As a Cowboys fan, it’s good to hear Jerry Jones finally take responsibility for something that was clearly his fault.
In a press conference early Wednesday afternoon, Jerry Jones was discussing Jimmy Johnson’s exit from his role as head coach years ago and how Jerry feels he f**ked up the situation.
Jones recalled telling Barry Switzer how Johnson was gone and they were about to talk about the college football legend at Oklahoma becoming head coach of America’s team.
Switzer, as Jones tells the story, wanted nothing but to put the owner and his coach on the couch to figure things out.
Johnson was head coach of the Cowboys from 1989-93 winning three Super Bowls until he departed after feeling like Jerry wouldn’t let him do his job.
Jones then hired former Oklahoma Head Coach Barry Switzer who rode off Johnson’s coattail and won Super Bowl XXX two seasons after Johnson’s departure.
Johnson will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in August.
