MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Former Auburn quarterback Jeremy Johnson is returning to Carver High School, his alma mater, where he'll coach the quarterbacks in the upcoming season.

“Words can’t describe how I feel and how bless I am to have this opportunity to be able to coach somewhere where all my dreams came true!!! War Eagle," Johnson said.

The Carver Wolverines made the announcement official with a tweet Wednesday afternoon. 

That tweet was later followed up by another from Carver coach Willie Spear. 

Johnson was named Alabama Mr. Football in 2012 before heading to the Plains.

In 2015, Johnson became the Tigers' starting quarterback, following Nick Marshall and Cam Newton with big shoes to fill and a lot of hype coming out of high school.

He played in 30 career games with the Tigers, including a 7-4 mark as the starting quarterback.
