Early years

Born and raised in Parkin, Arkansas, Hanner grew up with four siblings on a family farm west of Memphis and played college football at the University of Arkansas.[4]

Playing career

Selected in the fifth round of the 1952 NFL draft, 52nd overall, Hanner played defensive tackle for the Packers for thirteen seasons, from 1952 to 1964, and was selected for the Pro Bowl in 1953 and 1954. He started at left defensive end in 1961 and 1962 for the team's first two National Football League championships under head coach Vince Lombardi. During his NFL career, Hanner played in 160 of 164 possible regular season games, missing three of those in his rookie season.[5]

Coaching career

Following his playing career, Hanner spent sixteen seasons as an assistant coach for the Packers. From 1965 through 1970, he was the defensive line coach. When Dan Devine took over as head coach in 1971, he was promoted to the defensive coordinator, a position he served in until 1974.[6] Bart Starr became the team's head coach in 1975 and Hanner remained as the assistant head coach and defensive coordinator. He was released after the 1979 season (and then worked for the rival Chicago Bears), but returned as the team's quality control assistant in 1982.[7][8] He transferred into a scout role until he retired in 1996.[4][9]

Hanner was inducted into both the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame and the Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame.

After being in poor health for an extended period, Hanner suffered a heart attack and died two days later on September 11, 2008.[1] Age 78, he was survived by his wife, six children, seven grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren.[10]
