Jim Johnson Dies at 68


Former Eagles Def. Coordinator Jim Johnson dies at the age of 68. He spent twenty-three years as an NFL assistant coach and his last ten years as the Eagle’s Defensive Coordinator. He was known for having one of the top defensive minds in the league, his plays were very intricate and scheming. Jim had overcome cancer at one point but it returned and became stronger. Eagles announced Sunday that Jim’s position will be replaced by Sean Mcdermott. Rest in peace Jim and we thank you for contributing so much to the NFL.
