1. Vince Lombardi
Lombardi led the Green Bay Packers to five NFL championships, before taking the first two Super Bowls. His 105-35-6 career head coaching record remains the highest winning percentage for any NFL coaches who achieved 100 wins. Innovative in strategy, Lombardi also shook up the franchise organization hierarchy by assuming both the head coach and general manager positions. Lombardi invented the patented “Lombardi Sweep” that opponents could not stop, even if they knew the play was called. His motivational phrases have withstood the test of NFL time.
