Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren became the third coach to be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on Saturday night in a festive ceremony at Lambeau Field.

Holmgren, who coached the Packers from 1992 to 1998, joined Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi with the honor. Green Bay went 75-37 during Holmgren's tenure, winning the Super Bowl during the 1996 season. Before Holmgren took over, the franchise had endured two-plus decades of mediocrity.

During an interview with WLUK-TV, former Packers general manager Ron Wolf said, "He comes here and never has a losing season. To me, that's his legacy. His legacy is, when you think about the great Packers coaches of all time, you've got the two L's, then you've got Mike Holmgren."
