In honor of Super Bowl Weekend. Here is a little football sports trivia for you. On January 28, 1959, the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) signed Vince Lombardi to a five-year contract as the team's coach and general manager. The second Super Bowl, a win over the Oakland Raiders, marked Lombardi's last game with the Packers. In 1967, he announced his retirement, leaving with an overall coaching record in Green Bay of 98-30-4.
He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame the following year. The Super Bowl trophy was subsequently renamed the Vince Lombardi Trophy, ensuring that Lombardi's name—and his legacy as the greatest football coach of the 20th century—will be remembered forever.
