The San Antonio Talons announced today the signing of a two year contract extension with Head Coach Lee Johnson. The announcement of an agreement on the contract extension with Johnson had been expected after a successful inaugural season with the Talons. In his first year as a head coach in 2012, Johnson posted a 14-4 record and Central Division title.
Talons Executive Vice President Keith Recine is pleased with the signing of a contract extension with Head Coach Lee Johnson. “The ability to secure Coach Johnson through the 2014 season means that our franchise will have stability on the field and will give us a significant advantage during free agency as we seek to sign players to our roster for the 2013 season,” said Recine.
Talons owner David Lynd is also excited about the direction the 2013 team is headed. “The Talons are pleased that we are able to bring back Lee Johnson as head coach for our team.
Lee is a tremendous leader and pushed our guys to play at a high level all year. Coach Johnson established a new program and set a win record for a first year team, which earned him a two year contract from us,” said Lynd.
Coach Johnson is entering his second season as the San Antonio Talons head coach. Johnson began his coaching career in the Canadian Football League in 1997. During his career, he has gained coaching experience with the Denver Broncos, Carolina Cobras, Colorado Crush and Orlando Predators. Johnson is excited and ready for an explosive 2013 season with the San Antonio Talons.
The San Antonio Talons are entering into their second season in the Arena Football League (AFL). The team was moved to San Antonio from Tulsa, OK in 2012 and won the AFL’s Central Division title, as well as hosted their first AFL playoff game in the 2012 season.
