FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU men's basketball coach Trent Johnson will be inducted into the University of Nevada Athletics Hall of Fame next month.
Johnson guided Nevada to its first Western Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament championships in 2003-04 as well as its first-ever appearance in the NCAA Sweet Sixteen.
Johnson has served 14 seasons as a head coach, which includes stops at Nevada (1999-2004), Stanford (2004-08), LSU (2008-12) and TCU. He has 236 career victories and was named conference coach of the year in each of the previous three conferences in which he coached (2003 WAC, 2008 Pac-10 and 2009 SEC).
Johnson, who will be entering his second year as head coach for the Horned Frogs, brought a proven track record with him to Fort Worth featuring eight postseason bids, including five NCAA Tournaments and two Sweet 16 appearances, and three conference championships. Nine of his former players have moved on to careers in the NBA, while he entered the 2012-13 season with the fifth-longest active coaching tree in the nation.
