07:29 AM ET 07.21 | Apparently pining for a spot, Jimmy Johnson will finally have the chance to prove he's a Survivor. The former Dallas Cowboys coach will be a contestant on the CBS reality show "Survivor: Nicaragua" this fall, a source close to Johnson told the Dallas Morning News. The series is being taped in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua. Filming started at the end of June, according to local reports. The filming schedule will leave Johnson plenty of room to return in time for the NFL season. Johnson is an analyst for the Fox NFL Sunday studio show. Johnson, 67, will be one of the oldest contestants to ever appear on "Survivor," one of his favorite television shows.
