LOS ANGELES — Longtime FOX Sports analyst and legendary football coach Jimmy Johnson got the surprise of his life Sunday during halftime of the FOX broadcast of Seahawks at Packers.
Johnson served as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys for five seasons including back-to-back Super Bowl victories in 1992 and 1993.
After five more seasons with the Miami Dolphins, Johnson became a member of the FOX NFL Sunday broadcast team where he’s been a staple of the show’s football coverage for two decades.
Sunday, Johnson’s long career in football culminated in a surprise during the FOX broadcast:
The surprise left an emotional Johnson at a loss for words as his broadcast partners celebrated him including his former quarterback with the Cowboys Troy Aikman who could be seen with tears in his eyes looking on from Lambeau Field in Green Bay.
Aikman spoke about Johnson’s upcoming induction on Sunday’s broadcast:
Johnson coached at Oklahoma State from 1979 to 1983 before serving as Miami Hurricanes head coach for five seasons that included winning the 1987 National Championship.
Sunday he joined former Pittsburgh Steelers head coach and CBS broadcaster Bill Cowher as one of the two coaches to be selected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2020.
