Craig Johnson (born March 3, 1960 in Rome, New York), was most recently the quarterbacks coach for the National Football League's Minnesota Vikings. Prior to the Vikings, he was the quarterbacks coach for the Tennessee Titans for seven seasons, and running backs coach for the last season. Before the Titans, Johnson had coached quarterbacks at various colleges for 10 years. As a coach in the National Football League he has developed an NFL co-MVP (Steve McNair, 2003), an NFL Rookie of the Year (Vince Young, 2006) and helped an accomplished veteran recapture his high level of play (Kerry Collins). The quarterback group has totaled five Pro Bowl invitations during his coaching tenure.
