The New York View — 1959

Today’s look back at Packers history is the New York Times article following the hiring of Vince Lombardi as Head Coach and General Manager in Green Bay. This is from a scrapbook history of football published by the newspaper in 1980. The 46-year-old New York-native, who had served as an assistant coach for the Giants from 1954-58, secured his first head coaching position since his time at St. Cecilia High School in Englewood, New Jersey. And the rest is history.
