Packers OLB coach Kevin Greene has reached the finalist stage for Pro Football Hall of Fame induction for the third straight year.

Greene is one of 15 modern-era finalists from which no more than five players can be chosen for inducted when the Hall of Fame selection committee meets on Feb. 1, the day before the Super Bowl. There are also two senior nominees who may or may not be added to the group of modern-era inductees chosen.

Greene reached the semifinalist stage for the first of four straight years in 2008 and then became a finalist for the first time in 2012. The Hall of Fame’s induction class will be introduced during the “NFL Honors” show, a two-hour prime-time awards show at 7 p.m. CT on Feb. 1 on FOX.

The other finalists this year are K Morten Andersen, RB Jerome Bettis, LB Derrick Brooks, WR Tim Brown, Owner Edward DeBartolo Jr., Coach Tony Dungy, DE Charles Haley, WR Marvin Harrison, T Walter Jones, FS John Lynch, WR Andre Reed, G Will Shields, DE Michael Strahan and DB Aeneas Williams. The two senior nominees are P Ray Guy and DE Claude Humphrey.

A linebacker/defensive end for the Rams (1985-92), Steelers (1993-95), Panthers (1996, 1998-99) and 49ers (1997), Greene ranks third on the league’s all-time sack list with 160, behind only Bruce Smith and Reggie White. He recorded 10 double-digit sack seasons and was a five-time Pro Bowl selection.
