Daryl "Moose" Johnston joins the NFL on FOX crew along with former teammate Troy Aikman. Johnston was one of the NFL's premier blocking fullbacks during an 11-year career with the Cowboys. He became a full-time starter in 1991 and was a key member of the Cowboys' three Super Bowl winning teams (1993, 1994 and 1996). A two-time Pro Bowl selection (1993 and 1994), he played in 149 consecutive games, including playoffs, before sitting out a game in 1997 with a career-threatening neck injury. Neck problems sidelined him for good after one game in 1999. Johnston finished his career catching 294 passes for 2,227 yards and 14 touchdowns, as well as 232 rushes for 753 yards and eight touchdowns.
Johnston earned high praise during his first season as an NFL analyst for CBS Sports last season. He also gained experience as an analyst on FSN NFL Europe League games last spring. Johnston co-hosted "Inside the Huddle" with Craig James on KDFW-TV (1996), hosted "The Daryl Johnston Show" on KXAS-TV (1997) and hosted a weekly radio show, "The Moose Call," on KRLD/KLIF in Dallas for six years. Johnston also called three Dallas Cowboys preseason games in 2000 for KVIL Radio.
A second-round draft pick out of Syracuse in 1989, Johnston was an All-America and All-Big East selection in 1988 and earned his degree in economics. He was born on Feb. 10, 1966 in Youngstown, N.Y. and resides in Plano, Texas with his wife, Diane and son, Aidan.
