"I've known Ted for a long time and I'm excited that he has decided to come back to Georgia Tech," coach Paul Johnson said in a prepared statement. "He's one of the most respected football coaches in the nation."Well, he does have that ring Cam bought him. So there's that.
But seriously, I don't know why everyone is so surprised Roof left Penn State, or that Johnson made the offer. This is Roof's 14th coaching position since he started in the late 1980's. Plus he's from outside of Atlanta and went to Tech. He spent four years on North Ave. with O'Leary.
As far as Johnson extending the offer...who else was he going to get?
