Former Green Bay Packers head coach Lindy Infante passed away on Thursday, at the age of 75.
Infante was a head coach in the NFL for six years, compiling a 36-60 record. He was the NFL Coach of the Year in 1989 with the Packers, but his only postseason appearance came in 1996 with the Indianapolis Colts in a wild card game loss to Pittsburgh (42-14).
The Packers hired Infante in February 1988, about a week after George Perles, the coach at Michigan State, backed out of the job 24 hours after accepting it.
Infante was the 10th coach in Packers franchise history, compiling a 24-40 record in four seasons before being fired by new general manager Ron Wolf not long after the final game in 1991.
Infante died of pneumonia.
