LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Former Indiana assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Kenny Johnson was introduced as a member of Rick Pitino’s coaching staff at the University of Louisville on Wednesday afternoon.
In his press conference, Johnson talked about his time at Indiana, how tough the decision to leave Bloomington was and much more:
Indiana coach Tom Crean also released a statement on Johnson, which is available after the jump.
“We appreciate all that Kenny Johnson added to the Indiana basketball program over the last two years and we value his friendship. We have loved having Kenny, Doreen, Amare, and Mekai as part of the Indiana family. I was always hopeful Kenny would not leave until he became a head coach, but I think this offer was too big to turn down. We have had a lot of history together and he leaves with our support and appreciation for a job well done.”
“We are attacking our off-season program, the players academic success and future recruiting with great energy and enthusiasm. That is our focus right now and that keeps us plenty busy.”
