Honorary Hall of Fame Members


The ten NFL head coaches listed below should be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame as Honorary Members. None of them coached in Green Bay, two played at Lambeau Field — but only one as a Packers player. What is their significance? These ten coaches have all prevented the Minnesota Vikings from becoming NFL champions. And that is enough in our book to recognize their lasting contributions to mankind.
