Jimmy Johnson net worth: Jimmy Johnson is an American football coaching legend who has a net worth of $40 million. Jimmy Johnson is probably most famous for his coaching career in the NFL, and then later as a TV football analyst. His career as a football coach began in 1965, when he started as an assistant coach for Louisiana Tech University. From there, he went on to successful coaching careers for Oklahoma State University, where he famously rebuilt a team that had been unsuccessful in the past, and the University of Miami, where he cultivated that team's reputation as the "Bad Boys of College Football." He did this by encouraging his players to talk trash, run up the score, and engage in other normally frowned-upon forms of showboating. His tactic must have worked, since the team earned its first undefeated season under Johnson in 1986. From the University of Miami, Johnson was eventually hired to coach for the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL, where he led the team to win two consecutive Super Bowl championships. Johnson is also one of only six coaches in NFL history to coach consecutive Super Bowl winners. After Dallas, Johnson returned to Miami to act as head coach for the Miami Dolphins, where he failed to capture his previous success with the Cowboys. Since then, he's had a successful career as a TV personality and pitchman.
