Coach Todd Johnson

SARASOTA, June 26, 2017 – This morning, Coach Todd Johnson shared that he will be accepting a new career position in the Sarasota area outside of education.  

Riverview High School is thrilled for Coach Johnson; however, he will certainly be missed. Johnson served as RHS head football coach for six years. His work ethic, energy, enthusiasm and passion for the program has served the Riverview athletic community well. Moreover, his talent in the classroom will be hard to replace.

At this time, Riverview High School has named Offensive Coordinator Josh Smithers, as Interim Head Coach. Smithers has worked with the RHS program for the past two years and previously served as head football coach of Cardinal Mooney for eight years. He will remain interim head coach until the school works through the hiring process for naming a permanent replacement. In the meantime, Riverview is extremely fortunate to have Coach Smithers continue the tradition of excellence the program has established during the past six years under the leadership of Coach Johnson.

Riverview High School is located at 1 Ram Way, Sarasota.
