Chris Johnson's roles on head coach Jeff Mittie's staff include academic mentoring, recruiting evaluation, gameplan preparation and player development.

Johnson has made his presence known for the Frogs during his first two years on campus on the recruiting trail, helping the Frogs land two four-star rated recruits in 2012-13 as well as two ESPNU 100 signees. Under Johnson's watch, Latricia Lovings wrapped-up play third overall in the NCAA in blocked shots per game during the 2012-13 campaign, averaging 3.63 blocks per contest, while becoming just one of four players in the Big 12 to rank in the top-10 in rebounding and in the top-5 in blocked shots.

In 2011-12, he helped Latricia Lovings end the year ranked No. 25 in the NCAA in blocked shots per game. Lovings' also ranked No. 1 in the MW in blocks, wrapping-up play with a team-leading 68 blocks, which ranks fifth all-time in program history for blocked shots in a single-season. Under Johnson's watch, TCU closed the year ranking No. 9 in the NCAA in blocked shots per game.

Johnson came to TCU following a one-year stint as head girls basketball coach at Lutheran High School-North in Houston. Johnson guided the Lady Lions to 20 victories on the year and a second round playoff appearance.

Johnson, who spent three successful years as an assistant coach at Westside High School, has been a mainstay in club basketball in the Houston area. Since 2008, Johnson has been both the executive director and head coach of Cyfair Premier Basketball, which is widely considered one of the top AAU programs in the state of Texas. During his time as director and coach, Johnson had numerous players ranked in the top 100 in the country, with nearly every player going on to play women's basketball at the collegiate level.

The Houston native, who earned a bachelor's degree in business and Spanish from Houston Baptist in 2003, was a two-time All-America honoree at HBU, while leading the Huskies to consecutive Red River Conference Championships and back-to-back trips to the NAIA National Tournament.
