Green Bay, WI (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Mike Holmgren was officially inducted into the Green Bay Packers hall of fame on Saturday night, that after guiding the team to 84 wins and a Super Bowl victory during his time as head coach.

Holmgren joined the Packers in 1992 and stayed on as head coach through the 1998 season, with the Super Bowl win coming following the 1996 campaign.

The former Packers coach led the team to six consecutive winning seasons, the first such streak since the 1960s, and a franchise-record six straight playoff appearances.

His 84 career wins are the third most in franchise history, trailing only the 98 of Vince Lombardi and the 212 of Curly Lambeau.

In 1996, his team led the NFL in both points scored and points allowed, becoming one only 12 teams in league history to ever accomplish that feat.
