“In 1960, [General William] Westmoreland had become superintendent of West Point, where he was perhaps best remembered for rejecting a plan to hire Vince Lombardi to coach the academy’s football team. ‘Lombardi was too tough, too obsessed with winning, and he had slapped around a cadet while he had been Red Blaik’s assistant,’ Westmoreland told his friend and subordinate Gen. Phillip Davidson. ‘This was not the kind of man I wanted around cadets.’”
