Lombardi, Vince(nt Thomas)
born June 11, 1913, Brooklyn, N.Y., U.S.
died Sept. 3, 1970, Washington, D.C.

U.S. football coach.

He attended Fordham University, where he played on the famous line known as the "Seven Blocks of Granite." As head coach and general manager of the Green Bay Packers (1959–67), he imposed a strenuous regimen and led the team to five NFL championships (1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, 1967) and to victories in Super Bowls I and II (1967, 1968). Because of his success, he became a national symbol of single-minded determination to win. As coach, general manager, and part owner of the Washington Redskins in 1969, he led that team to its first winning season in 14 years.
