Johnson explained to University of Michigan sports blog Maize N' Brew that concerns about Michigan linebackers and special teams coach Chris Partridge were the main reason for his decision decommitting from Michigan.
“I feel that me and Jim Harbaugh have a great relationship,” Johnson tells Maize n Brew. “But me and my linebacker coach(Chris Partridge) don’t and I know he had control of my playing time and me and his relationship wasn’t as tight as me and coach Harbaugh’s.So I think it was my best decision to part ways.”
He added: “(Partridge)never reached out to me. I didn’t feel like I was a priority.”
