Johnson expected to join Keatts staff

Kevin Keatts’ first assistant coaching hire will be James Johnson, per Joe Giglio at the N&O. Johnson spent the last two years as Miami’s director of basketball operations and prior to that spent two unsuccessful seasons as Virginia Tech’s head coach.

Keatts and Johnson were teammates at Ferrum College

It’s unclear what role Johnson will be tasked with in Raleigh, but getting a guy with high-major head coaching experience is a bonus. He also spent several years as an assistant for Seth Greenberg while he was at VT.
