Paul Johnson Solidifies Himself As Best Football Coach Golfer In The South

Paul Johnson doesn't care about golfing trophies.
Paul Johnson doesn't care about golfing trophies.

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.
