Bill Cowher sends great tweet about Jimmy Johnson making Hall of Fame
On Saturday, Bill Cowher was surprised on CBS’ NFL TV set with the news that he had made the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a coach. A day later, it was Jimmy Johnson’s turn to receive the good news on set during halftime of the Packers-Seahawks playoff game.
Not only will Cowher and Johnson be part of the 2020 Pro Football Hall of Fame class, but they have also shared another moment together in the past. Cowher and Johnson were also featured in Adam Sandler’s classic football movie “The Waterboy” as fans watching Bobby Boucher. Cowher reminded everyone about that with a great tweet:
Congrats to @JimmyJohnson on joining the @ProFootballHOF! I wonder if @AdamSandler knew he had two future Hall of Famers in the stands watching Bobby Boucher in The Waterboy? pic.twitter.com/F9WUoycT05

Sandler knew the two coaches would always be linked together.
Troy Aikman had an emotional reaction to watching his former head coach learn about his induction. Michael Irvin and Barry Switzer also sent their congratulations to Johnson via Twitter.
