John “Red” Cochran, a former Packers assistant coach and longtime scout, will be inducted posthumously into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame on Saturday.

A native of Fairfield, Ala., Cochran was the Packers’ offensive backfield coach for two different stints — during the Vince Lombardi era from 1959-66 and then again from 1971-74.

After retiring from coaching, Cochran became a full-time scout for the Packers until 1987 and then continued in that capacity part-time until his death in 2004 at age 82.

Cochran was inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame in 1997.
