Highsmith will serve as the Browns' Vice President of Player Personnel.

The younger Wolf, who reportedly had a job opportunity in Oakland with former Packers executive and current general manager Reggie McKenzie, had been the director of football operations in Green Bay since 2016.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Wolf will receive a four-year contract to work under new Browns GM John Dorsey, also a former Packers executive.

The Browns also confirmed three other hires further down the organizational chart, the dismissal of senior personnel executive Ryan Grigson and that both previous vice presidents of player personnel Andrew Berry and Ken Kovash will be retained. Owner Jimmy Haslam will surely be hoping Dorsey and Wolf can lead the Browns back to respectability with haste. Former Packers senior personnel executive Alonzo Highsmith was recently hired as the Browns' vice president of football operations. 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. The Browns finished the regular season without a victory and are now 1-31 in the last two seasons under head coach Hue Jackson.

The new-look Cleveland Browns' front office is beginning to take shape.

Jimmy Noel was named assistant director of pro scouting, Matt Donahoe as scout and Dan Zegers as personnel coordinator. "We're going to build this team the right way and to be a part of that from the ground up is going to be special".
