Kwanza Johnson is set to be announced as a TCU men’s basketball assistant coach, according to two sources inside the athletic department.

Johnson has been an assistant at Georgia the last three seasons, working under TCU coach Trent Johnson’s former assistant Mark Fox. Before that he coached at Nevada from 2006-09. He grew up in Oklahoma City and attended Rose State College in Midwest City, Okla., before transferring to and graduating from Tulsa. His first job was an administrative assistant at Tulsa from 1997-99 for coach Bill Self, who’s now at Kansas.

Trent Johnson declined to comment, but Kwanza Johnson is currently being vetted by TCU before the announcement is made, according to sources.

Kwanza Johnson replaces Pooh Williamson, who took an assistant job at Texas Tech.
