Johnson is a Sparks native and former standout football player at Sparks High School, where he graduated in 1993 and was a three-sport student athlete. He has been coaching football at area high schools since 1999 and has been the assistant varsity coach at Spanish Springs High School the past four years.
“Being a native Nevadan, I am aware of and have great appreciation for the football tradition at Wooster,” Johnson said. “I am honored and excited to represent Wooster now as the head football coach and hope to do so in a way that will honor the school and all who have an interest in Wooster football. I am very appreciative to Principal Biersdorff and her team for this opportunity.”
