  • The Tom Lombardo Chapter of the National Football Foundation would like to send condolences to the entire Hanifan family for the passing of coach Jim Hanifan. He was a true coaching legend and an even better person. A regular at the November foundation luncheons, he was a big favorite and would pack the room. His stories and legacy will endure forever.
