Packers promote Brian Gutekunst to general manager

Packers promote Brian Gutekunst to general manager

Gutekunst, 44, has spent almost twenty years within the organization.

After all, Wolf's 35-year-old son, Eliot, also interviewed for the position to succeed Ted Thompson.

Gutekunst has been with the organization for almost two decades after being hired in 1998 by former GM and Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.

The 10th general manager in the history of the Green Bay Packers is now official.

The team also promoted Russ Ball to executive vice president/director of football operations.

Gutekunst spent the last two seasons as the director of player personnel after spending 17 seasons in the team's scouting department. Gutekunst, Ball and coach Mike McCarthy will all report to Murphy, who will have final say on coaching decisions.

With a new head coach coming in, the coaching staff that is now employed by the Indianapolis Colts will likely begin to make their way out and find new places to coach.

Hostler may not be heading to Green Bay alone. A name to watch in the coming days is Bears DC Vic Fangio, someone who has worked under Capers in the past, but recently has done a much better job adjusting to ever-changing National Football League offenses and getting more from his defenses than his mentor has of late. "Obviously the people up there don't think he's worthy or they would've hired him". The first departure since Chuck Pagano's firing came yesterday when wide receivers coach Jim Hostler agreed to join the Green Bay Packers' coaching staff. It was reported Saturday morning that the Packers are working to bring back their former offensive coordinator and current Colts offensive line coach Joe Philbin. While fans may be a bit anxious about bringing back Philbin after his disastrous tenure with the Dolphins, it is important to note that Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense broke multiple records in 2011 under him, and every year during Philbin's tenure Green Bay ranked in the top 10 in offensive production as well as scoring.
