W. Basketball: Boderick Johnson

Boderick Johnson began his fourth season at Palm Beach Atlantic University as the full-time assistant women's basketball coach in 2015-16.

Coach Johnson was hired to assist new PBA head coach Carlos Palacio who was named the program's head coach on July 6th, 2012.

Coach Johnson comes to PBA following an eight-year stint as an assistant high school basketball coach at P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School in Gainesville, Florida. During his tenure at P.K. Yonge, the varsity girls basketball program was considered an elite program throughout the state in their classification (2a & 3a). They reached the state final four on six different occasions (2006 – 2010, 2012). They finished as State Runner-Up in 2009 before winning the State Championship in 2010 & 2012. In 2012, P.K. Yonge was the first school in the area ever to produce a McDonalds All American (Niya Johnson) for either boys or girls.

Beyond his experience at the high school level, Coach Johnson had been active in the elite travel ball circuit as a coach within the Essence program for seven years. The Essence program is widely considered one of the top travel ball programs in the nation. It was during this time that he would coach and develop numerous players who would go on to play at all levels of competition from the Division I, II, and junior college levels. Some of his former players have gone on to capture a National Championship at the University of Connecticut. He has also coached several players who have made their way to the WNBA and/or currently playing professionally overseas.

Perhaps the strongest player he has ever coached came from his own family as his daughter, Niya, was named a McDonalds and Parade All-American and is now enrolled and competing at Baylor University, the 2012 NCAA Division I National Champions.

Coach Johnson has been involved in all levels of skills development with players ranging from elementary-aged kids to the collegiate ranks. He has worked various college camps including in-state powers University of Florida and Florida State University. He has worked the Boo Williams Jr. Phenom Camps which identifies some of the top high school players in the nation. Coach Johnson has been able to assist and/or co-train at times with nationally-known basketball skill trainers (Gannon Baker, Dee Brown, Mano Watson, Micah Lancaster, and Nadine Domond) which have allowed him to use this experience to enhance the skill set of many players.

Johnson graduated from Florida A&M University where he earned his bachelor's degree in criminal justice.

Coach Johnson and his wife, Jewell, have three daughters, Jocelynn, Niya and Shayla.
