Why did Jimmy Johnson leave the Cowboys?

After a tremendous tenure with America’s team, Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach Jimmy Johnson left the Dallas Cowboys in 1993. Johnson was a key figure in the franchise’s two Super Bowl victories in XXVII and XXVIII. However, he unexpectedly departed the Cowboys during their heyday in 1993. According to sources, Jimmy Johnson quit the Cowboys due to ongoing issues with owner and general manager Jerry Jones.

Johnson left Dallas shortly after the team’s triumph in Super Bowl XXVIII. After a season of frequent squabbles with Jones, this departure was amicable. While the two began as friends with mutual respect, their egos gradually took center stage. Jones is said to have demanded full credit for turning the Cowboys’ fortunes around, but Johnson wasn’t having it. With our NFL Mock selection Simulator, you can play as an NFL GM, make selection choices, and feel the excitement of the draft.

Despite the team’s success, there were documented disputes and disagreements over personnel choices and the organization’s power balance. As a result, after Johnson’s second Super Bowl victory in Super Bowl XXVIII, Jimmy Johnson and Jerry Jones chose to part ways, and Johnson resigned as Cowboys head coach in March 1994. Later, the Cowboys hired Barry Switzer as their new head coach. Thus, the Johnson and Jones period in Dallas came to an end.

Jimmy Johnson’s Coaching Career with the Dallas Cowboys

Jimmy Johnson is a Dallas icon, having served as America’s team’s head coach from 1989 until 1993. Johnson was pivotal in transforming the Cowboys from a league laughingstock to a perennial Super Bowl winner. Johnson had previously achieved collegiate success before joining the Cowboys. He guided multiple college teams to NCAA championships and was considered a superb coach as a result of his accomplishments.

In 1989, Jerry Jones persuaded him to join the NFL, and the rest, as they say, is history. Johnson’s tenure, which lasted from 1989 to 1993, resulted in “America’s Team” winning back-to-back Super Bowl wins in Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII; nevertheless, it ended on a bad note owing to the rivalry with Jones. People still wonder whether the Cowboys might have had an even more dominating run in the 1990s with Johnson at the helm.

He arrived in Miami with much excitement, but his term fell short of expectations. Despite inheriting one of the best offenses in the NFL, Johnson’s total winning percentage at Miami was 55.3%. He dragged on in Miami until 1999 when he stood down. Soon after, he announced his retirement from coaching.
