Jimmy Johnson on Sunday's Fox NFL Pre-Game show didn't deny the possibility of returning to his old team, the Dallas Cowboys, for another tour of duty as head coach.

In recognition of Veterans Day the network traveled to Afghanistan to recognize the many servicemen and women serving their country. In the special two-hour live broadcast, soldiers were allowed to ask the panel of host various questions.

One female soldier stood and directed her question to Johnson: "Would you like to coach your old team, the Dallas Cowboys again?"

Johnson immediately responded: "Next question."

Later in the show, each host had an opportunity to pick a team that they thought might play in this year's Super Bowl. Johnson -- with a smile and laughter -- chose the Cowboys as his team to again take home the Lombardi Trophy.

OK, so maybe you might want to call Vegas and put a Benjamin on this one, but at the very least it does give Cowboy fans something to ponder.

Could there be a reunion in the mix for team owner Jerry Jones and Johnson? Many will argue that Johnson -- hired by Jones to replace Tom Landry in 1989 -- was the single biggest reason for the resurgence of the Cowboys to its glory days.

Johnson served as head coach for the Cowboys from 1989 - 1993. His teams finished with a winning record three of his five years, including world championships in both his 1992 and '93 seasons.

We here at WFAA-TV we would like to know your thoughts on Johnson's return to the Cowboys as head coach. Would you like to see a coaching change for next season? Do you think that Jones can give up enough control to entertain the idea of bringing Johnson back to coach his team?
