Georgia Tech will probably fill its coaching vacancy this week, coach Paul Johnson said.
The coach will replace co-offensive line coach Todd Spencer, who resigned Jan. 27 after violating NCAA rules banning text messages to prospects and their guardians or parents. Johnson would not offer more detail about the hire and did not specify which position he would coach.
“I have not offered anybody the job yet, but I probably will in the next day or two,” he said Tuesday.
Johnson did say that he did not foresee any more changes on the staff. He said he interviewed “three or four” candidates, and that he didn’t have a prior working relationship with all of them.
He laughed at the rumor that former Maryland coach and Tech offensive coordinator Ralph Friedgen had been a possibility.
“There wasn’t any truth to that,” he said.
