Princeton's Sydney Johnson, the Franklin C. Cappon-Edward G. Green '40 head coach of men's basketball, has been named as the Ivy League Coach of the Year by CollegeInsider.com.

Johnson guided the Tigers to a five-game improvement in Ivy League play from his first season, finishing in second place with an 8-6 record after a three-way tie for sixth with a 3-11 mark in 2008. The eight Ivy wins were Princeton's most since 2006.

Overall, the Tigers improved from 6-23 in 2007-08 to 13-14 this season, Princeton's most overall wins since 2005. Princeton defeated every Ivy League opponent at least once and was still very much a part of the race for the Ivy League title into the last weekend.

The team rallied from a 2-8 start with a seven-game winning streak that included a 4-0 Ivy League start with a win over defending league champion Cornell.

The Ivy League office does not sponsor a Coach of the Year award in any sport, naming only a Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year in men's basketball.
