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.
