Legendary Miami football head coach Jimmy Johnson spoke to reporters recently ahead of his August 7 induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Johnson becomes the latest inductee with ties to Miami. Nine former Hurricanes players have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Johnson took the Miami football to another level after Howard Schnellenberger led the Hurricanes to the 1983 National Championship. Schnellenberger set the foundation for Miami to be successful. Johnson helped create the Hurricanes swagger during his five seasons.
