Bill Johnson '10 begins his third year as an assistant coach, after spending five seasons as a member of the MIT men's basketball team. Johnson, a 6'8" guard/forward, spent the past two off-seasons playing professionally overseas in Latin America, Europe, and Australia.

Johnson joined the Cardinal and Gray staff in 2010 fresh off one of the most successful careers in MIT history. The two-time captain, who was part of three 20-win seasons, finished his career as the all-time wins leader in Engineer history, the 23rd player to reach the 1,000-point milestone, and finished in the top 10 in three-point percentage, free-throw percentage, and blocked shots. Johnson was two-time NEWMAC Player of the Week, a NEWMAC All-Conference selection, and earned a spot in the NEBCA Division III All-Star Game in 2010.
