Johnnie Cole will enter his first year as the Offensive Coordinator and Quarterbacks Coach. Before coming to FSCC, Cole was the head coach at Texas Southern University for three years. At TSU, Cole won the program’s first conference championship in school history.
This will also be Coach Cole and Coach Horton’s second journey together after working 20 years ago at Southwestern College in Winfield, KS.

During his leadership as head coach, he has the largest win/loss record turn-around in the school’s history. He is also responsible for the first back to back winning seasons in Lane’s history (2006-2007 & 2007-2008).
Coach Cole is a native of Dayton, Ohio. He earned a bachelor’s degree in Civil Engineering and he just received his Master’s degree in Education from Texas Southern University where he also played Quarterback. Coach Cole has three children, two daughters Keosha, Kennedy, and one son Johnnie Jr.
