Aledo girls basketball coach Rusty Johnson, who led his program to the Class 4A state tournament last month, has verbally agreed to become the next head coach of the Northwest girls program, sources have told the Times-Register.The move is contingent upon the NISD school board’s approval. The board meets Monday. A message left for Johnson was not returned. Northwest ISD athletic director Susan Elza could not be reached for comment. Sources said the move is more for family reasons. Johnson replaces Wayne Parker, who resigned in February.Johnson, who took the girls position after serving as an assistant in the boys program, has enjoyed a very successful run at Aledo. In four seasons, he’s compiled a 112-23 record along with three district championships. He has a career district record of 52-4.Aledo played in the 4A state semifinals last month before falling to Dallas Lincoln, 64-44. The squad finished 30-8.This would be another landmark hire for Elza. She hired Bill Patterson away from Garland Naaman Forest to run the football program. Patterson has taken Northwest to the playoffs in two of his four seasons. The 8-3 mark in 2012 was the best Northwest has ever enjoyed at the Class 5A level.Elza also hired Mike Hatch to run the boys basketball program. Hatch has taken Northwest to the playoffs in four of his five seasons and just missed a fifth after dropping a play-in game three years ago. Baseball coach Stan Gideon is in his fifth season.Without question, Johnson faces a major rebuilding project with the girls basketball program. It has produced single-digit winning seasons in each of the past two seasons. The 2012-2013 team finished 2-28.In fact, in the four previous seasons Northwest has compiled overall records of 5-23, 11-20 and 3-26. Northwest has won one district game in the last two seasons and hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2009.
