Green Bay Packers assistant coach Kevin Greene has been selected as one of 15
modern era finalists for election into 2014 class of the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The 15 finalists were determined by a vote of the Hall’s Selection Committee from a list of 126 nominees that earlier was reduced to a list of 25 semifinalists, during the multi-step, year-long selection process.
To be elected a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80-percent.
Greene played 15 seasons in the NFL for four different teams (LA Rams, Pittsburgh, Carolina and San Francisco). He was selected by the Rams in the 5th round (113th player overall) in the 1985 draft.
Greene was selected All Pro first team with the Rams in 1989, Pittsburgh in 1994 and Carolina in 1996. He won the league sack title in 1994 and 1996.
Greene totalled 160 sacks during his career, collecting 10 or more sacks in 10 different seasons.
If elected, Green would become the 16th longtime St. Louis/Los Angeles Rams member elected to the Hall of Fame.
The 46-member selection committee will vote Feb. 1 in New York (the eve of the Super Bowl).
