Darren Johnson will be the new football coach at Campbell, he confirmed Friday afternoon.
Johnson was expected to be announced as the coach today on campus, when he will meet with the Sabers players.
Johnson, who grew up on the North Shore and still lives in Punaluu, is looking forward to the new challenge, the source said. He is a former Kailua head coach and an assistant at Kahuku and Kapolei.
A source added that Johnson is looking at this as a last go ’round of sorts as a head coach.
He most recently was a coach for the Laie Red Raiders of the Big Boyz program.
Johnson takes over the post from Amosa Amosa, who was not re-signed after last season.
Johnson’s son, Kawehena Johnson, is a former defensive player of the year for Kahuku as a defensive back.
