Holmgren To Be Inducted Into Packers Hall of Fame

From the team:

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. announced today that it will induct former Packers head coach Mike Holmgren at the 42nd Hall of Fame Induction Banquet, to be held Saturday, July 21, 2012, in the Lambeau Field Atrium.

(Holmgren's) overall win total, 84, is the third most in franchise history, trailing only Curly Lambeau, 212, and Vince Lombardi, 98. His winning percentage, .667, is tied with Lambeau for the second best in team history, behind only the .766 mark of Lombardi. With at least one postseason win in five consecutive seasons (1993-97), Holmgren is one of only three coaches in NFL history to have achieved the mark, along with John Madden (Oakland, 1973-77) and Bill Belichick (New England, 2003-07).

His 1996 Super Bowl championship team led the league in both points scored (456) and points allowed (210), becoming one of only 12 teams in NFL history to accomplish the feat and the first since 1972.

Tickets for the banquet, which begins with the doors opening at 4:30 p.m. with a cash bar, and dinner and program to follow at 7 p.m., are $135 each. Tables of 10 also are available for $1,300 and are assigned in the order in which they are purchased. Early reservations are recommended. To purchase tickets, call Gwen Borga at (920) 965-6984, or e-mail her atgwenb@packershalloffame.com. No refunds are available 30 days prior to the event.

Congratulations to Coach Holmgren for the well-deserved honor.
