Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi was born June 11, 1913.
Lombardi is best known as the coach of the Green Bay Packers. He led the team to three straight and five total NFL championships. The Packers, under Lombardi, won the first two Super Bowls in 1966 and 1967.
He never had a losing season as a head coach in the NFL, compiling a regular season winning percentage of .728 (96–34–6), and .900 (9–1) in the postseason for an overall record of 105 wins, 35 losses, and 6 ties in the NFL.
The National Football League's Super Bowl trophy is named in his honor. Lombardi was inducted in the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971, a year after dying from cancer.
