Jimmy taking his Johnson to Survivor?

I'm not quite sure why he'd want to do this. But Dallas Morning News sportswriters Mark Francescutti and Barry Horn report that former Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson will be a contestant on CBS' Survivor: Nicaragua, which launches this fall on a new night, Wednesday.

The DMN story quotes a "source close to Johnson." CBS has declined to confirm or deny, but will officially announce the new Survivor cast in August. Taping of the latest edition began late last month.

Johnson, 67, has seldom been seen with his hair out of place, but that presumably would be a regular occurrence on Survivor. His participation also would give his Fox pre- and post-game show pals plenty to chew on during the upcoming NFL season. The only catch: it's on a rival network, with Survivor scheduled to go against Fox's already ratings-challenged Lie to Me on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. (central).
