Earlier this morning, I mentioned that NJCAA DII Fayetteville Tech CC (NC) has hired Brian Hurd as their Inaugural head men’s basketball coach (Daily Dirt – 3/29/26).

I can now confirm that another North Carolina Junior College has made a hiring…

Johnston Community College (Smithfield, NC) is also starting a basketball program, and they have named Jason Johnson as their men’s basketball coach.  He has spent the past seven seasons as an assistant at DIII Methodist University (NC).  He served as a HS coach before that.

JCC is slated to begin play during the 2016-17 season, and expected to compete in NJCAA Region 10.

The official announcement is expected shortly.
