Georgia Tech's Johnson to get $17.17 million

It's safe to say Paul Johnson isn't going anywhere anytime soon.

Not when athletic director Dan Radakovich just tweaked Johnson's salary to $17.17 million over the next seven years, including $2.3 million next season. This makes him the second-highest paid coach in the ACC behind Bobby Bowden, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The second-highest paid coach in the ACC, and he hasn't even won a division title yet, let alone an ACC championship. For that kind of money, Radakovich better have bought himself seven ACC titles.
