When the Class of 2011 is inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, this Saturday, the prestigious club will have 267 members. And while many of those greats from football have gone on to broadcasting careers or become highly successful businessmen, few have had the success in another sport like three-time Super Bowl-winning coach and 1996 inductee Joe Gibbs.
