SHARE REPORT: JOHNSON EITHER GOING TO EAGLES OR WAITING A YEAR

The Dallas Morning News and the Philadelphia News are reporting that Jimmy Johnson will either coach the Philadelphia Eagles next season or wait another year before he returns to coaching.

The official announcement will come on Sunday's Fox NFL preview show. The network, where Johnson now works, already was running promotional spots - "Jimmy's Big Announcement" - during the San Francisco-San Diego game.According to Tim Cowlishaw and Barry Horn of the Dallas Morning News, "Johnson has narrowed his choices to one team, the Eagles, or staying out of coaching for at least one more year. Johnson has made no secret that his preference remains to coach the Miami Dolphins, and delaying his return for one year would increase his chances of landing the job he covets."

They also reported that Eagles' owner Jeff Lurie would make Johnson the highest-paid coach in football. Johnson is seeking a salary-and-benefits package that would equal $4 million a year.

Johnson left the Dallas Cowboys last year after guiding the team to its second straight Super Bowl.
