Johnson resigned as G-C boys hoops coach in April




GREENFIELD — Former Greenfield-Central boys basketball coach Josh Johnson was hired by Morristown High School as its new athletic director Thursday evening during a Shelby Eastern Schools special board meeting.

Johnson, who resigned as the Cougars’ coach in April after a 27-80 record in five seasons, will also be an assistant principal at Morristown High School.

“It’s an outstanding fit,” remarked Johnson, who was replaced by Michael Lewis on the G-C bench. “I get the best of both worlds. I get the athletic side – I coached varsity basketball for 12 years – so I get my athletic fix. That’s still a big part of my life. On the other hand, I’m also an assistant principal so I get the academic side. I enjoy teaching. I get both sides of it, and that’s the part that intrigued me the most about this post.”
