1959: The Packers hire Lombardi


We remember today that the Green Bay Packers hired Vince Lombardi as GM and coach:
"On January 28, 1959, the Green Bay Packers of the National Football League (NFL) sign Vince Lombardi to a five-year contract as the team's coach and general manager."
Lombardi inherited a 1-10-1 team but he turned the organization around quickly.   

Green Bay won 3 NFL titles and the first 2 Super Bowls.   Without question, the Packers were the most successful team of the 1960s.   

As a result, the Super Bowl Trophy is named after Coach Lombardi.
