As soon as he hung up his boots Johnson went into the coaching side of the game, taking the necessary qualifications and gaining vital experience assisting at various clubs including Everton.

In 2014, he moved back to Blackburn where he had spent his youth and early football career and in early 2015 was recruited by Blackburn Rovers to coach their under 14’s academy side.

After only a couple of months into his Rovers coaching career, Johnson was asked by new Northern Ireland under 21’s manager Jim Magilton to join his new look management team working with former Premier League footballers Kevin Horlock and Mark Crossley.

In July 2015 Johnson was appointed head coach of the Blackburn Rovers under 21’s side, working alongside former team mate John Filan.

After four years with the younger players, he was promoted to his current role as first team technical coach and head of player development.
