Louisville Reportedly Looking At Indiana Assistant Kenny Johnson

Gregory Shamus

Talk has been mostly quiet on the assistant coaching vacancy front over the past two weeks, but a report from The Indianapolis Star on Wednesday has changed that.

According to the Star, both Louisville and Maryland have expressed interest in adding Indiana assistant Kenny Johnson to their staffs. Johnson is a graduate of the University of Maryland.

Indiana, where Johnson has coached for the last two seasons, would commit extra resources to matching a rival offer, according to a source close to the program. The source did not indicate whether there was any limit to the added financial commitment Indiana would make to keep Johnson.

It's not clear at the moment whether any school has extended an official offer to Johnson, or whether Johnson has formally interviewed anywhere.

Johnson's salary at Indiana comes to approximately $200,000 per year, according to a source. He joined Indiana from Towson in April 2012.

The Star isn't the only one reporting that Johnson is a hot commodity.

Johnson has earned a reputation for being one of the better recruiters in college basketball, and has an especially large presence in the mid-Atlantic and New England areas. Before coming to Indiana, he spent time as an AAU coach in Washington D.C.
