Packers to hire Brian Gutekunst as GM

The Packers hired Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager

The new Packers GM played two years of college football for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse until a shoulder injury cut his college career short.

The Green Bay Packers will continue interviews with top internal candidates to replace general manager Ted Thompson on Friday.

The Packers tabbed director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager, John McClain of the Houston Chronicle reported Sunday.




The other two were vice president of football administration Russ Ball and director of football operations Eliot Wolf.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had also said last week that he expected Schneider to stay put saying "I'm convinced of that".

Murphy has reportedly asked both Ball and Wolf to stay on, something Wolf might find hard. Hiring an in-house personnel guy who aligns with his philosophy and a similar approach that Thompson took is a good thing for a coach who was given a quiet one-year extension in the middle of the last season. He was promoted to director of of college scouting in 2012 and director of player personnel in March of 2016. The proof will be in their ability (or lack thereof) to return to just a second Super Bowl appearance with Aaron Rodgers, approaching his age-35 campaign, still in his prime.
