Georgia Bulldogs assistant coach Kwanza Johnson is leaving the program to take the same position at TCU, UGA announced this morning.
Johnson coaches under Mark Fox for three seasons at Nevada and each season since Fox became the head coach at Georgia in April 2009.
TCU is coached by Trent Johnson, who is close friends with Mark Fox.
“Kwanza is like family to me,” Fox said in a statement. “He’s one of my best friends, not only in the coaching business but in life. He’s done a great job for us the past seven years, both at Nevada and here at Georgia, so his contributions to our staff will be missed. We certainly wish him and his family the very best.”
The move to TCU will put Johnson a little closer to home. He hails from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and played at Tulsa under then head coach Tubby Smith.
News broke of Kwanza Johnson possibly leaving for TCU almost a month ago, so it’s expected that Mark Fox will name a new assistant very soon.
