When we first heard that Reggie McKenzie was possibly headed to Oakland as their next general manager, we heard that coach Hue Jackson wasn’t fired up about the development.
Part of the concern was that McKenzie would bring along Eliot Wolf, the son of former Packers G.M. Ron Wolf who was advising the Raiders in the G.M. search.
In the end, McKenzie did take the Raiders job. But Eliot Wolf won’t be going anywhere.
Bob McGinn of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports that Eliot Wolf will remain in Green Bay. He’s expected to become the Packers’ next head of pro personnel.
So in the end, Ron Wolf’s recommendation of McKenzie did help his son out. It was just a little more indirect than expected.
