Thomas Johnson was named the head coach of the Berry women's basketball program in March of 2017. The 2017-18 season was the first with him at the helm after serving four years as the assistant coach for the men's team.
In his first season as head coach, Johnson led his team to a 13-14 overall record, as well as a 6-8 conference record, as the Vikings finished third overall in the SAA tournament. Behind Johnson, Berry also rounded out the year with two all-conference honorees and an upset victory over top-ranked Oglethorpe University on senior night.
In his four years helping coach the men's squad, Johnson helped the Vikings earn nine All-SAA and SAA Academic Honor Roll selections including a league Newcomer-of-the-Year in his first season.
Johnson came to Berry after four years (2010-13) assisting at East Tennessee State University in Johnson City, Tenn. Some of his responsibilities included player development, recruiting student- athletes, and working closely with the academic athletic director.
Johnson previously held similar positions at Samford University, Middle Tennessee State and the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He also was a successful high school head coach at programs in the Birmingham and Memphis areas.
Johnson earned his bachelor of science in physical education, a minor in Science Education and a minor in Driver Education while studying at the University of Montevallo in Montevallo, Ala.
