Trouble with bbcode

I’m trying to make a clickable link for users who are tagged. For example, in Twitter a post with “I’m with @john today!” would have “@john” as a clickable link that takes you to John’s profile.

When I put in my link with :find and replace to find the tagged username “@exampleUsername”-

But instead of using the bbcode to replace my link with my intended display word “bbcodeTrouble”, it wraps around my link with more [url]'s.

my intended outcome should look like this…

Any ideas?
