The Packers personnel department saw a series of changes to kick off the offseason after Ted Thompson stepped down as General Manager.

Thompson moved to a senior advisor role with Brian Gutekunst getting bumped up from director of player personnel to the G.M. job. Longtime personnel execs Eliot Wolf and Alonzo Highsmith moved to new jobs in Cleveland and the Packers announced the new structure of their front office on Friday.

Gutekunst’s old job will now be filled by two people. Jon-Eric Sullivan and John Wojciechowksi have been promoted to co-directors of player personnel. Sullivan was the director of college scouting the last two years and Wojciechowski is making the move from director of pro personnel.

Matt Malaspina will take over Sullivan’s former job and the Packers made several other promotions in the department. They also announced the hiring of former Browns scout Pat Moore and former NFL defensive back Brandian Ross as college scouts.

    I thought Rodgers was the director of player personnel.

    Obviously, no.
    But, that’s alright, this hasn’t been the first time one of you Barneys have gotten something wrong.
    And I’m quite sure this isn’t going to be the last, either.

  3. “Gutekunst’s old job will now be filled by two people”.

    I always said it would take two people to replace him. One to find out what he did and the other to do it.

  4. He has as many Super Bowl titles as Dilffer, Hostletter, Williams, Farve and Foles… What makes him so special?

  5. They didn’t have any one person qualified, so instead of finding someone that is qualified, they put two unqualified employees into the position.

    That’s the same thing they did for the backup qb spot.

    That’s how they roll…..🤣

    Let me guess…..you've never had the experience of an employer taking a chance on you for a job…..or promotion. It happens all the time. These two seem eminently qualified BTW for their new roles.

    Can’t wait for Aaron’s opinion/non-opinion.
    “Its not my job but why would we hire two more people. I will support whatever they bring to the table.”

    For a guy who just wants Aaron Rodgers to shut up, you sure talk about him a lot.

    They just hired a former Browns scout to make sure their roster continued to be garbage.

    Much like the Vikings hired their head coach from the Bengals to instill a winning tradition.

    Highest rated QB of all-time

    3rd highest rated active post-season QB.. 1 great game away from reclaiming the top spot

    Tom Brady post-season rating – 90.4
    Aaron Rodgers – 99.4

    He’s the best QB of his era, hands down.

    The Packers haven’t had a respectable defense since 2010.

    And yet larger than the entire Viking universe…..

    To begin with, I’ll bet he can correctly spell the three names you couldn’t.

    ===================================================================================================================
    So Dan Marino, Fran Tarkenton, Jim Kelly, and Viking coach Bud Grant aren’t special (among many others) because none of them have won championships?

    If someone doesn’t understand the difference between elite or Hall-of-Fame QB’s and guys like Dilfer and Hostetler, as well as the fact that football is a team sport that depends upon both offense and defense , it’s probably time to find something else to follow.
