Jimmy Johnson (Coach) Net Worth, Biography, Wiki 2017-2016

James “Jimmy” William Johnson was born on the 16th July 1943, in Port Arthur, Texas, USA, and is a retired American football player, and coach of franchises such as the Dallas Cowboys and Miami Dolphins. He retired from coaching after the 1999 season, but soon after has found his place as an NFL analyst and commentator, working for Fox NFL Sunday, which has also added to his overall net worth.

Have you ever wondered how rich is Jimmy Johnson? It has been estimated that Johnson’s net worth is over $40 million as of early 2016, with the main source of this amount being his career as a professional football coach, analyst and commentator. Another source is coming from selling his autobiographical book. Other than that, Johnson is the owner of the restaurant chain “Three Rings”, and the bar “JJ’s Big Chill” in Florida.

James William Johnson $40 Million

Jimmy Johnson attended Thomas Jefferson High School (now Memorial High School), and then continued his education at the University of Arkansas, where he started playing football, for the Arkansas Razorbacks as a defensive lineman, and was even named as the all-Southwest Conference defensive lineman. In 1964, Jimmy and his team won the national championship without losing a single game during the whole season.

The same year, Jimmy finished his education, and the next year his coaching career began to take-off. His first position was as the assistant coach of the Louisiana Tech under head coach Joe Alliet. He left the next year, and was appointed as assistant coach of the Picayune Memorial High School team. Before he signed his first contract as a head coach, he served as an assistant coach of the Wichita State University team (1967), Iowa State (1968-1969), Pittsburgh (1977-1978), and also worked as a defensive co-ordinator for teams of Oklahoma University (1970-1972), and Arkansas (1972-1973). They contributed steadily to his net worth.

His first job as a head coach came in 1979, when he was offered a contract with Oklahoma State University. He stayed with the team until 1983, and his skills came to show, as he turned around an inconsistent franchise to a winning one. Thanks to his skills, after his contract ended with Oklahoma, he received an offer from the University of Miami, which of course he accepted. He spent five years at Miami, winning his first national championship as a coach in 1987, and also reaching semi-finals, but his team lost to Penn State. After Miami, in 1989 Jimmy was offered the head coach job at NFL franchise the Dallas Cowboys, which increased his net worth to a large margin, as he accepted the contract offer. He stayed with the Cowboys until the end of the 1993 season, winning two Super Bowl rings with the team, in 1992 and 1993 season, both times defeating Buffalo Bills.

After his contract ended, Jimmy decided to leave coaching for a while, finding a job as an analyst with Fox Sports, until he joined the Miami Dolphins in 1996 as a replacement for Don Shula, who had retired at the end of the previous season.

However, his success with the Miami Dolphins was nowhere near that with the Dallas Cowboys, and three years later he decided to leave football for good.

Thanks to his successful career as a football coach, he was voted by the ESPN as the 13th best overall NFL coach; as a coach, he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2012. With ghostwriter Ed Hinton, he penned “Turning the Thing Around: My Life in Football” in 1993.

Apart from his work at the Fox Sports, his other TV appearances include participation in the reality show “Survivor: Nicaragua”, which also added to his overall net worth.

Speaking about his personal life, Jimmy Johnson married Linda Kay Cooper in 1963; the couple has two sons, but divorced in 1990. In 1999 he married Rhonda Rookmaaker, and they live in Florida, form where he manages his restaurant and bar in Key Largo.

1 Co-host, with Erica Shaffer, of an infomercial for "Better Trades". Also appearing are Annika Kielland and Freddie Ricks. [2009]
2 Spokesman for ExtenZe [February 2010].
3 Served as head football coach at Oklahoma State (1979-1983); University of Miami (1984-1988); Dallas Cowboys (1989-1993) and Miami Dolphins (1996-1999).
4 Served as an assistant coach at Louisiana Tech (1965); Picayune (1966); Wichita State (1967); Iowa State (1968-1969); Oklamoma (1970-1972); Arkansas (1973-1976) and Pittsburgh (1977-1978).
5 Interviewed for the head coaching job at Arkansas when Lou Holtz left after the 1983 season, only to find out later that fellow classmate and former teammate Ken Hatfield had already been hired. Was upset that Frank Broyles didn't say anything about this during the interview and has had very little to do with his alma mater ever since.
6 Played linebacker at Arkansas from 1962 to 1964, where he was named all-SWC in 1964. Member of the 1964 national champion squad. Graduated in 1965.
7 Coached the Miami Hurricanes to a national championship in 1987. Is one of only two coaches to win both a Super Bowl and a collegiate national championship, the other being Barry Switzer.
8 Attended high school with Janis Joplin [Port Arthur, Texas]; was even in a class with her.
9 Retired from coaching after getting embarrassed in the playoffs 62-7 by the Jacksonville Jaguars in 1999. This was viewed by some Notre Dame fans as poetic justice or, "What goes around, comes around", after his 1985 Miami squad had humiliated Notre Dame, 58-7 in Gerry Faust's last game as head coach of the Irish.
10 Refused to allow the University of Miami to retire Bernie Kosar's uniform number 20, citing that "Bernie didn't finish the program here", meaning that Kosar didn't play all five years of his college eligibility. Kosar had just led the Hurricanes to the national championship in 1983 (before Johnson became coach) as a redshirt freshman and was on his way to graduating from Miami a year ahead of his class with a dual major in finance and economics. In contrast, Vinny Testaverde's number 14 was retired, even though he never led the Hurricanes to a championship and never even came close to graduating.
11 At the University of Miami, he had coached future pro quarterbacks Bernie Kosar, Vinny Testaverde and Steve Walsh. Testaverde won the Heisman Trophy in 1986, while Walsh would go on to play for Johnson with the Dallas Cowboys.
12 He and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones were college football teammates at the University of Arkansas.
13 Divorced his first wife shortly after being hired by the Dallas Cowboys, telling reporters she no longer fits "into my game plan."
14 (1979-1983) Head Coach, Oklahoma State
15 High school classmate of G.W. Bailey and Janis Joplin in Port Arthur, Texas.
16 (1984-1988) Head Coach, University of Miami
