Godspeed, Jim Johnson

Long time Eagles D-Coordinator Jim Johnson passed away from cancer today at 68 years old.

A defensive coordinator for the Eagles for 10 years and a defensive assistant in the NFL for 22 years, Johnson was renowned for his great motivation skills and fantastic defense. No matter what team he coached for, he will be missed as a great person and a great coach in the NFL.

I wish peace and tranquility for his wife and children and hope that these terrible times pass quickly. Anyone who has lost a loved one to cancer knows that this will be a trying time for them.

Tip one or two back tonight for Jim Johnson, a great man and a great coach. Godspeed, Jim.
