Darren Johnson has been named head football coach at Campbell High, the school will announce Friday.

Johnson, a Kahuku alumnus with 10 years of head-coaching experience, succeeds Amosa Amosa, who was not retained after nine seasons, posting a 56-41 record.

Johnson was head coach at Kailua from 1996 to 2003 and at Kaimuki from 2007 to 2008. He has compiled a 74-36-1 record in his 10 seasons as a head coach. He led Kaimuki to the 2007 OIA White (now Division II) championship and Kailua to a co-championship in 2001, when it shared it with Kahuku. There were co-champions that year because regular-season games were postponed during the week of 9/11. That left the league one weekend shy of completing its postseason.

Johnson also was Kahuku boys basketball coach, leading the Red Raiders to an OIA title in 2012.

More to come.
