SALT LAKE CITY — Wedding bells will soon be ringing for Utah offensive coordinator Brian Johnson. The 25-year-old will wed longtime girlfriend Ashley Chapman on July 7.

"I'm excited about it. It'll be fun," Johnson said. "I'm really, really looking forward to it."

Johnson and Chapman met while attending school at Utah.

"She's been huge throughout just keeping me humble and keeping me focused the last six years," Johnson said. "I really don't know where I would be without her. She's an absolutely great woman and I'm really excited to start a new chapter in my life."

Although Johnson is from the Houston area, the wedding will take place in Utah.

"She has a bunch of her family here and we'll bring the whole Texas crew up," Johnson said. "It'll be a nice little shin-dig."
