game of all time happened in Atlanta on Oct. 7, 1916. The previous spring, Cumberland’s baseball team had trounced Tech. Cumberland University was located in Lebanon, Tenn., and the Cumberland squad was actually comprised of professional players from nearby Nashville. Georgia Tech head coach John Heisman was not amused, and the Tech students and alumni howled for revenge, so Heisman offered the Bulldogs a $500 guarantee to come to Atlanta for a football game. In the game, Tech scored 32 touchdowns, averaged 3.8 points per minute, carried the ball for 978 yards, and never threw a pass. Cumberland, since it was losing yardage faster than it was gaining real estate, began to kick the football back to the Jackets immediately after Tech kicked off to them. Amazingly, neither team made a first down in the game because Tech scored within four downs on every possession. All-American Everett Strupper led Tech with six touchdowns.

The most stunning single play in the history of the Rose Bowl propelled Georgia Tech to its first bowl victory when Roy Riegels’ infamous Wrong Way Run turned out right as the Rambling Wreck beat California, 8-7, in the 1929 Rose Bowl. Early in the second q u a r t e r, with the score tied 0-0, Tech halfback Stumpy Thomason was hit by the Golden B e a r s ’ Benny Lom. He fumbled around the Tech 35- Tech’s float in the Rose Bowl Parade. yard line, and Riegels scooped up the bouncing ball. For Riegels, a center and captain of his Golden Bear team, fate had sent him running free and clear. He got a good block from a teammate, slipped off a tackler and spun around. But something was wrong. “Stop, Roy! You’re running the wrong way,” yelled Lom. Riegels thought the speedier Lom was asking for a lateral. At the 10-yard line, Lom grabbed Riegels, but Riegels shook him loose. Finally, at the one-yard line, Lom pulled Riegels down, but not before a 64-yard run into immortality. California still had the ball. On the first play, the Golden Bears attempted to punt the ball out of the end zone with Riegels snapping to Lom. However, the left side of the California line collapsed and Tech’s Vance Maree blocked the punt, which rolled out of bounds for a safety. Those two points turned out to be the winning points as both teams traded touchdowns in the second half, and the Rambling Wreck eventually prevailed, 87, in one of the strangest games ever played. Tech’s Rose Bowl win capped a perfect 10-0 season, the first undefeated season for head coach William Alexander, and the Rambling Wreck captured its second national title.

Tech won the 1929 Rose Bowl, 8-7, against California thanks in part to Riegels’ run.

NCAA SINGLE-GAME RUSHING RECORD

CLINT CASTLEBERRY

Eddie Lee Ivery Rushed For 356 Yards Against Air Force In 1978

Georgia Tech’s Only Retired Jersey Belongs To Castleberry, Who Died In World War II

On a day (Nov. 11, 1978) when ice skates would have been more appropriate footwear than cleated shoes and when an agitated stomach threatened his very presence in Georgia Tech’s lineup, tailback Eddie Lee Ivery made college football history. On 26 rushes, Eddie Lee Ivery gained 356 yards, more yards in a single game than any other major college back ever, on a field that required de-snowing by a street sweeper twice before the game. In fact, the field was made even more treacherous by 20-degree temperatures augmented by a 20 mph wind (making the chill factor zero degrees) which turned the Falcon Stadium turf into a frozen tundra. Complicating Ivery’s plight was his stomach. After a nifty reversal of direction, which resulted in a 73-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter giving Tech a 14-0 advantage, Ivery could be seen on the sidelines doubled over at the waist, vomiting and in obvious pain. At halftime, Ivery had 122 yards on 12 carries, but his status for the second half was very much in doubt. An 80-yard touchdown run with 6:08 left in the third quarter gave Ivery 240 yards and broke Brent Cunningham’s school record of 217 yards set in 1970 against Clemson. With 10:25 left in the game, Ivery scored on a 57yard run, giving him 309 yards. Besides giving Tech a 35-21 lead against a team that obviously was not going to surrender without a fight, it put Ivery within 41 yards of the NCAA single game record of 350 yards set by Michigan State’s Eric Allen against Purdue in 1971. When an Air Force drive fizzled at Tech’s eight-yard line on an incomplete pass, Rodgers told the team he’d let Ivery run the ball until he got the record. Ivery crashed over right tackle for 13 yards, leaving him just 28 yards short of the record. A run around right end gained another 13. Only 15 to go. Adding to the drama, Ivery’s stomach began to churn again at that point, to the extent he had to leave the game. His replacement, Ray Friday, shocked everyone by bolting 66 yards straight up the middle for his second touchdown of the day. More than six minutes remained when Tech kicked off to Air Force with a 4221 lead, plenty of time to retrieve the ball and let Ivery get the record. The chance came when linebacker Henry Johnson intercepted a pass at the Air Force 41-yard line. Ivery trotted back onto the field and rushed 21 yards with his first carry, giving him the record.

The only retired jersey in Georgia Tech's storied football history is the No. 19 worn by running back Clint Castleberry in 1942. Though just a freshman, he finished third in the Heisman Trophy voting as he led Tech to a 9-2 record, highlighted by historic victories at Notre Dame and Navy and capped by a berth in the Cotton Bowl. Just weeks later, he enlisted in the U.S. Army, and on Nov. 7, 1944, his plane disappeared. For one fleeting season in 1942, Clint Castleberry blazed across the football field like a ‘crazed jackrabbit.’ Some said he could have been the greatest Tech player in history, if it weren’t for World War II and a plane that disappeared off the West African coast without a trace. He flashed across the fields at Notre Dame and Navy that fall of ’42, leading Georgia Tech’s shocking onslaughts, while Sir Bernard Montgomery flashed across North Africa in pursuit of Erwin Rommel, and the Russians made their goal-line stand at Stalingrad. He had played only one college football game when Notre Dame scout Wayne Millner warned coach Frank Leahy that “the most dangerous runner in America” would invade South Bend. As a freshman, he finished third in the Heisman Trophy balloting. And then he was gone. -- Ed Hinton, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
