Brian Johnson enters his third season with the Philadelphia Eagles. He was promoted to offensive coordinator following the 2022 campaign, when the Eagles finished 14-3 en route to a Super Bowl LVII appearance.
Prior to being named offensive coordinator, Johnson coached Philadelphia's quarterbacks from 2021-22. In that capacity, he played a crucial role in the development of Jalen Hurts, who posted the second-highest winning percentage (.733, 22-8) among NFL quarterbacks in that span, trailing only Patrick Mahomes (.765, 26-8). During Johnson's time as the Eagles' quarterbacks coach, Hurts finished second in Associated Press NFL MVP voting and received his first career All-Pro and Pro Bowl accolades.
In 2022, Johnson mentored Hurts to one of the most outstanding seasons in franchise history. Leading Philadelphia to Super Bowl LVII, Hurts became the second-youngest quarterback in league history to win 14 regular-season games, behind Dan Marino in 1984 (23 years old). He also ranked second in the NFL in touchdown-to-interception ratio (3.67), third in passer rating (101.5), yards per attempt (8.0) and total yards per game (297.4), and fourth in total touchdowns (35, tied Randall Cunningham's franchise record set in 1990). Additionally, Hurts had the second-most rushing touchdowns (13) ever by a quarterback, trailing only Cam Newton in 2011 (14).
In his first full year as a starter in 2021, Hurts became just the eighth quarterback in league history to record 3,000 passing yards (3,144) and 750 rushing yards (784) in a season. The youngest Eagles quarterback to start a playoff game also combined for 26 total touchdowns.
From 2018-20, Johnson enjoyed a highly successful three-year stint at Florida. As the offensive coordinator, Johnson led the Gators to the most prolific passing offense (387.6 ypg) in the FBS while ranking seventh in total offense (509.8 ypg) and eighth in scoring offense (39.8 ppg).
