Paul Johnson is 27-9 in his three years as Navy's football coach. Navy won the Commander-In-Chief's Trophy this season, finishing with a 10-2 record. Navy ended its season with a 34-19 victory over New Mexico in the Emerald Bowl on Dec. 30. Johnson was also a unanimous selection for the Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award. Barbara, Baltimore: Congratulations on such a terrific season and congratulations on the Coach of the Year award. Any ideas on who we're likely to see in key positions next year?

A few weeks before the 2013 football season started at Navy, Ken Niumatalolo sat in his office and talked about how it was the most talented bunch of Midshipmen he had been around as both the team's head coach and as an assistant under both Paul Johnson and Charlie Weatherbie. Going into his seventh season as head coach, Niumatalolo knows that this year's team - led by junior quarterback Keenan Reynolds - could be even better than the one that finished 9-4 last fall by sweeping its fellow service academies and topping off the season with a contentious bowl victory over Middle Tennessee State.

In his own words, he has always been "one play away" from becoming the Navy quarterback. That one play turned into one season, then two, then three, as first Craig Candeto and then Aaron Polanco proved both effective and able to absorb the punishment that accompanies the position. Finally, as a senior, Lamar Owens is no longer a play away. He is firmly entrenched as the starter, has been voted the offensive captain by his teammates and is clearly on center stage. The tricky triple-option offense with which coach Paul Johnson has turned around the Midshipmen now is entrusted to a 5-foot-9, 185-pound whippet who has appeared primarily at mop-up time and on special teams through three years.

Shawn Petty is listed at 230 pounds, but he looked bigger than that as he took practice snaps in the end zone last week, dwarfing the other skill-position players standing around him. Petty - the converted freshman linebacker who will start at quarterback for the Terps against Georgia Tech on Saturday - seemed almost as wide as the center hiking him the ball during warmups before the Boston College game. He outweighs each of the four previous Maryland quarterbacks - all sidelined by season-ending injuries - by at least 25 pounds.

For most of Ken Niumatalolo's first four years as coach at Navy, the references to the past were nearly all positive reminders of how the program had kept up the standard set by his mentor and predecessor, Paul Johnson. Even last year, when Niumatalolo suffered his first losing season and Navy had its first losing record in nine years, there seemed to be a feeling that the Midshipmen weren't very far off, with five of the seven losses coming by a total of 11 points. This season is different - a painful flashback to what Navy football was like when Johnson first arrived in 2002.

News item: The Ravens have soundly beaten both teams from last year's AFC title game and appear to have the scariest defense in the league, but somehow are only fifth in this week's ESPN power rankings. My take: You could throw the first four teams after the No. 1 Packers in a hat, but the Ravens have been more dominant than the No. 3 Patriots and certainly deserve to be ranked ahead of the Detroit Lions until they play a few more good teams. Related News item: The Ravens got one of the earliest byes this year and will be off this weekend after Sunday night's uplifting victory over the New York Jets.

He has gone from being a virtual unknown outside the walls of the Naval Academy to a respected, if still hard to pronounce name, in the coaching community. He has won more games in his first four years than any coach in the program's history. But don't tell that to Ken Niumatalolo, especially this week. He has a lot more important matters to figure out. Like keeping his team from unraveling after last week's 35-34 overtime loss to Air Force that cost the Midshipmen a shot at getting back the coveted Commander in Chief's Trophy after losing it last season for the first time since 2002.

Paul Johnson had grown tired of the question. It was 2008, and the former Navy coach — entering his first season at Georgia Tech — was repeatedly asked by the media whether the option-based offense he ran so successfully at Navy would translate in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Johnson folded his arms and exhaled. "I get a kick out of, 'Will this work on this level?' he said. "I'm like, 'Are we playing the NFC East?' Last I looked, the last six years at Navy, we were playing Division I teams.

— As he was trying to get on Navy's recruiting radar five years ago, Kriss Proctor failed to convince a major skeptic that going to the academy was the right move. When Sandie Proctor refused to send her younger son's highlight tape out to the coaches in Annapolis, Kriss Proctor snuck one in the mail to Navy defensive end Matt Nechak, a family friend and fellow Southern Californian. Even during her son's recruiting visit, Proctor's mother was steadfast, despite his insistence on playing for the Midshipmen and commiting to at least five years in the military after graduation.

The fortunes of the Navy football team diverged in a loss to Rutgers in the second week of last season. Season-ending injuries to linebacker Clint Sovie and safety Jeff Deliz against the Scarlet Knights contributed to a defense that was one of the worst in the country. The Midshipmen finished toward the bottom of the Football Bowl Subdivision in several categories, including last in pass-defense efficiency. With new Navy coach Ken Niumatalolo and senior quarterback Kaipo-Noa Kaheaku-Enhada trying to keep the offense as potent as it was under Paul Johnson - the Mids led the nation in rushing for the third straight season and scored a school-record 511 points - the return of Sovie and Deliz could allow the Midshipmen to be as competitive in 2008 as they were when they finished 8-5 a year ago. "We've obviously got to get better on defense," Niumatalolo, the former offensive coordinator who was promoted when Johnson left for Georgia Tech, said as practice opened in Annapolis yesterday.

GREENSBORO, Ga. - Paul Johnson folds his arms and inhales. It's not that the former Navy coach is tired of answering questions from the media. Rather, it's one query that has exasperated him. How, Johnson was asked at least a half-dozen times yesterday during the Atlantic Coast Conference football media day, will your option-based spread offense - the one run so successfully at Navy - translate at Georgia Tech in the ACC? It's an offense Navy employed in scoring 30 or more points in six straight games last season.
