Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson is not concerned that the departure of athletic director Dan Radakovich could put his job in jeopardy. Georgia Tech has struggled this season, losing four of its past five games, and a new athletic director may not give Johnson the same support that Radakovich did, but the coach is not worried.

Johnson said he was sure they would hire a qualified person for the job and that he was focused on leading the Yellow Jackets to success. Georgia Tech (3-5, 2-3) will take on the Maryland Terrapins (4-4, 2-2) on Saturday.

Radakovich hired Johnson, who is in his fifth season at Georgia Tech. It was officially announced on Monday that Radakovich was leaving his post and taking the same position with the Clemson Tigers. While Georgia Tech searches for a new athletic director, Paul Griffin will serve in the position on an interim basis.
