Tyler Johnson joined the McLennan Baseball staff as an assistant coach in 2018. In his first season with the Highlanders, he helped lead the squad to a second-place finish in the North Texas Junior College Athletic Conference and the Region V Tournament.

Johnson came to McLennan from Blinn College where he served as an assistant coach for a year. At Blinn, Johnson worked with catchers, outfielders and hitters while coaching first base on game days. Under his guidance, Bucanneers catcher Brandon Ashly was named to the 2018 NJCAA Division I Gold Glove Team with a .997 fielding percentage. Johnson spent the 2017 season as an intern for player development in the Texas Rangers organization. He was assigned to the Hickory (North Carolina) Crawdads and spent some time as a bullpen catcher in addition to his intern duties. His previous coaching experience includes summer baseball camps at the University of Texas at Austin and three years as a summer coach for the Frozen Ropes organization in McKinney. While with the Frozen Ropes, Johnson helped lead teams to the Connie Mack World Series.

As a player, Johnson began his collegiate career at Navarro College where he was a two-time academic all-conference selection, a team captain and helped lead the Bulldogs to a conference championship in 2015. He transferred to Concordia University and earned academic all-conference honors both seasons with the Tornados. He was named to the President's List at Navarro and was on the Dean's List for four semesters at Concordia.

Johnson earned an associate degree from Navarro in 2015, graduating magna cum laude. He received a bachelor's degree in business administration/management from Concordia in 2017, graduating summa cum laude. He and his wife Bailey were married on New Year’s Day 2019.
