FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU athletics director Danny Morrison has announced the hiring of Kim Johnson as associate athletics director and senior woman administrator.

Johnson comes to the Horned Frogs after working the last three years at the University of Alabama. She was the assistant director of compliance for two years before being promoted to assistant athletics director.

With the Crimson Tide, Johnson's myriad of responsibilities included compliance, eligibility and overseeing the CHAMPS/Life Skills program. She was also the department liaison to the Office of Admissions and Housing and Residential Services.

"We are extremely excited to have Kim Johnson join the TCU family," Morrison said. "She will be an excellent fit.

"Kim comes highly recommended and was very impressive on her visit. She will bring some outstanding ideas on how we can enhance the student-athlete experience at TCU. She is a wonderful addition in a key role for us."

Prior to arriving in Tuscaloosa in May 2005, Johnson worked one year as the assistant director of compliance at Tulane University. Included among her duties were managing the admissions process for 15 sports and overseeing the financial aid requirements for the NCAA.

"I am very excited to join an institution with the academic and athletic reputation of TCU," Johnson said. "I am very appreciative of this opportunity and look forward to working with the staff to help TCU maintain its success."

Johnson is a 2001 graduate of Northwestern University, where she received a degree in communications.

Upon her graduation, Johnson was hired by Northwestern as a compliance assistant. She worked three years at her alma mater before heading to Tulane.

Johnson received a Master's of Science degree in human environmental science with a sport management emphasis from Alabama in December 2007.
