Why Packers' Reported GM Hire Is Good News For Bill Belichick, Patriots

Ron Wolf: Packers didn't deem son Eliot worthy of GM job 'or they would've hired him' Why Packers' Reported GM Hire Is Good News For Bill Belichick, Patriots

The Packers promoted him to director of college scouting in 2012 and director of player personnel in 2016.

Brian Gutekunst was supposed to interview with the Texans today, but didn't. He returned to the Packers as a college scout on December 30, 1998, when he was hired by then-general manager and Hall of Famer Ron Wolf.

The Houston Chronicle first reported Sunday that Gutekunst had taken the job.

The San Francisco 49ers previously courted Gutekunst as a general manager candidate last offseason.

Gutekunst interned in the Packers' scouting department in the summer of 1997. A promotion from within isn't surprising for Green Bay, but the team may have been interested in an outside hire before making the promotion.

The Packers have not officially announced a hiring.

The Packers had to tread through some drama. In addition to stripping Thompson of his duties, the club is searching for new coordinators to replace Dom Capers and Edgar Bennett and several new assistants, including quarterbacks, defensive line and assistant linebackers. That is not the case, and it's unclear if Ball will stay in his current position as vice president. Schneider, a Wisconsin native, was the director of football operations for the Packers before being hired by the Seahawks in 2010.

Gutekunst has also experience working with coach Mike McCarthy, who received an extension during the season to put him under contract through 2019.
