Jimmy Johnson, the man who led the Dallas Cowboys to back-to-back Super Bowl victories in the early 90s, says owner and general manager Jerry Jones has told him he will be placed in the Ring of Honor, according to the Dallas Morning News. It’s just a matter of when.
Johnson’s time with the Cowboys came to an abrupt end in early 1994, shortly after the team’s second championship, because he and Jones’ relationship had turned sour. There’s been no public burying of the hatchet in the years since, but Johnson says he and Jerry are fine nowadays.
If he was put in the Ring of Honor, Johnson would be the second head coach to earn the honor and the third non-player. Legendary head coach Tom Landry was inducted in 1993 and longtime front office member Tex Schramm went in back in 2003.
