Rob Johnson was named the Assistant Women's Basketball Coach at UMass Dartmouth prior to the 2008-09 season. A former athlete with substantial collegiate coaching experience, Rob hopes to continue his history of success at UMD as the team embarks on its' 08-09 campaign. Formerly the full-time Assistant Women's Basketball Coach at Regis College, he helped the team earn a spot in The Commonwealth Coast Conference (TCCC) Tournament for the first time in over a decade with a record of 18-8. Regis had posted a 5-20 mark in the previous season. Rob was instrumental in the turnaround, providing his expertise in the areas of team defense, scouting and game preparation, and team motivation.
Prior to his time at Regis, Rob worked with the Griswold High School (CT) Boy's Varsity and Junior Varsity basketball teams. He has also coached Boy's and Girl's recreational basketball, baseball and football.
