Hall of Fame Professional Football Coach. Acclaimed as NFL head coach of the 1960s, he began his distinguished NFL coaching career as offensive coordinator for the New York Giants serving for five seasons, (1954-58). Having gained a reputation with the Giants for his stylish, thorough and imaginative craftsmanship on offense, at age 45 he accepted the head coaching job for the Green Bay Packers in 1959. For the next nine seasons (1959-67), he led the Packers to a record of 89 wins 29 loss, 4 tied, five NFL Championship titles (1961-62, 1965-66, 1967), plus wins in Super Bowl I 1966 and Super Bowl II 1967. In 1968, he retired as the Packers head coach but remained as General Manager. He found it boring not coaching so he moved to Washington D.C. in 1969 and started coaching the Washington Redskins. There he led the Redskins to their first winning record in 14 years and before he could build another dynasty, he died of cancer at age 57. He was posthumously inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
