The Green Bay Packers may be losing one of their top personnel men this offseason. Director of football operations Eliot Wolf and director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst are both scheduled to interview for the vacant San Francisco 49ers general manager job.
This isn’t the first time Wolf has been courted for a GM job, but it is the first time the Packers have let him interview for one. They have previously blocked any attempts of other teams to hire Wolf away. This will be Gutekunst’s first such shot at a GM job.
This development is quite interesting, particularly with Wolf, who most expect to take over the Packers’ general manager job when Ted Thompson leaves. There has been speculation that that time could be as soon as the end of this season.
Both Wolf and Gutekunst were promoted into their current positions back in March.
This could be a sign that Ted Thompson has no intention of stepping aside anytime soon.
