Dallas Cowboys Owner, President and General Manager Jerry Jones announced the induction of Jimmy Johnson to the club’s storied Ring of Honor on Sunday. Johnson will become the 24th Dallas Cowboy to be enshrined in the Ring of Honor in a celebration at halftime of the Dec. 30 game at AT&T Stadium against Detroit.
Johnson, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Aug. 7, 2021, was named the first Cowboys head coach under then new owner Jerry Jones in 1989.
In five seasons with the Cowboys, Johnson guided the team to two Super Bowl championships.
In his first season in Dallas, Johnson’s team finished 1-15, then 7-9 in 1990 before making a return to the playoffs with an 11-5 finish in 1991.
Johnson was named NFL Coach of the Year by the Associated Pres following the 1990 season. Johnson’s 1992 team finished with a franchise-record 13 wins en route to the NFC Conference Championship and subsequent return to the Super Bowl, capping the season with a 52-17 win over the Bills in Super Bowl XXVII.
The following season, Dallas returned to the Super Bowl, after ending the year with a 12-4 record, earning a rematch with the Bills in Super Bowl XXVIII. Dallas won it’s fourth championship, handing Buffalo a 30-13 loss.
