Hall of Fame Professional Football Coach. He rose from humble beginnings as the son of Oklahoma homesteaders to become one of the most successful coaches in National Football League history. During 23 years as New York Giants coach, his teams played to a 153-108-17 record, winning two NFL championships and eight divisional titles. In 1966, two years after his death, he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Among his original ideas were the A-formation offense, the umbrella defense, and the two-platoon system.
