Current Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren will reportedly be the lone inductee during the Green Bay Packers’ 42nd Hall of Fame induction banquet. Set to be held on July 21, Holmgren will join greats like Ron Wolf and Reggie White as key members of the consecutive Super Bowl appearances within the 1990s.

In seven years with the Packers, Holmgren amassed a regular record of 75-37, setting franchise records for playoff births as well as consecutive victories within the confines of Lambeau Field. Echoing Holmgren’s recent sentiments on “finding a quarterback,” the one who they call The Big Show arrived in Green Bay in 1992, landed Brett Favre via trade one season later and won a Super Bowl in 1996.

“He probably had the leadership qualities that a lot of people don’t have,” Packers president Bob Harlan said. “A lot of people are comfortable in the coordinator’s position and that’s where they ought to stay. … [Mike] took control of his locker room. Took control of his coaches. He just took charge.”

Holmgren is set to enter year three of his five-year contract with the Browns. His franchise has had one playoff appearance since their return in 1999 and will be coming off of a 4-12 season that was rife with off-field issues and on-field injuries.
