Jim Lee Howell was the Giants' head coach from 1954-60. He quickly added two future Hall of Fame coaches to his staff, Vince Lombardi to lead the offense and Tom Landry, whom he converted from a player, to coach the defense. In Howell's seven seasons as head coach, the Giants played in three NFL Championship Games and defeated George Halas's Chicago Bears, 47-7, in 1956. Howell's regular season record was 53-27-4 re-cord, a .630 winning percentage. He coached six future Pro Football Hall of Fame players in Huff, Robust-elli, Brown, Tunnell, Gifford and Don Maynard. Howell stayed with the Giants as Director of Player Personnel until his retirement in 1981.
