Eliot Wolf, the 30-year-old son of former Packers General Manager Ron Wolf, is looking like a rising star in the Packers’ front office.
Wolf is in line for a significant promotion and will assume the duties of former director of football operations Reggie McKenzie, now the general manager of the Raiders, according to Bob McGinn of the Journal Sentinel. Wolf, who has worked for the Packers since 2004, took on additional responsibilities for this year’s draft when McKenzie left for Oakland.
Few people have achieved as high a rank in an NFL front office at as young an age as Wolf, who’s likely to follow in his father’s footsteps and become a general manager some day.
The Packers are also expected to name Brian Gutekunst the assistant director of college scouting, replacing Shaun Herock, who left to become the Raiders’ director of college scouting. Packers area scouts Alonzo Highsmith and Sam Seale may be given expanded roles by Packers G.M. Ted Thompson as well.
