Holmgren to enter Packers Hall of Fame


Former Green Bay Packers Coach Mike Holmgren will be inducted into the team's Hall of Fame this summer.

The 63-year-old is currently the team president for the Cleveland Browns.

Holmgren was hired in 1992 and led the Packers to a 75-37 regular-season record in seven years. The seven consecutive winning seasons remains the longest such streak in team history since the 1970s.

The Green Bay Press-Gazette reports Holmgren will be the lone inductee at the banquet July 21.

Former Green Bay Packers President Bob Harlan said Holmgren brought to the Packers a great offensive mind and leadership ability. He says he also knew how to control Brett Favre, which wasn't always easy to do.
