He failed to deliver with the Miami Dolphins, proving that he was only in it for the money and not doing much of anything in South Beach. He is now a decent analyst for FOX on their pregame show and during halftime.
But after his suggestion for the Arkansas Razorbacks football program, it is also clear what else Johnson is now.
I said it, and I’ll say it again. Johnson is an idiot. Here is a man who would appear to place winning above everything else, including morality, even though he proved he was not at all committed to winning with the Dolphins.

So...what do you think about disgraced former Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino taking over for Joker Phillips at Kentucky?

Arkansas Razorbacks: Arkansas only has three games left in the season in what could be the toughest stretch of 2012 with all three being against top twenty opponents. You can barely tell, though, as the talk around the state has shifted to who will be the [...]
It’s no secret that Illinois Fighting Illini fans weren’t the happiest with the hire of Tim Beckman as college football coach. And Athletic Director Mike Thomas didn’t exactly “win the news conference” when Beckman was introduced either. Beckman didn’t come off as extremely polished and ready for prime time in that presser, so Illini Nation remains restless. The 2-7 start...

On Thursday night I appeared on the "Rob After Dark" radio show down in Florida to discuss this year's college football coaching carousel. A lot of conversation stemmed off this article...
