Tim Cook = Phil Bengston?

Tim Cook, the new CEO of Apple,
should hope he doesn’t turn out like
Phil Bengston.

That’s a name that crossed my
mind after hearing the initial news
that Steve Jobs has relinquished his duties as CEO
of Apple, but wants to continue, as he put it in his
letter, “chairman of the board, director and Apple
employee.”

So who’s Phil Bengston? He was an assistant
coach working under head coach Vince Lombardi
of the Green Bay Packers. Bengston was named
head coach in 1968 — replacing Lombardi, who
continued with the team for one year as general
manager before leaving Green Bay.
