SU PROMOTES JOHNSON

Syracuse announced that receivers coach Michael Johnson will stay with the Orange as the team's co-Offensive Coordinator and tight ends coach.

"Mike Johnson has been a coordinator before and worked with several teams in the NFL. Having his mind here is great," SU head coach Fran Brown said. "He has the opportunity to coach one of the best players on our entire team in Oronde Gadsden II and we have a freshman coming in who I think is going to be another really, really good football player, in Jamie Tremble. I'm excited he decided to stay and I want people to understand and know that it's important that he's here on our staff. We have like three coordinators on offense, so that helps a lot."

In Johnson's first season with SU, the team's passing efficiency improved from 108th in the FBS to 45th. SU also improved in the Atlantic Coast Conference in total offense, passing offense and red zone offense.

Johnson previously coached at Florida Atlantic as Co-Offensive Coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
