Langston, Okla._ Langston University will continue its winning tradition in women’s basketball with the hiring of David Johnson as the new head coach on Friday.

David Johnson is the new womens head coach at Langston University.

Johnson was hired after having spent the past two seasons as an assistant coach for Pepperdine University, which is located in Malibu, California. Johnson had previously served as an assistant at Pepperdine in 2004-05 before taking a head coaching position for six years at Aquinas High School in San Bernardino.

“We hired David Johnson because of his experience as an outstanding coach in women’s basketball, and for his ability to coach and motivate young people,” LU Athletic Director Mike Garrett said. “He should do a great job as the head coach and we expect to continue down a path of excellence with our tradition-rich women’s basketball program. We fully expect David Johnson to follow LU’s goals of promoting the student-athlete by winning on the court and in the classroom.”

In addition to his three years at Pepperdine and his six years at Aquinas, Johnson served as the top assistant on the Cal State San Bernardino’s women’s basketball team for three years. Johnson’s career began in 1991 as the head basketball coach at Washington High School, where he coached for seven years.

Johnson earned his degree in physical education and health science from Sonoma State University in 1989. He and his wife, Carol, have three daughters, Chauntyle, Bobbie and Detrice.
