In guiding the sport of crew on the Hilltop, Johnson has overseen significant growth of the program, strengthening the foundation for even greater success in the future. He has helped to secure over $18 million in financial support over the past 15 years. Johnson was the only full-time coach in 1990 when he returned to Georgetown. Today, four full-time coaches and four part-time coaches oversee four varsity programs and four novice teams. Johnson has served as the leading proponent for a new boathouse, a goal that will soon be achieved. The Hoya crews have all upgraded their competitive level from Dad Vail to Eastern Sprint competition.
Johnson's rowers earned gold for three straight years at the Champion Regatta in the mid-1990's. Several have earned post-collegiate accolades on a national level. His coaching achievements at Yale include the 1982 national championship, several Eastern Sprint titles, and two junior varsity titles at the Henley Royal Regatta. He was named Eastern Coach of the Year in 1982.
Johnson began his rowing career under the legendary Charlie Butt at Washington-Lee High School and continued to row at Syracuse University and Potomac Boat Club. Johnson earned a silver medal in the pairs at the 1968 Olympics and gold medals at the 1967 and 1969 European championships. He served as an assistant U.S. Olympic rowing coach in 1972.
