Jerry Jones announces plans to add Jimmy Johnson to Cowboys Ring of Honor


It is finally happening.

During the pregame festivities live on FOX before the team's matchup with the Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced that former head coach Jimmy Johnson would join the ring of honor at AT&T Stadium.

The ceremony will take place during the team's Dec. 30 matchup against the Detroit Lions in what will be the Cowboys final regular season home game of the year.

Johnson, who brought two Super Bowls to the Cowboys in 1993 and 1994, finished his Dallas Cowboys career with a 44-36 record.

But over the final three seasons of his Dallas tenure, Johnson went 36-12, two NFC East titles, and winning seven playoff games, including the two Super Bowls.

Johnson would then part ways with the franchise after the Super Bowl XXVIII win, eventually getting back into coaching with the Miami Dolphins from 1996-1999.

With his induction, Johnson will become the 23rd member of the Cowboys franchise to be inducted into the ring of honor, and the second coach after Tom Landry.
