Steve Johnson


Steve Johnson has achieved nearly everything as a player and now the former Cat and Giant puts his expertise to the test as an assistant coach at the Sydney Swans.

Recruited with Pick 21 in the 2001 National Draft, Johnson managed 253 games in the blue and white hoops at Kardinia Park and collected many honours in the process.

Johnson became a three-time premiership player (2007, 2009, 2011), a Norm Smith medallist (2007) and a three-time All Australian (2007, 2008, 2010) over his 13 seasons with Geelong.

He led the Cats' goal-kicking for two seasons (2008, 2010), his renowned skill and craftiness in front of goal was where his strengths lay and it's at the Sydney Swans where he'll be applying this craft now in a coaching capacity.

After his time at Geelong, Johnson made the move to Greater Western Sydney where his experience was highly valued across two seasons before coming on board with cross-town rivals as one of four assistants to senior coach John Longmire.

He joins John Blakey, Brett Kirk, Rhyce Shaw and Dean Cox as part of a reshuffled coaching group.
