In his obituary, Georgia Tech fan wished Paul Johnson to be fired

I’ve always found it interesting when a fan’s favorite team is tied into his/her obituary. While sports are just games, people truly live and die with them.

The latest case is the late Robley Henson Tatum of Atlanta. Tatum passed on Jan. 17, according to his obituary in The Atlanta Constitution. For the most part, it seems like he lived a fulfilled life. There was one wish, however, that was never granted. Tatum wanted Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson fired.

His obituary reads:

“He didn’t get his final wish for Tech, which to see (football coach) Paul Johnson get fired, but hey, there’s still time.”

As a person with no affiliation to the Yellow Jackets, I can easily see why Tatum would like to see the university move on from Johnson. If mediocrity is what Georgia Tech is after, he’s the guy, having only posted a 47-32 record over his six years coaching the team. He has had the Jackets in the hunt for the ACC title, but that’s due to a weak Coastal Division. For a football program with four claimed national titles, the last coming in 1990, the production will eventually have to increase.

I might be stepping out on a limb here (okay I am), but one of these days, Tatum will probably, albeit posthumously, get his wish.
