Need a reason to hate/dislike Jimmy Johnson? Now you have one, mgoboard. Apparently he hangs out with Urban Meyer and thinks Jim Harbaugh going back to Michigan is lame.

Jimmy Johnson jabs Bill Belichick, claims Jim Harbaugh took easy way out as he roars into Houston with Heart
The guy who turned the Miami Hurricanes into the most feared program in college football — and a cultural touchstone that's still relevant today — has become something of a coach guru. He goes fishing with Urban Meyer — with the Ohio State coach seeking out his expertise and bringing his son Nate along.
For all his wit and his current relaxed vibe, Johnson carries a strong sense of what's right and wrong in coaching.
That's why he's not going to join the chorus praising Jim Harbaugh for leaving the NFL to take on the Michigan job.
You want to call that move courageous? Please. Jimmy Johnson does not hesitate to paint going to a program as storied as Michigan as something of the easy way out.
"You look at the top schools in college and there's the chance to win 10, 11, 12 games and play for the national championship every year," he says. "The difference between the top schools and everyone else is just so huge.
"You're guaranteed by just showing up that you're going to win eight or nine. On the pro level, that's not the way it is. It's a grind."
If you are still wondering why Jimmy Johnson never returned to coaching despite some serious courting over the years, the way he talks about the extreme toll of NFL coaching now is instructive. "You have no life other than coaching in professional football," Johnson says. "In college, you at least have some opportunity to spend some time with your family."
YES, HARBAUGH TOOK THE EASY WAY OUT COMING TO HIS ALMA MATER. HE WILL MOST DEFINITELY NOT STAY. WAIT THOSE TWO THINGS ARE OPPOSITE, OH WHY DO YOU CONFUSE ME NFL
