Johnson has most recently been the Offensive Coordinator at the University of Houston (2017) along with a Quarterbacks Coach and Offensive Coordinator with the Florida Gators (2018-2020) where he has been the man behind developing star Quarterbacks D'Eriq King in Houston and Kyle Trask at Florida
Before informing the University of Florida he was leaving to join the Philadelphia Eagles coaching staff, he recently interviewed for the Head Coaching job openings at both South Carolina and Boise State. Prior to becoming one of the fast rising coaches in FBS College Football, Johnson had a prolific career as the starting Quarterback at the University of Utah, culminating in an undefeated 2008 season as Utah rose to Number Two ranking after a 31-17 dominating win over Nick Saban's Alabama in the Sugar Bowl.
