Paul Johnson took part in, and won, the Chick fil A Challenge yesterday. The Challenge is a golf tournament scramble-style for college football coaches of both the ACC and SEC where each coach is paired with a celebrity former athlete. Johnson was paired with a buddy from previous tournament, Jon Barry.
Coach Johnson also won the par-three contest the day before, landing just over 2 feet away from the pin. He's quite the golfer, but this is already known if you're a Techie.
