Coaching Carousel: Clemon Johnson Fired at Florida A&M

Former NFL star Kellen Winslow has made his first big move as the athletic director at Florida A&M as he'll replace basketball coach Clemon Johnson.

Spruce Derden-USA TODAY Sports

When you visit our mid-major transfer list one of the things that will standout to you are the amount of transfers for the Florida A&M Rattlers. FAMU currently has six players on our list and that number was expected to grow. FAMU's new athletic director, former NFL star Kellen Winslow, has made his first big move and is expected to replace Clemon Johnson as the Rattler's head coach.

Johnson will leave FAMU with a 32-64 mark after three seasons at the Tallahassee based school. Johnson is a former ten year NBA veteran.

Florida A&M has not had a winning season since 2006-07 when the Rattlers went to the NCAA Tournament. The Rattlers are the fourth MEAC school to make a coaching change this year joining Coppin State, Delaware State, and Maryland Eastern Shore.

This move will be Florida A&M's third coaching change in eight years. The new coach will certainly have a challenge overhauling the roster.
