  1. Coach Johnson
    Your presence will be sorely missed whether they were foes or friends. I thank you you personally for the time you gave at the Paramus Rec. Coaching seminars.
    I wish you well & hope to see you coaching again.

  2. Yes he will be missed.

  3. I wonder who’s gonna take over for him.

  4. Considering it is almost June, please help push for Dave Cord, the current defensive coordinator, to be the new head coach. He was the interim coach in Johnson’s absence and is highly qualified to take on the job.

  5. Thank you for your years of dedication and service.

  6. Great coach
