Saying Prescott’s name here truly should be enough, but the proof is in the pudding and Johnson has all the ingredients.

As quarterbacks coach at Mississippi State under Dan Mullen, Johnson helped develop the 2016 NFL Rookie of the Year Dak Prescott and led the Bulldogs to three consecutive bowl games.

Depending on what the Eagles do at quarterback, Johnson should be able to help both Wentz and Hurts, who’s style of play resembles Prescott’s and who the QB coach has known since childhood.

At Florida, Johnson turned Kyle Trask from backup to likely first-round pick.

Johnson helped lead Houston’s offense to 436.1 yards per game, good enough for 35th nationally during his time there. His trio of quarterbacks: Kyle Allen, D’Eriq King, and Kyle Postma combined for 2,887 passing yards, 539 rushing yards, and 27 total touchdowns, while King could join Allen in the NFL next year.
