Lombardi and Landry : How Two of Pro Football's Greatest Coaches Launched Their Legends and Changed the Game Forever Paperback
Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry could not have had two more divergent personalities.
Yet, while working for the New York Giants of the mid-to-late 50s under head coach Jim Lee Howell, the pair formed what stands, to this day, as the greatest set of coordinators on one team.
Given their personalities, one might have likened Howell's job to that of Dwight Eisenhower as the general struggled to control the egos and politics of his allied subordinates during WWII.
But for some reason, Lombardi and Landry worked almost seamlessly, and as a result, the Giants rose to the top of the NFL.
