Gutekunst, who has been with the Packers in a scouting or personnel role for the past 19 seasons, was slated to interview for the Texans' GM vacancy Sunday and made the trip to Houston before accepting his new role with Green Bay.
The Packers found Ted Thompson's replacement without having to look outside the organization.
Why Tesla Model 3 Deliveries Missed the Mark
Tesla announced Wednesday it delivered 101,312 Model S and Model X cars in 2017, a 33 percent rise over its 2016 figures. Previously, Tesla was hoping to reach the 5,000/per week rate by the end of March.
According to NFL.com, the Packers are promoting Brian Gutekunst to the position of general manager. The Packers promoted him to director of college scouting in 2012 and director of player personnel in 2016.
It's a reported 5-year deal. The Packers named Gutekunst the GM before another team could do it first.
Cold weather to last through weekend
Hypothermia is also a serious risk; anyone outside is advised to dress as warmly as possible, says the Weather Service. A Wind Chill Advisory means that cold air and the wind will combine to create low wind chills.
Green Bay (7-9) finished with a losing record and out of the playoffs for the first time since 2008.
Gutekunst, Wolf and vice president of player administration and player finance Russ Ball are the three top internal candidates to be the team's next general manager. In addition to Gutekunst's promotion, another familiar face, Joe Philbin, is reportedly returning for a second stint under coach Mike McCarthy after serving as offensive coordinator from 2007-2011. Hiring an in-house personnel guy who aligns with his philosophy and a similar approach that Thompson took is a good thing for a coach who was given a quiet one-year extension in the middle of the last season.
