Packers to Name Gutekunst GM

The Green Bay Press-Gazette's Ryan Wood reports new Packers GM Brian Gutekunst is expected to be more active in free agency than ex-GM Ted Thompson. The 44-year-old Gutekunst takes over the role from Thompson, who will remain as senior adviser to football operations with the Packers.

"The process of identifying our next general manager gave us the opportunity to analyze our entire football operation", Murphy said.

Several outlets, including Rob Demovsky of ESPN and Ian Rappaport with the NFL Network reported Sunday afternoon Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy has made his choice and it's the team's current Director of Player Personnel. The request for the Green Bay native was denied.

The Green Bay Packers' general manager search didn't last too long.

That's good news for Mike McCarthy, who reportedly isn't in good graces with Ball and could've been out as the Packers' head coach if Ball was named GM.

Schneider signed a five-year contract extension with the Seahawks in 2016 that provided no "out clause" to Green Bay should a position become available.

Gutekunst will be entering his 20th season with the Packers. 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.
