Former St. Charles player named head coach at Tulane
Johnson has been the wide receivers coach for the New Orleans Saints since early in 2006 and was critical in the development of one of the league’s top offensive units due to the development of Marques Colston, Robert Meachem, Lance Moore and Devery Henderson.
After graduating from St. Charles Catholic High School Johnson attended the University of Idaho and he was an assistant coach at San Diego State, Southern Methodist, the University of California and Miami (Fla.).
He has recruited and mentored the likes of NFL Hall of Fame running back Marshall Faulk and star wide receivers Santana Moss, Andre Johnson and Reggie Wayne.
The standout college recruiter is responsible for recruiting three players - Faulk, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed and Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Wayne. Reed and Wayne also seem destined for the Hall of Fame.
Johnson is known for being a stickler for details, a very hard worker and he was also highly regarded as one of the top recruiters in the nation at Miami (Fla.).
Those recruiting talents will be put to the ultimate test as the new head coach of the Tulane Green Wave, but he is in prime position to land some outstanding talent in a football rich state that ranks sixth in the nation in producing talent for the college ranks.
Tulane has not posted a winning record since the 2002 season under former head coach Chris Scelfo.
