Assistant Basketball Coach
Cody Johnson was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and raised in Mustang, Oklahoma. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2017 with a B.S. in Multidisciplinary Studies.
Before arriving at DME, he spent a season as the head coach for the 7th grade boys’ middle school team at Casady Schools in Oklahoma City. Also, he served as an assistant coach on the high school boys’ varsity and junior varsity teams.
Prior to his first coaching position, Cody served as a student manager for two seasons under Lon Kruger at the University of Oklahoma. His first season with OU ended with a trip to the Final Four. After his first season, he got the privilege to help workout Buddy Hield, #6 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, as he prepared for the draft. This gave him the opportunity to spend a week working alongside Tim Grover, the trainer of Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.
But it all started for him at Division II, Northwestern Oklahoma State University, where he began his journey to becoming a coach as he worked there as a student manager for two seasons under Coach Andrew Brown.
