Packers promoting Gutekunst to be next GM

08 January 2018

Ian Rapoport, National Insider for NFL Network and NFL.com, tweeted on Sunday, January 7th Green Bay Packers are hiring Brian Gutekunst as their GM. The man replacing him will come from a similar mold, as the Packers made a decision to give in-house candidate Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager.

Murphy has reportedly asked both Ball and Wolf to stay on, something Wolf might find hard. Along with Gutekunst, they're highly respected in league circles and have been sought after for outside vacancies in recent seasons. He could join former Senior Personnel Analyst Alonzo Highsmith who joined John Dorsey's scouting staff in Cleveland last week. One of the rumors was that Green Bay could have Gutekunst split the GM role with Russ Ball.

But how much are the Packers really changing?

Also of interest here is this means good things for Mike McCarthy. And McCarthy was very involved in the search to replace Thompson.

But that's a moot point now that the Packers have their man in Gutekunst, who had been Green Bay's director of player personnel since 2016 and has been in the Packers' organization since 1998.

But it's clear, despite the turnover, that the Packers still dearly value continuity and familiarity, and some of these changes seem cosmetic in nature.
