Gulfport, FL - Famed football coach Jimmy Johnson was in town Friday, for the Tranquil Shores Charity Golf Classic at the Pasadena Yacht & Country Club. Johnson supports the Tranquil Shores substance abuse program, where his son ... Chad Johnson ... is the CEO.
Johnson spoke to 10 News' Travis Bell about football, and specifically the Buccaneers and new head coach Greg Schiano. Johnson said Schiano is revamping the team, the right way.
"You need to change the atmosphere," said Johnson. "And when you've lost football games, you need to change the culture. And that's what I think Greg Schiano has done."
Johnson added that moving from college football to the NFL, is a huge jump and a completely different coaching style. Johnson did the same thing, when he switched from the University of Miami, to the Dallas Cowboys. He said, hiring coaches with NFL experience, which Schiano has done, is a very smart move.
