Johnston’s patience during TCU coaching change pays off big

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Quentin Johnston came to TCU because of its coaching stability. Now he’s playing in the biggest football game of his career because of a coaching change. Johnston embraced first-year coach Sonny Dykes and is one of many reasons the Horned Frogs have flourished this season with a 12-1 record. They’ll face Michigan on Saturday in the College Football Playoff semifinals at the Fiesta Bowl. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound Johnston is expected to be a coveted prize in this spring’s NFL draft. His size, speed and strong hands have some evaluators saying he’ll be the first receiver drafted and a potential top 10 pick.
