Paul Johnson channels McKayla Maroney when asked about his team

Wednesday August 12th, 2015

Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson isn't exactly known for being easy to please. 

It's not a surprise, therefore, that he left Tuesday's Yellow Jackets preseason practice underwhelmed with his team. This can get awkward for reporters trying to get insight on anything positive, as WSB-TV in Atlanta found out.

Asked by a reporter what he was encouraged by in practice, Johnson scrunched his face and bobbed his head side-to-side as he struggled to think of one thing.  

"I don't know,” he finally said. “Quaterback's a good player. Most days.”

The face Johnson makes when pondering the question bears a striking resemblance to another famously not impressed person—Olympic medalist McKayla Maroney, who's face on the medal stand after winning silver in 2012 was forever etched as a popular meme.

The resemblance is uncanny.
