GV Vikings
Assistant Coach
5th Season
Concordia University - St. Paul (Minn.)

Travis Johansen is in his fifth season at Grand View and serves as the Co-Defensive Coordinator and secondary coach for the Vikings.  In three seasons at Grand View, the defense has ranked nationally in a number of categories.  In 2015, the Viking defense was first in the nation in both  total defense per game (237.5) and scoring defense per game (13.9) and second in the NAIA in both pass defense efficiency (90.4) and rushing defense per game (91.3). Grand View was also top ten in the country in pass defense per game (4th-146.2), opponent fourth down conversions (4th - 29.4), total sacks (7th - 35.5), and opponent first downs (9th - 178)

Prior to Grand View, Johansen spent six years on staff at NCAA II Concordia University-St. Paul (Minn.) as the defensive coordinator, secondary coach, special teams coordinator and was responsible for the oversight of the team’s academics.

At Concordia, Johansen was part of the only two conference championship teams and the only two post season berths in school history. He coached 15+ all-conference selections, the first AFCA All-American in school history, the first conference newcomer of the year, and five national players of the week.  The 2010 season marked a successful campaign for the defense and specifically the secondary.  The pass defense was 14th in the nation, averaging 156.4 yards allowed per game, while the coverage was solid enough to help the defensive front tally 39.0 sacks, 12th most in Division II.  The defense also held opponents to 18.1 points per game, ranking 20th in the nation, while the total defense (311.3 ypg, 34th) and tackles for loss (7.6 tfl pg, 33rd) were also national players. These categories were improved in 2011 where the Golden Bear defense led the Northern Sun in sacks (2.1 per game) and tackles for loss (8.6 pg) ranking 15th in the country.

Johansen recruited the first ever NFL Draft selection (Zach Moore-New England Patriots / 6th- 198 pick overall) in the history of Concordia-St. Paul, as well as Cincinnati Bengals kicker Tom Obarski.

In his playing career, Johansen was a four-year starter at Concordia-St. Paul with a 33-13 career record and 24-7 career record in NSIC conference play.  The 2005 captain and First Team All-NSIC selection finished his career with 221 tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, and 5.0 sacks.

Johansen completed his undergraduate degree in kinesiology and sport management at Concordia in 2007.  He resides in Ankeny with his wife, Natalie.
