Green Bay reportedly promotes Brian Gutekunst to general manager

Green Bay Packers hire Brian Gutekunst as GM, so John Schneider stays put in Seattle

Green Bay reached out to Seattle, according to reports, and requested an interview with Schneider, but were denied the opportunity by the Seahawks.

Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst has canceled his interview with the Texans and agreed to remain in Green Bay. A 5-year deal for Gutekunst.

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 are hiring Brian Gutekunst as their GM.

The Packers found Ted Thompson's replacement without having to look outside the organization. Most notably is the Packers at least showing some interest in former scout/personnel man turned Seahawks general manager John Schneider. Green Bay submitted paperwork for permission to interview #Seahawks Super Bowl-winning GM John Schneider, I'm told.

Gutekunst has been with the Packers since 1998, when he joined the club as a college scout. Before that, he was Green Bay's director of college scouting from 2012 to 2015. Gutekunst was in the running to replace Ted Thompson in Green Bay, so it can not be ruled out that he will be promoted to general manager. Green Bay has yet to confirm the promotion.
