When Jimmy Johnson was football coach at the University of Miami, he told its president to go to hell — and survived. After coaching the Dallas Cowboys, he mocked the owner for getting a face-lift, compared him to Michael Jackson — and survived.

Now he’s going to Nicaragua as a contestant on the TV show Survivor.

I’m betting on Nicaragua.

Several news outlets reported Wednesday that the 67-year-old Johnson is leaving his fishing boat in the Keys for San Juan del Sur, the beachside town in southern Nicaragua where production of the 21st season of Survivor started earlier this month.

Johnson is a total Survivor geek who never misses an episode and has been trying to make the cast for a couple of years now. He almost succeeded in 2008, but missed the final cut when a physical turned up arterial blockage. Two years later and 30 pounds lighter, he’s succeeded.

Good Luck Jimmy, Any remember there’s no beers on Survivor….
