Holmgren new Pro Football HOF nominee

Posted by Mike Spofford on September 12, 2013 – 12:06 pm

Former Packers coach Mike Holmgren is among 16 first-year eligible modern-era candidates nominated for the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2014.

The full list of 126 nominees will be reduced to 25 semifinalists in late November, and then whittled further to 15 finalists announced in January.

Holmgren coached the Packers for seven seasons (1992-98), winning three division championships and qualifying for the playoffs six times. He led the Packers to three NFC Championship games and two Super Bowl appearances, winning Super Bowl XXXI.

Upon leaving Green Bay, Holmgren went on to coach the Seattle Seahawks to a berth in Super Bowl XL.

Other nominees with Packers ties from past years who remain on the list are former GM Ron Wolf, S LeRoy Butler and current OLB coach Kevin Greene.

Last year, Greene was one of the 15 finalists but was not elected.
