Paul Johnson (born August 20, 1957(1957-08-20) in Newland, North Carolina), is the head coach of football at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is a Western Carolina University graduate and was previously the head coach of both the United States Naval Academy and Georgia Southern University.

Prior to becoming a head coach, Johnson spent eight seasons as offensive coordinator at the University of Hawai'i from 1987 to 1994. He helped lead the Rainbow Warriors to their first Western Athletic Conference title and their first major bowl victory, in the 1992 Holiday Bowl. In 1995 and 1996, he served as Navy offensive coordinator and brought his option offense with him. In 1996, Navy recorded its first winning season in 14 years, going 9-3, including a victory at the Aloha Bowl. Johnson has performed well against rivals, including a perfect 6-0 mark against rival Army while head coach at Navy and a 1-1 record against rival UGA while head coach at Georgia Tech.

Johnson served as the head coach at Georgia Southern University from 1997 through 2001. During his time at Georgia Southern, the Eagles captured the NCAA Division I-AA national football championships in 1999 and 2000, and finished as runners-up in 1998. He is also one of only four coaches to ever record 50 wins in their first four seasons as head coach at the Division I level.
