Former letterman Justin Johnson returns to the program in 2012 as offensive quality control. In that new role, he will assist all offensive coaches with administrative duties.
Johnson is no stranger to Cougar fans, competing as a member of the team from 2008 to 2011. As a senior, Johnson helped lead the Cougars to a record-setting 13-1 overall mark and a dominating win against No. 23 Penn State during the TicketCity Bowl on Jan. 2.
The Richardson, Texas, native finished second on the team with 1,229 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns and added 87 receptions on the way to earning All-Conference USA First-Team accolades.
Johnson was a versatile student-athlete during his collegiate playing days with the Cougars, competing on special teams and as a running back at various times. During his career, he competed in three bowl games and two Conference USA Championship Games.
He graduated from UH in the spring of 2012 with a bachelor's degree in kinesiology-sports administration. Johnson is single and lives in Houston.
