Eliot Wolf got a job with the Packers right out of college, and he looks like he’ll be staying in Green Bay for a long time.
The Packers announced today that Wolf has been promoted to director of player personnel.
The 33-year-old Wolf has been with the Packers for 11 years and was around the team even before that because his father is Ron Wolf, the longtime Packers executive who is a finalist this year for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Obviously, Eliot Wolf benefited from having a father in the right place, as many people in the football business do. But the fact that Eliot keeps getting promoted in Green Bay well after his father’s retirement suggests that he’s doing good work and advancing on his own merits. Ted Thompson won’t be around forever, and it won’t be surprising if some day, another Wolf is running the Packers’ front office.
