Head coach Paul Johnson of Georgia has agreed to a contract extension through the 2022 season, the school announced on Friday.

The 60-year-old Johnson has a 75-54 record in 10 seasons with the Yellow Jackets, including three ACC championship games, and a 3-5 record in bowl games.

“Aside from Bobby Dodd, no head coach in Georgia Tech football history has won more games in his first 10 seasons than Paul Johnson,” athletic director Todd Stansbury said in a statement.

“By extending Coach Johnson’s contract through 2022, we not only keep one of the most successful coaches in our illustrious history right here on The Flats, but we also ensure continued stability within our coaching staff.”

Johnson coached Georgia Tech to a victory over Clemson in the 2009 ACC Championship Game, the Yellow Jackets’ only conference title since 1990. He was selected the ACC’s coach of the Year in 2008, 2009 and 2014.
