Jerry Jones showed a highly emotional side on Wednesday when meeting the media.
The Dallas Cowboys owner was discussing Jimmy Johnson leaving his role as coach years ago and how the owner feels he “bleeped” up the situation up. 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 Super Bowl XXVII in 1992 and Super Bowl XXVIII in 1993. Jones would hire Switzer and the franchise won Super Bowl XXX two seasons after Johnson’s departure.
