NFL fans received a hit right to the feels on Saturday night when longtime Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Bill Cowher received news he'd be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame during the CBS broadcast. On Sunday, FOX unveiled a similar surprise to ex-Dallas Cowboys head coach and current analyst Jimmy Johnson. Standing by his colleagues, Hall of Fame president C. David Baker emerged from the shadows to tell Johnson that he'll finally be enshrined in Canton.
How can you not feel unbridled joy for Johnson, a man who broke out in tears after finding out he will forever be immortalized in football history.
Even Johnson's former quarterback in Troy Aikman couldn't hold back the tears.
In his nine-year coaching career with the Cowboys and Miami Dolphins, Johnson accumulated an 80-64 record and won two Super Bowls (XXVII and XXVIII).
Johnson's colleagues in Michael Strahan, Howie Long, Terry Bradshaw and Tony Gonzalez have long teased the former Cowboy for being the only member of the analyst table to not own a gold jacket.
But this summer, Jimmy Johnson will officially be a Pro Football Hall of Famer.
