Packers searching for new general manager

There are house divided stories all the time but nothing quite like the Hartman brothers out of Manitowoc County

In an offseason of significant changes, the Green Bay Packers should have stability at the head coaching position.

Mike McCarthy was given a contract extension during this past season.

Earlier in the day, the Packers fired defensive coordinator Dom Capers after nine seasons with the team.

McCarthy was entering the 2018 season without a deal, but will have a shot at turning things around after all.

"Mike is our man; he is our coach", Murphy said. They lost wide receivers coach Luke Getsy to Mississippi State.




Wilde reminds fans that the Packers gave former coach Mike Sherman an extension before he was sacked in 2005 by then newly hired GM Ted Thompson.

NFL Network is reporting that Packers General Manager Ted Thompson is expected to transition into a new role within the organization, and the team is looking for a new general manager.

Thompson fired Sherman at the end of 2005 and hired Mike McCarthy.

If the Packers choose to promote from within, there are several potential candidates, including director of football operations Eliot Wolf, CEO Mark Murphy, vice president Russ Ball, director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst, or senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith.

McCarthy is 131-78-1 (including 10-8 in the postseason) with one Super Bowl in his 12 National Football League seasons.
