ATLANTA (AP) _ Paul Johnson officially took over as coach of
Georgia Tech Wednesday and announced his coaching staff, including
three assistants from Navy.
Johnson, who was Navy's head coach for six seasons before being
named last month to replace the fired Chan Gailey, named Dave
Wommack defensive coordinator. Wommack, the outside linebackers
coach at Southern Miss last season, has been coordinator at
Arkansas, Southern Miss, UNLV and Southwest Missouri State.
Members of the 2007 Georgia Tech staff comprise the rest of the
defensive assistants -- line coach Giff Smith, linebackers coach
Brian Jean-Mary and Charles Kelly, who will coach the cornerbacks
in 2008 after being special teams coordinator the past two seasons.
Brian Bohannon, who will be auarterbacks/b-backs coach, Todd
Spencer as co-offensive line loach, and Jeff Monken, slot
backs/special teams, were with Johnson for all six seasons at Navy.
Mike Sewak, who was Georgia Southern's head coach for four
seasons after Johnson left Statesboro for Navy, will serve as
co-offensive line coach.
Buzz Preston, who helped lead New Mexico to its first bowl
victory since 1961, will coach the wide receivers.
