Packers promote Brian Gutekunst to general manager

Texans general manager Rick Smith left and owner Bob McNair right use Bill O'Brien's news conference to recite their high expectations in the short term

The man replacing him will come from a similar mold, as the Packers chose to give in-house candidate Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager.

The Green Bay Packers couldn't seem to get any external candidates to interview for their vacant general manager job, so they went with an in-house candidate.

According to multiple reports, the Green Bay Packers have hired Brian Gutekunst as their new general manager and will be inking him to a five-year deal.

It's unclear what the development means for Ball or Eliot Wolf, the director of football operations and, technically, a superior to Gutekunst.

Schneider, a Wisconsin native, began his National Football League career with the Packers as a scout in 1993.

After Tense CNN Interview with Stephen Miller, President Trump Fires Back
On Twitter, Trump insisted that he was a " very stable genius " in defense of some critics speculating about his mental health. Now I have to put up with a Fake Book, written by a totally discredited author", he tweeted .

The #Packers are swinging big on their GM search.

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

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. He has also served as the Packers Director of College Scouting and most recently Director of Player Personnel since 2015.

Gutekunst has spent 19 years working in the Packers' personnel department.

Gutekunst has been Green Bay's player personnel director for almost two years, though he has been with the Packers' player personnel department for almost two decades.
