The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets will be led by 5th year head coach Paul Johnson in 2012as the team looks to improve on an 8-5 record from 2011. The Jackets were invited to 2011 Sun Bowl where they suffered an agonizing loss to Utah, blowing a double-digit lead. This season, Paul Johnson’s offensive squad will likely look even better than last year, with the return of quarterback Tevin Washington and the entire backfield. Coach Johnson has had a great summer in recruiting, and with the addition of former Vanderbilt commit linebacker Nigel Bowden, the defense will likely see a noticeable improvement. The Jackets don’t have an easy schedule ahead of them, but if they improve during the offseason as many expect them to, they will easily find themselves with their 16th consecutive bowl appearance.
