LOS ANGELES -- The LMU Sports Network will feature an Inside the Lions look at the new men's basketball coaching staff, starting with assistant coach Ray Johnson. With 762 wins, 23 league championships, eight CIF titles and a hall of fame induction under his belt, Johnson knows how to win and he is excited to bring that to the LMU program.
Johnson is the owner of more San Diego Sectional wins - 762 - than any other coach, ever. He coached 33 years at Oceanside El Camino High School and finished with a record of 762-220, winning 23 league championships while taking his teams to 16 California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) San Diego Finals. He won eight CIF titles, eight runner-up titles with 14 visits to the California State Regional Playoffs.
In addition to his legacy in San Diego, Johnson has worked with the U.S. National Program, training teams to play in South Korea while also leading the West Under-18 U.S. Olympic Team to a Silver Medal in 2000. He has also coached in the NBA Summer Pro League, served as start-up head coach of the San Diego Wildcats (an ABA pro-basketball team) while also serving as commissioner of the Magic Johnson Basketball Camps (1982-94).
