By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Former NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson is going to a special player with select players, coaches, and contributors. Johnson has been elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Sunday.

Johnson is the second member of the Class of 2020. He joins fellow former coach Bill Cowher, who was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday.

Both Cowher and Johnson had special surprises to announce their induction. David Baker, the President of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, made their announcements on national TV.

Traditionally, the Saturday before the Super Bowl, Baker knocks on the hotel doors to give the players their Hall of Fame induction speech. However, with this year being the 100th year of the league, they are doing something different.

The entire Class of 2020 is expected to be announced on Wednesday morning during the Good Morning Football show.

The 76-year-old Port Arthur, Texas native was 80-64 as an NFL head coach. He also went 9-4 in the postseason.

He was a two-time Super Bowl winner in Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII with the Cowboys. Johnson was also the AP NFL Coach of the Year in 1990.

Johnson coached in the NFL with the Cowboys and the Miami Dolphins. He went 36-28 as the Dolphins head coach.

With the Cowboys; however, he went 44-36.

Now, with his Pro Football Hall of Fame induction coming in August, he is one of a select few individuals, who has achieved this feat. He is now part of the College Football Hall of Fame and the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
