Packers Will Name Director Of Player Personnel Brian Gutekunst Next GM

According to John McClain of the Houston Chronicle, the Packers director of player personnel came to Houston, but didn't interview with the Texans because he chose to stay with the Packers.

Gutekunst was introduced to the Packers as an intern in the team's scouting department in the summe rof 1997, and was hired as a full-time employee by Ron Wolf on December 30, 1998.

The Green Bay Packers' general manager search didn't last too long. The 44-year-old will take over the role from Ted Thompson, who will remain as senior advisor to football operations with the Packers. The Packers named Gutekunst the GM before another team could do it first. Green Bay reached the postseason every year from 2009-16 - one season shy of the National Football League record - before having that string snapped after this year's 7-9 campaign.

Marcus Rashford was the guiltiest party in the first half with a poor point-blank header that he tamely nodded against the post. In the 24th minute, United earned a free-kick on the edge of the Derby box but Mata's effort was saved brilliantly by Carson.

As for the two other in-house candidates for the Packers GM job Russ Ball and Eliot Wolf that didn't get the job, it sounds like the Packers still want to keep them around.

McCarthy is also filling several assistant coaching vacancies, including both the offensive and defensive coordinator positions.

The Packers, who finished a 7-9 campaign - their first losing season and playoff miss since 2008 - have undergone an organizational shift since the season ended.
