Maurie 'Mocha' Johnson (15 January 1907 – 30 May 2000) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Carlton and South Melbourne in the Victorian Football League.

Johnson made his debut for the Carlton Football Club in Round 5 of the 1927 season.[1] He had a falling-out with coach Frank Maher after six rounds of the 1936 season, which resulted in him leaving Carlton to join South Melbourne.[2] In 1938, Johnson captain-coached Launceston to both the NTFA and Tasmanian State Premierships.[3]
