Former NFL head coach Jimmy Johnson has treated himself to a belated Christmas present. He decided to buy himself a new private jet and posted a picture of it on his Twitter account.

Buying a jet to get around TSA checks is appealing, I hate taking off shoes and pulling everything out of your bag, but he could’ve just gotten into that Pre-TSA program. From what I was able to look up online, the plane is a 2001 Hawker 800XP made by Raytheon Aircraft Company. It has a turbo-fan engine made by Honeywell.

Does FOX Sports not have a jet they allow their on-air NFL talent to use? And will Johnson let his colleagues borrow it? One thing is for sure, FOX Sports must pay well.
