On Monday, six-year assistant coach Frank Zamora was promoted to the top position as soccer coach at Johnson High. Zamora takes over after 11-year coach Brian Shirley announced he was stepping down from the program on Nov. 22.
Zamora takes over a Knights program which is one of the top in the state, having won the state championship in 2018 and seven region titles in the past decade.
“We are very excited to announce Frank Zamora as our new head boys soccer coach at Johnson High School,” Johnson athletics director Tony Wagner said. “Coach Zamora is a man of high character and integrity, and he has already established himself as a leader in our school and community. We look forward to watching coach Zamora and his staff continue the standard of excellence that has been set for our boys soccer program both on and off the pitch, and we are excited about supporting him in this new chapter of boys soccer at Johnson High School.”
Under Shirley, Johnson went 174-37-8 with a pair of state finalists.
