Brought in by newly-promoted head coach Frank Spaziani, the team regressed each season Johnson was there, starting at 8-5 in 2009 down to 4-8 in 2011. After the 2011 season, Johnson entered the NFL.

Miami Dolphins

In 2012 Johnson was hired by the Miami Dolphins as their offensive assistant coach. The following season he was promoted to assistant quarterbacks coach, as Zac Taylor was promoted to quarterbacks coach. Building off a successful 2012 campaign in which rookie-quarterback Ryan Tannehill set numerous franchise records for rookie quarterbacks, Tannehill would continue to set various franchise records over the next few seasons. Despite the growth Tannehill experienced under Taylor's and Johnson's coaching, the team was stalled with at most eight wins during his four years with the team.
