Before coaching at Boerne HS, Johnson was the defensive coordinator, varsity sprinters coach and history teacher at Hebron High School from 2004-2008.
During his tenure at Hebron, the Hawks were District Champions from 2004-2008 and won the State 4A Division II Championship in 2007. Additionally, from 2004-2006 and in 2008, Hebron High School had the #1 rated defense in the district.
Johnson began his career in education in 2001 as a coach and history teacher at Allen High School. From 2001-2003, Allen High School won the District 9-5A Championship, as well as advancing to regional and area competitions.
Johnson played basketball and football for Southlake Carroll and football at Texas Tech.
