Nebraska hired Lisa Johnson to be the new women’s golf coach. She comes to Lincoln after serving as the coach at Idaho since 2007.

Johnson replaces Robin Krapfl, who announced her retirement in May following 32 seasons with the Huskers. Johnson is the fourth coach in the 45-year history of the Nebraska women’s golf program.

“I am incredibly thankful and excited for the opportunity to lead Nebraska women’s golf,” Johnson said in a press release. “It is an honor to take over for Coach Robin Krapfl. She left a terrific legacy, and I can’t wait to get to work with the strong roster we have returning and the incoming freshman.”

Johnson won Big Sky Conference championships at Idaho in 2016 and 2018. She led her team to an NCAA regional three times and was twice named the Western Athletic Conference coach of the year.

Under Johnson, one Idaho individual reached the NCAA championship, and there were six individual regional appearances. Johnson also produced five individual conference champions during her time at Idaho.

Before Idaho, Johnson coached at Boise State from 2002-07. She was also a graduate assistant at Idaho from 2000-01.

“I am extremely pleased that Lisa Johnson will be guiding the Nebraska women’s golf program,” Nebraska Athletic Director Bill Moos said in the release. “She is a proven winner and a fierce competitor who relates well with her players. I have admired Lisa’s body of work for some time and truly believe that she has what it takes to compete for championships.”
