Former Green Bay Packers Coach Mike Holmgren stops in Greenfield
GREENFIELD (WITI) — Legendary Green Bay Packers Coach Mike Holmgren made a stop in Greenfield. The Super Bowl winning coach signed autographs at Legends of the Field on Saturday, March 7th.
Packers faithful showed up for a chance to get Holmgren’s ink on their memorabilia.
It’s one of the few public signings the coach has done since the Pack won Super Bowl XXXI back in 1996.
“It’s very rare to see somebody who isn’t with the team anymore but has left a true mark on the team and the organization. It was just an honor to say hello to him and shake his hand today. I remember that day in college watching Super Bowl XXXI and seeing the players put him up on their shoulders and carrying him off the field,” said Mike Seavert, Packers fan.
In 2012, Coach Holmgren was the third head coach inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame.
