Monday will mark Mar. 28, which means it's about to be a tough week for Dallas Cowboys fans.

This is the week when legendary head coach Jimmy Johnson left the organization after leading the team to back-to-back championships.

Johnson left the organization in 1994 after spending five years with them. During that time, he had a 44-36 overall record, though he did most of that damage in his final four seasons.

The Cowboys went just 1-15 in Johnson's first season as head coach before he really turned them around. Johnson was 43-21 in his next four seasons as head coach.

In both of the Super Bowls, the Cowboys took down the Bills in blowout fashion. The first one was a 52-17 final before Dallas won 30-13 in the second one.

After Johnson left the Cowboys, he spent four seasons with the Miami Dolphins (1996-99) and never reached the Super Bowl again.

Barry Switzer replaced Johnson after he left and the Cowboys went on to win their third Super Bowl in four years in 1995 over the Steelers.
