No. 2 reason to get excited: St. John Bosco retains Chad Johnson

Chad Johnson had a great 2013.

The St. John Bosco offensive coordinator helped guide the football team to a state championship and a mythical national title.

In the winter, he won another state title as an assistant for the Braves boys basketball team.

He’s a winner.

Johnson spent seven years at Trabuco Hills with head coach Jason Negro before joining him with the Braves. As far as development goes, he’s been a key component in developing  Josh Rosen into, arguably, the top quarterback in the nation.
