Jimmy Johnson: A Football Life

Dallas Cowboys fans don’t forget tonight the NFL Network will profile the career of former Dallas Cowboys Coach Jimmy Johnson. He was the first football coach ever to with both an NCAA Division 1A National Championship and a Super Bowl.

Johnson’s first season as head coach, the 1989 Dallas Cowboys went 1–15.  It did not take long for Coach Johnson to develop the Cowboys into a championship-quality team. Jimmy Johnson had an ability to find talent in the draft, and make savvy trades like the trade of RB Herschel Walker, which brought the Cowboys six high draft picks and a number of players from the Minnesota Vikings.

Here’s a sneak peek of the NFL Films Jimmy Johnson: A Football Life Wednesday at 8 PM/ET on the NFL Network.
