List of Green Bay Packers head coaches

There have been 15 head coaches for the Green Bay Packers, a professional American football team of the National Football League (NFL). The franchise was founded in 1919 by Curly Lambeau and competed for two years against teams around Wisconsin and Michigan before entering into the American Professional Football Association, which is now known as the NFL.

Four different coaches have won NFL championships with the Packers: Earl Louis "Curly" Lambeau in 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, and 1944; Vince Lombardi in 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, and 1967; Mike Holmgren in 1996;[2] and Mike McCarthy in 2010. Lambeau is the franchise leader in career games (334) and career wins (209), while Lombardi has the best winning percentage (.754).[3] Ray (Scooter) McLean has the worst winning percentage (.077).[4] Four Packers coaches — Lambeau, Lombardi, Bart Starr and Forrest Gregg — have been elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, although Starr and Gregg are recognized as players.[5] Lombardi and Lindy Infante have both been named the league's coach of the year by major news organizations.

The current head coach of the Green Bay Packers is Mike McCarthy, who was hired on January 12, 2006.[6]
