Head Coach Leaves Bloomington Edge Due To Health

The Bloomington Edge indoor football team and head coach John Johnson have mutually decided to part ways effective immediately, with Johnson citing health concerns.

Johnson had recently been diagnosed with diabetes.

Johnson had an 18-16 record in three years as head coach, leading the Edge to the franchise's first home playoff victory in eight years with a win over the Sioux City Bandits in June.

He began his career as an administrative assistant and special teams assistant with the Green Bay Packers, spending three seasons under head coach Lindy Infante and one under Mike Holmgren. He also served as head coach of Kentucky Wesleyan University from 1994-2002, winning two Division II coach of the year awards and setting the program record for coaching victories with 34.

The Edge's 2017 home schedule is expected to be released later this month.
