“We’re excited to have Coach Johns join our staff,” Kingsbury said in a release. “He has a tremendous record as one of the top offensive minds in college football, and I know he will be a great resource for our staff and players. We’d like to welcome him, his wife Krista and his three sons to Lubbock.”
Johns spent one season as the offensive coordinator at Western Michigan. Prior to that, he spent six seasons as the offensive coordinator and receivers coach at Indiana under then-head coach Kevin Wilson. In his second season in that position, the Hoosiers were No. 14 in the nation in total offense averaging more than 500 yards per game.
He replaces Eric Morris, who left in December to become the next head coach at The University of the Incarnate Word in San Antonio.
“It’s a privilege to join the staff Coach Kingsbury has assembled,” Johns said in a release. “Texas Tech has long been known as one of the top offenses in the country, and it’s an honor to work alongside Coach Kingsbury in continuing that tradition. I’m fortunate for the opportunity and can’t wait to get started.”
