Larry Johnson finished his 12th season as Penn State Brandywine women's basketball coach in 2017-18.

During his more than a decade on the Brandywine bench, Johnson has helped the Lions reach new heights, guiding the team to the first five USCAA Tournament berths in program history and its first-ever national tournament victory during the 2009-10 season. The Lions claimed their third USCAA Tournament triumph in 2017-18 after winning the fourth PSUAC championship during Johnson's tenure, while also matching a single-season, program record with 22 wins.

A six-time conference coach of the year, Johnson has built Brandywine into a perennial contender in the PSUAC as his teams claimed the conference’s South Division title nine times during his tenure and reached the league championship game seven times, including PSUAC crowns in 2017-18, 2016-17, 2010-11 and 2006-07.

A winner of 225 games during his career, Johnson’s student-athletes have also produced in the classroom, earning 16 USCAA National Academic awards.

Johnson resides in Media, Pa., with his wife, Jessica, and Brandywine’s No. 1 fans, daughter, Makayla, and son, Larry Jr.
