Vincent Thomas "Vince" Lombardi (June 11, 1913 – September 3, 1970) was an Italian-American football coach. He is a legendary football figure, best known as the head coach of the Green Bay Packers during the 1960s. The National Football League's Super Bowl trophy is named in his honor.

Lombardi played American football at St. Francis Preparatory School, and later Fordham University.[1] He began coaching as an assistant and later as a head coach at St. Cecilia, a Catholic high school in Englewood, New Jersey. He would later coach at Fordham and the U.S. Military Academy. His NFL coaching debut was in 1954 as an offensive coordinator for the New York Giants, helping them win the 1956 NFL Championship Game. Lombardi was the head coach of the Green Bay Packers from 1959–67, winning five league championships during his nine years. Following a one-year retirement from coaching in 1968, he returned as head coach of the Washington Redskins for the 1969 season.

Lombardi's record in the post-season was 9–1, the only loss coming in the first of those games, the 1960 NFL Championship Game.
