Aliso Niguel girls basketball coach Brad Johnson has resigned after three seasons to join the coaching staff with the Loyola Marymount women’s basketball team, Wolverines athletic director Andrew Mashburn said.

Johnson will serve as the video coordinator for the West Coast Conference program.

“It’s very tough to leave Aliso Niguel,” he said Monday. “Aliso is a special place and has been very good to me.

“Coaching at the college level has always been something I wanted to do though. This wasn’t necessarily the timetable I imagined but it’s an incredible opportunity to be at LMU. And I know how fortunate I am to receive it. I’m excited.”

Johnson, a walk-on coach, guided Aliso Niguel to a 48-34 record, two playoffs appearances in Division 1 and one South Coast League title during his tenure.

The Wolverines went 20-9 and reached the Division 1 playoffs in his first season in 2019-20. They posted an 18-7 mark the following season, claimed the South Coast League title and lost to Rosary in the Division 1 quarterfinals.

Aliso Niguel missed the postseason last season. The team finished 10-18 after the transfer of standout Shayla Gillmer to Ontario Christian but showed progress in the second half of the season.

Johnson helped develop Gillmer, who recently signed with Washington, and All-County forward Shanna Brown among others.

Mashburn said Aliso Niguel’s opening should post on EDJOIN.org later this week.

The playoff divisions for the upcoming girls basketball season are expected to be announced by the CIF-SS in September.
