Jimmy Johnson Reportedly Back With Cowboys? Why the Newest Ring of Honor Member Could Be Headed Back to Dallas

Jimmy Johnson was put into the Cowboys' Ring of Honor this season, but is he once again a part of the team's decision-making as well?

The fact that former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson had to wait as long as he did to be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor was something that angered the fanbase.

The idea that petty differences between Jerry Jones and Johnson were the only hold-up in immortalizing the man who brought the franchise two Super Bowls and created the roster that brought them a third was unconscionable.

With that now being taken care of and Johnson forever recognized in the rafters at AT&T Stadium, it looks like bygones are now bygones, and the relationship has been mended. However, it may not stop there, as Johnson allegedly alluded to a new role within the Cowboys organization that he is taking on.

Jimmy Johnson Reportedly Back With the Cowboys

What a 180 a year can make. From being on the outside looking in to possibly being entrusted with a role within the organization. That may be the case as Johnson speaks about his relationship with Jones and the Cowboys since being added to their Ring of Honor.

“Since the Ring of Honor, I am on [Jerry Jones’] advisory board now,” Johnson said to Joe Rose on WQAM 560 AM in Miami. “Everything is hunky-dory now. I am back in the fold with the Cowboys.”

While it seems as if two old pals are back in good standing, it may be all that it is at this point.

Johnson said these comments while laughing, and there has been no official word when it comes to Johnson and his role within the organization, so it is very possible these comments were made tongue-in-cheek with some light-heartedness.

While it can’t be completely ruled out, this seems to be more in the vein of just two guys who are happy to be back on good terms with one another, and if that’s all it is, who around Cowboys nation could be upset by that?

Yet, if Johnson were to offer up his point of view on the team’s state, it would be hard for anyone in that organization to brush that off as he was the team’s last real coach that brought any sustained success.

When Johnson talks, people usually listen. And now that he and Jones are back on good terms, maybe he will be one of those people who will also listen en route to stopping the bleeding on their 28-year Super Bowl drought.
