Packers Choose Gutekunst For New GM

The Green Bay Packers have chosen another general manager with a background in scouting and player personnel. 

Several N-F-L sources are reporting Brian Gutekunst will be promoted to the position previously held by Ted Thompson.  Gutekunst had traveled to Houston to interview for the G-M job with the Texans, but that interview was called off when he accepted the Packers position Sunday.  The 44-year-old executive is entering his 20th year in the N-F-L, starting under Hall of Fame general manager Ron Wolf in 1997.  Other than a year as a scouting assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs, Gutenkunst has been with Green Bay ever since.
