Packers hiring Brian Gutekunst as general manager

Packers hiring Brian Gutekunst as general manager

Gutekunst would replace Ted Thompson, who is transitioning to a senior advisory role in the front office.

The Green Bay Packers plan to name Brian Gutekunst as the new general manager, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Gutekunst just completed his 19th season in the team's player personnel department.

After Green Bay took Gutekunst off the market, it appears there's a leader in the clubhouse for the Texans job - and it's not a Patriots staffer. Unlike an earlier contract with the Seahawks, Schneider said his new deal - reported to pay him $4 million a year - did not include an out clause allowing him to go to Green Bay. He returned to the Packers as a college scout on December 30, 1998, when he was hired by then-general manager and Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.

Packers president Mark Murphy and coach Mike McCarthy interviewed director of football operations Eliot Wolf on Thursday.

By hiring Gutekunst, Murphy passed over Russ Ball, the team's Vice-President of Football Operations/Player Finance and Eliot Wolf, the son of former GM Ron Wolf, now the team's Director of Football Operations.

The Packers, who finished a 7-9 campaign - their first losing season and playoff miss since 2008 - have undergone an organizational shift since the season ended.
