Clement Bernard "Johnnie" Johnston, Sr. (born c. 1895, missing 1933) was an American football and baseball player, coach, and college athletics administrator. He was the second head football coach at Appalachian State Teachers College—now known as Appalachian State University—located in Boone, North Carolina, serving from 1929 to 1932.[1][2] He played varsity football, basketball and baseball at Wake Forest University, earning letters in all three sports.[3] In addition to coaching at Appalachian State, he also held a coaching position at Clarkson University, for which he was trained at a coaching school at Bucknell University under Fielding H. Yost. He is the grandfather of Cathy Johnston-Forbes.[4] Johnston went missing in 1933.
